    Used different ingredients. I used spreadable goat cheese and basil instead of thyme. Still delicious!  -  03 Dec 2008

    Sounds just like what I'm looking for for my fussy family on Boxing Day this Christmas - delicious and easy! Might have to use basil instead of thyme, but that's no problem. Thanks for sharing!  -  21 Sep 2012
