    Altered ingredient amounts. A slice of Gruy√®re cheese in each slit with the garlic butter before wrapping in foil and popping in the oven is also yummy!  -  03 Mar 2010


    Really easy recipe. I added some dried mixed herbs to the garlic and butter mixture. It went down a treat with the family. Next time I'll try adding fresh chopped parsley instead of the dried herbs  -  28 Jun 2017
