* preheat oven 200 degrees
* Bake for 20-25 minutes
* Spread on the rest of cheese 5 minutes before taking the pie out. Sprinkle paprika on pie.

Must apologise for being so sketchy in putting the recipe across but hope we'll get better as this is the first time we've done this. We hope you will be able to make out what we are trying to say and give it a try. It is delicious.

Some people are gifted with culinary skills, other with eating, I am not in category #1.

I wonder where that leaves me...

I'll be sure to do so, if ever the occasion permits that you cook this and I am in d'neighbourhood. Someday, somehow... :p
