“This sounds difficult to make, but really is not. I have served this recipe numerous times and am always asked for the recipe. Also family favorite. Asked for it by grandchildren. You can use other cheeses, but I like the Provolone. I prefer to buy good quality deli cheese and have it sliced, but you can used packaged cheese.”
