*Once the cheese is mostly melted take them out of the oven.

* Go back around the tray carefully and place a little but more of the SAB on each cup, turn the oven to off, but place the tray back in there, to warm of the new SAB just added.

* You don’t only have to use Cheddar. Great variations of this dish can be done with other hard, bloomy rind, or semi soft cheese.Try: Blue Cheese, Chevre, Cream Cheese or Brie.
