I just couldn't pass making this recipe my own when I spied it in an old Cooking Light magazine I had. I pumped up the spices and picked an applewood-smoked cheddar for maximum flavor. I plan on using the fresh, crisp lettuce one of my cooking class students brought me from her garden yesterday. Can't wait for dinner!
