Yield: Makes about 5 dozen hors d'oeuvres.

A milder cheese works just as well in this versatile dish, which can be served as an hors d'oeuvre, turned into a casserole with the addition of a little milk and some cooked rice or pasta, or used as a topping for English muffins or as a filling in rolled fillet of sole.
