Professional Recipe: This recipe was provided by a chef, restaurant or culinary professional and makes a large quantity. The Food Network Kitchens chefs have not tested this recipe in the proportions indicated and therefore cannot make any representation as to the results.
Remember that cooking is an adventure, so add your own spices. Use quality cheese and allow it to melt. I like to add grilled onions and a sauce. If you add a sauce, you might want to put pickles on the side as they will add a steely taste. Experiment with sauces made on your own as it will be more gratifying. Remember to have fun.
