Also, it’s up to you if you’d like to mix your favourite cheeses, either way you’ll get a hearty, cheesy and a filling dish to indulge in, specially in those cold and windy nights. 

In our recipe, we used chicken breasts but you can definitely choose to amp up the flavours by using turkey or other types of meat instead. Or you can use more bacon as the main meat.
