You can make this recipe in the oven or leave it cold, either of the 2 options you will love, you can also put as many layers of bread as you like and the container allows you, I only placed a layer of bread at the bottom to make it a little healthier but optional.

A dish with a very light spicy flavor, I give you the option of using Greek yogurt instead of cream to make it with less fat, you can also omit the cream cheese if you wish.
