These are great appetizers, or you could serve them as a side dish for a special dinner party. To make preparation a bit easier, shred the cheese when it's cold and firm.

This is actually a Swiss recipe (from Switzerland). But there is no "Swiss cuisine" category, so I picked French cuisine as I thought it was the closest match.
