Should I just propane, or broiler, or what? Or not bother?

I use buttered bread crumbs.

Shredded extra sharp cheddar and run it under the broiler.

I'd combine both of the above toppings, because why not get both?  I hear crumbled up ritz crackers work well for the bread crumbs.

They do.

Keebler Original Club Crackers (the ones in the green box) also work well.

I bake mine covered in foil, remove the foil in the last 15 minutes and broil for 5 minutes if the top isn't browned like I want it.

I am becoming partial to buttered bread cubes.
