You can actually see the melted cheese in the finished product, and that's always a good thing! I must warn you that the dill taste is strong though, so if you don't like the flavor of dill, try substituting with another herb you enjoy. If you do that, mix up the type of cheese, too. Like rosemary with asiago, or chives with white cheddar, or basil with mozzarella.
