Reviews for Almond Cheddar Appetizers
"These are great! Everyone loved them and several requests for the recipe. Thanks!"
"Have made this recipe twice. The first exactly like written and the second with a minor change. Both were served to dinner guests and both were completely devoured. The change made was to use baguettes instead of French bread. Taste is the same, but the presentation is prettier. Will use this recipe again and again."
"These appetizers are always a huge hit! I make them up ahead and pop them in the freezer (before baking) then you can just heat them up when unexpected company arrives."
"Very good!! Easy to make and tastes so good."
"I have been making this for years - known to us as simply "Mrs. Vickers" - I have always made it on bread slices but will try it on a french stick next time - I generally have them in my freezer -if there are any left -and friends ask me to bring these to their "Appie" parties - great 'go to' recipe."
"Fabulous! Lots of great comments from guests. I served on rye cocktail bread."
"Used Hormel turkey bacon bits ( first time I have Used) and mini ciabatta rolls. Just the right amount of crunch. Most excellent!"
"This recipe is a definate crowd pleaser. The family met at a time share and Pot Lucked Christmas this year. This was the favorite hot appetizer. Favorite for me because of the make ahead ease and favorite for the family because it is delicious. I made up all the ingredients (except the bread) and placed in a zip lock baggie. Then I took the loaf of bread out of the bag and sliced it into 1/2" slices and returned to the bag, twist tied it and took it to the timeshare to bake it. I never bothered slicing the bread slices again. That is a waste of time because EVERY ONE ate more than the equivilant of of a half slice! I used green onion and like a few others have mentioned used Hormel real bacon bits. I did cut the mayonaise a tad too. I just added enough for spreadability. I don't think you can go wrong here."
