Reviews for Artichoke-Cheese French Bread
"Used 1 T taco seasoning as we cant get green chillies here. It was very good & the visitors loved it. Nice change. I found it made enough filling for 2 loaves & served 20. Tasty & different!"
"I made this bread for Christmas Eve last year. Everyone loved it. I now have to make it for all holidays and gatherings. I do toast the bread shells under the broiler first before putting in the filling to help keep it from getting too soggy, but otherwise follow the recipe exactly. It is delicious!"
"None of my family liked this bread. As a matter of fact we actually threw it out after trying to eat it. We love artichoke, cheese and bread but this together was just not good. Sorry but I am taking this out of my recipe box."
