Reviews for Beef and Blue Cheese Crostini
"Excellent. Easy. Impressive. Cannot go wrong with this appetizer. I made it exactly as the recipe stated, and it was perfect!"
"I've made these twice this past week. They are easy to make. Second time I left out the chives and bleu cheese since I only had freeze-dried chives and my hubby doesn't like bleu cheese, and substituted fresh onion and a bit of dill. I liked those as well. I suspect you can't go wrong if you have nice roast beef! Oh, it only took me about 3/4 of a pound of roast beef to make them.."
