"Great recipe! I added green chiles because we like a bit of spice. I also made a beer dough in the bread machine instead of frozen dough. Its a good base recipe but i would recommend dressing it up a bit with onion and garlic powder too."

"This is fairly good, something different. I like to squirt just a little yellow mustard on top once it's finished cooking."

"I couldn't wait to make this recipe. Although i too made a few minor alterations. I used ground chicken, diced up 2 dill pickle stacker slices and added a bit more ketchup to balance out the mustard ketchup ratio. DELICIOUS! Oh yeah, and don't be scared of the french bread, if you UNROLL starting at the seam there are no issues, you don't have to roll it with a rolling pin. I rolled mine out on a glass cutting board and after filling and pinching seams, i placed the sprayed cookie sheet directly on top, and flipped the whole thing over, slowly removing the cutting board, it transferred remarkably well."
