"These are so good!! and really simple to make. I used a baguette so they were small if you use French bread they'd be a meal. I used reduced fat cream cheese."

"I added 5 thin slices of dried beef (from a jar) that I had diced. It gave it the zip and salt it needed without being too salty. I also added a teaspoon of dill weed for flavor. Great!"

"These are the best little snacks ever! I used a bagette bread so they were small but so good. I ate them all before the night was done. I did broil mine after baking so everything melted and got alittle crispy. I had left over topping so the next day I made more for lunch."

"I cook almost weekly for other people so I'm lways looking for new and delicious recipes. This recipe is absolutely delicious! As suggested by another cook, I used 1/4 cup of mayo. This makes the mix easier to spread on the bread. Also, I used French baguette slices which are the perfect size for an appetizer. This recipe is a keeper!"
