"What a delicious appetizer. I used leftover ham from Easter. I was excited to use chives from my garden too! As another reviewer used a baguette, I would have like to also but it was not available the day I was at the store. I went with the French bread and wound up cutting each slice in half for a more manageable appetizer. The texture is perfect and everyone loved the subtle mustard taste. I followed the recipe exactly and it was perfect."

"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."
