"I have made this several times during the summer. I find it best to eat on regular bread. The french bread is too hard to eat."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 24, 2011

"We thought it was tasty... The French bread was a little too crusty and difficult to eat, next time we'll make fresh white bread and use that instead.All in all, good flavor and a nice change of pace. Thanks for the recipe!"
