MY REVIEW

"I made a double batch of the bruschetta. The recipe stated 2-3 cloves of garlic. In doubling the recipe, I used 5, splitting the difference. I considered saut?ing the garlic in the butter/olive oil to infuse the garlic flavor but didn't. We all felt,although good, it lacked a garlic flavor. It was an easy fix by sprinkling a bit of garlic salt on each piece. Absolutely yummy! I also felt slicing the baguette in one inch slices it was a bit thick. Next time, I think I'll make then 3/4 of an inch. All in all, definitely a keeper and plan on making them again soon. Thank you, Stacey, for a great recipe."

"This was so delicious! The combination of buttery and crispy with the bread was a hit for me. It was a little messy but my 8 year old daughter and I loved it! Definitely will make again."

"I love this recipe and these things never last. I have made this both the original way, and with a couple changes - you can't lose. Instead of fresh tomatoes, I've used canned diced tomatoes seasoned with rosemary, well drained. It's best to eat these fresh from the oven and not let them cool at all, so put these in just as guests arrive."

"This recipe is quick and simple. At first while mixing, I thought it would be dry so I added a bit of extra mayo. But I didnt' need to do that. So I recommend making it just as it says. I added some chopped pitted black olives and they looked and tasted great. Everyone loved them."
