"Followed the ingredient list completely and layered it in a baking dish as instructed. No microwave, so I baked it uncovered at 400* for about 30 minutes until hot, the cheese melted, and the bread cubes toasted. My husband gave it two thumbs up..a keeper. I chose the Monterey Jack cheese."

"I used leftover corned beef rather than the pastrami. I was very good,"
