You can't go wrong with this recipe. It looks fantastic and people just flock to it! It's great with pasta, too. Cheesy, buttery and finger-licking good, this bread is hard to beat. It's so simple and the taste is sinful! —Karen Grant, Tulare, California

"My family loves this recipe. My only change - I use Dijonnaise instead of regular Dijon mustard. This maybe gives it a little milder mustard flavor. It's not low cal, but none of my recipes are!!"

"It also makes no sense to comment/complain about other ratings, give the recipe one star in order to do so, but give no actual feedback on the recipe. It takes away from the true rating for the recipe.

I did make this bread and it was delicious! I added crumbled bacon to the top and served it at a brunch tailgate. I will probably shred the cheese next time to allow better, more even melting."

"Amen Masterpiece. What good does it do to say they haven';t tired it, tasted it, or made it???? Hold REVIEW until AFTER you have actually attempted this or at least tasted it..."

"I don't understand how anyone who hasn't made this as written, can rate it appropriately. I wanted to see reviews from people who actually made this."
