"I've seen quite a few variations on this recipe over the years. The version I made tonight was basically this one, except I couldn't find any sourdough bread and had to use Italian bread, and I forgot to buy Monterey Jack so instead used a mixture of grated provolone, grated mozzarella and grated Parmesan. I also added a minced clove of garlic to the melted butter. Really delicious!"

"I'd forgotten about this recipe until I saw it today while searching for appetizer recipes for our family's New Year's Eve celebration! I used to make this for a meatless Friday meal for our family of 8, & everyone loved it! Didn't change a thing! Some of our kids would dip it in barbeque sauce of Ranch dressing."

"Served this for Christmas Eve party. It was a HUGE hit. People raved about how good it was. So easy. Did add 1 tsp of Jarred minced garlic....and....it was fantastic. You won't believe that you can get all the cheese in the bread ..... but you can. I used 1 lb. of 3 cheese Mexican mix. There were only 6 adults and several other appetizers. Still over half the loaf was devoured. Hubby and I heated up (uncovered in the oven at 400 for 15 min) leftovers and it was still incredibly wonderful.

Thank you for this excellent recipe. It is very versatile also. You can use different breads and/or different cheeses at your whim. Enjoy!!"

"Made this for a football party & it was a big hit. So good!! My store didn't have sourdough bread so I used an Italian loaf & it worked fine. I also added a clove of minced garlic. Give this recipe a try...you won't be disappointed!"
