Sometimes I use baked squares of thawed puff pastry instead of toast. The puff pastry bakes up flaky and crispy. Phyl Broich-Wessling, Garner, Iowa

"This made a nice, light dinner served with pasta salad on the side. I followed the recipe exactly except for leaving out the mushrooms because I don't like them."
