Served these at a Christmas party and they were a hit. Easy and quick to assemble. I made the cheese spread early in the day and refrigerated until ready to use. The almonds add a fun crunch factor!

I made these appetizers for Christmas and my guests loved them! They were easy to make and very tasty. The one small change I made was I used white cheddar cheese because I am allergic to Annatto, the coloring used in yellow cheeses. This recipe is a definite keeper!

Have made this recipe twice. The first exactly like written and the second with a minor change. Both were served to dinner guests and both were completely devoured. The change made was to use baguettes instead of French bread. Taste is the same, but the presentation is prettier. Will use this recipe again and again.

These appetizers are always a huge hit! I make them up ahead and pop them in the freezer (before baking) then you can just heat them up when unexpected company arrives.

I have been making this for years - known to us as simply "Mrs. Vickers" - I have always made it on bread slices but will try it on a french stick next time - I generally have them in my freezer -if there are any left -and friends ask me to bring these to their "Appie" parties - great 'go to' recipe.

Fabulous! Lots of great comments from guests. I served on rye cocktail bread.

Used Hormel turkey bacon bits ( first time I have Used) and mini ciabatta rolls. Just the right amount of crunch. Most excellent!
