This recipe received positive comments at a party for tasting a friend's new cranberry wine. It was a good accompaniment along with other finger foods. My French bread must have been extra large because the generous portion of filling didn't make the top of the bread, but the filing held together well when I cut the loaf in squares. The smooth, slightly tangy filling pairs well with the crunchy bread. I had made the recipe weeks earlier, baked half and froze half. Yesterday's was the frozen half and it tasted just as good, if not better than the original.

Made this appetizer for a Holiday party this weekend. It is amazing. It was the first app to go and everyone asked me for the recipe. I did not put the sesame seeds in it and I did use 2 cups of cheddar cheese. Loved it.
