I serve this satisfying bread as a side with meat, fish and main-dish soups and salads. The savory slices are lifesavers when you need a last-minute appetizer or brunch item. —Lori Stefanishion, Drumheller, Alberta

"Next time I will use only half the cream cheese spread -- it overwhelmed the other flavors. Definitely a keeper!"
