Chicken Mushroom Melts

These crisp, cheesy melts look special and taste great! "On busy weeknights, I like to serve these with a salad for a satisfying meal. But they make hearty appetizers as well," notes Sandra Futros of Dugald, Manitoba.

    I agree that this tasted bland. Even my husband who doesn't like strong flavors ate it but said it was "just ok". I even added the green onions as someone mentioned, but it just wasn't enough. Not bad, but not something I plan on making again.

    I thought that this was very bland. To jazz it up, I topped it with toasted almonds and green chives. If I make this again, I'm going to use Monteray Jack cheese instead.

    12/24/2008 - Excellent recipe but very filling. I made them as an appetizer and used thinner French bread slices. We only made one appetizer and each had 2 of these so we could still eat dinner.

    I tried this appetizer last Christmas when our family got together. I can't count how many times I've made them since then. Everytime I make them they get rave reviews by all. They are delicious and look quite fancy but are really easy to make.
