I am giving this 5 stars for several reasons: it is an easy recipe that makes a lot of pick-up appetizers; everyone who tasted it liked it; many asked for the recipe; it is freezable and even includes directions for reheating from frozen.

This recipe is great for kids as it tastes like grilled cheese, but it's time consuming. It's also not very attractive unless you cut it into perfect shapes after baking. Usually 4 stars on this site is reliable.
