"It's been a while since I made this,am definitely making again soon,I'm not a mushroom fan so I used thinly sliced white potatoes, twice.Got rave reviews,both times, looks just like the picture,very impressive looking.It takes a little more time than 15 mins,and I think it had to cook a little longer but it's worth it,even the vegetable haters liked it,I did use a little more bread the second time I made this,just like 2 or 3 slices more."

"This took longer than 5 min to prep, but it was very very good. I also had to cook it loner than stated, by about 20 mins."
