    One of my favorite fall appetizers! I usually add some crumbled bacon, too. The whole loaf is always devoured in minutes. Delicious!

  2. As I read the string of comments, I count 56 that say sounds or looks good, ONE PERSON who actually MADE it. I am sure such compliments make everyone feel good, but I read comments because too often great looking, great sounding recipes don’t turn out well. I can’t afford to waste money on duds, and I’m not good enough at cooking to fix a bad recipe. C’mon all you great cooks who love posting, return after you make these recipes and let us hear how they work!

  3. I did try it & it was well received. Next time I will freeze the bread before I cut it & will use less Lemon Juice (probably because it was sourdough?) It was gone in just a few minutes. It turned out nice & crusty but the bread stayed nice & soft. It is a “keeper.”
