  • taste great. I omitted thee onion (allergy to onion family) and used swiss cheese instead of the american. I think next time I may use sour dough bread instead. - 3/23/10

  • Very Good
    These were very good. My kids didn't like how hard the bread got, but ate every bite once I cut the crust off. My husband ate them as leftovers and commented the next day about how good they were. They took a little more time than I was prepared for, but I will make again. - 2/14/10
