I have made this several times for get-togethers, as well as a side for dinner. My family loves them. I used cheddar cheese for awhile until I found the Old English cheese, they were still great. I also use english muffins in place of the bread rounds, really really good. Love her reciepes, they are always a hit

This is one of my family's favorite appetizers. Try the recipe on english muffins. Cut into 4ths and freeze. Makes for an easy go to appetizer!

Wonderful recipe! Everyone loved them and I have made them several times now. I recommend cutting back on the butter a little since they seem to come out very buttery and greasy at times. The last time I made them I used a little less butter and they were just right.
