Turns out beautifully and I usually serve this with melon balls or wedges drizzled with honey!

Welp guess I liked this better than most folks. Despite what seems like a lot of steps I didn't find it too difficult to make. Or maybe it just depends on what kind of steps you hate to do. (Me I hate peeling and chopping stuff up.) I original put a 4 on this made it again and didn't like it as well but also admit I didn't beat the egg whites very well the second time so apparently that's important. I liked it but do agree there's not much to it and I felt it necessary to eat 2 so more like 3 servings if you ask me. Something a little different anyway. Read More

Ho hum... not much to talk about here. I increased the mustard to 1 t. added 1/2 t. of minced garlic used 2 egg whites & added a few slices of canadian bacon on top of the bread - still too much work for too little reward. IF I made it again I might double the eggs & use all the whites & double the cheese (plus my other additions) for 6 pieces of bread. Then it might be better. Read More

I really breezed through this one! It hit the spot and everyone loved it. I imagine you might add a tad more mustard if you think it is too bland. We liked it just as it was. Jeanie Bean Read More

A lot of "fuss" with very poor results. Was not one that I would do again. Read More

Definitely wonderful...and what fun to eat too. I have found a new and easy treat for a Sunday brunch that even the kids enjoyed. If the recipe sounded good to you then try it. I read all the other reviews after I had eaten this and can't believe them. The flavours are nice and delicate yet spicy. Method is pretty straightforward even though I would toast the bread on both sides the next time. Adjust the cayenne for your audience I even made one extra spicy batch for the adults. I left out the salt and butter. Thank you for the recipe. Read More

Sorry. I thought since the main complaint was blandness I could make this work. But it wasn't good nor beautiful. Mostly weird. Read More
