Hot Ponderosas are an interesting variation of garlic toast baguettes that work nicely for outdoor grilling and cookouts. We cooked this one up while I was living in the mountains and cooking almost all of our meals outside. Be careful - they will flame FAST, so be quick with the tongs!

This was good and went well with my grilled ribeyes. I reduced the recipe to four servings and thought the amount of red pepper flakes and herbes de provence seemed to be too much so I reduced to a sprinkling of each.

THis was just OK for us. I was expecting an explosion of flavor that I never really found. I think I may give this one more try in the oven/under the broiler instead of grilling and see if that changes my opinion. THANKS for the recipe MCMIGUEL!

Very good. Don't turn your back; they will burn quickly.

I also thought that the recipe called for way too much red pepper flakes and herbes de Provence; I just used a little of each. I made these on the Foreman grill and they turned out well but I wouldn't mind doing them in the oven like garlic bread. We thought this was really tasty. Thanks McMiguel!

I used this as a spread and broiled instead of dipping and grilling. Will add more blue cheese next time. I really liked the addition of the W sauce.

i used more cheese than called for and i think it helped for the burning problem. i had to cook these suckers much longer than the 1 minute described and none burnt. they were good but i actually thought they needed more flavor. i would more than double the cheese and herbs next time. also tasted good with a little marinara.

these were good but very rich. I never thought I would say: almost too much butter.

Very good flavor but a bit too potant. I would use a little bitt less garlic butter and pepper. I still give it a 5 for the flavor. But either you have to get a lot more bread or use less topping because its a VERY strong flavor!!
