This was really good stuff. I made it twice beause the first time I burned the bread because I was in a hurry and burned it under the broiler. When I made it the second time I warmed the butter in the microwave and it was a little melted. That made it much easier to spread than the first time. I also made my own three cheese blend using asiago, parmesan and mozzarella cheese.
