I copied Yooper and served this bread with lasagna. This bread is gooey good! My friends and I enjoyed so much. It is a nice alternative to usual garlic bread. A keeper!

This was super! I adore artichokes, and combined with the cheese, it was just great. I served this bbqed chicken and ribs and this was the talk of the table. I've never had anything quite like this before, and it really was deliscious!!!!

This was dinner last night, along with some chicken noodle soup I had already made. Everyone loved it. I was wondering whether it might be a nice hors d'oevre, cut in small slices, but there wasn't any left to see if I could cut it up small; it was devoured right from the oven. I followed the recipe almost exactly, but substituted Smart Balance for the butter, and used all low fat cheeses.
