I made this following the recipe exactly using a mixture of butter and olive oil. The directions said to brush the cut sides with the mixture, but I found this hard to do, so I kind of spooned the mixture on the cut sides. At first I found the lemon too strong, but after 2 or 3 bites, the taste grew on me to the point that I like it very much. I think I just would have opened the aluminum foil for the last 5 minutes so the bread would be crispier. Thanks for posting!
