    An American in Spain's Note:

    This is an outstanding addition to your Tapa Table and so easy to make. I received this recipe from my friend Pat who I had met in Sint Maarten.

      Wow, this recipe was great!! I did not have any basil, so I used dried parsley. I did not have 6oz of brie, so I put 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese and about 2-3 oz of cream cheese in the pan. I mixed and melted. The butter did not mix well with the cheese. I put the mixture on the french bread and broiled it. It still turned out wonderful. Thanks!

      We loved this recipe-It is easy and Oh so good. I cut the butter back to 1 tbsp, used a whole wheat Portuguese bun. I removed the rind from the Brie because I find that it doen't melt easily and depending on the type can add a bitter taste. This is a do again and again recipe

      As in Julie & Julia- you can never have too much butter! Loved this recipe but discovered that I am not a fan of brie cheese (this was the first time ever trying it). I would make this recipe again with a different type of cheese, maybe feta or gouda ??
