I should have read the last sentence first--Do not burn! These have to be watched--my oven did them in about 8 minutes. They are really delightful. I made them with bread triangles--next time I'll try English muffins. The topping was a bit liquid so I stuck them in the freezer to "flash freeze" for about 15 minutes and that worked well. I used dried minced onions as I didn't have fresh on hand. I'll definitely make these again (and maybe even experiment to see if I can freeze them). Thanks, Merlot, for a good, easy recipe!

AMAZING... Made these for a football party and they went so fast I didn't even get them off the cookie sheet! I agree with the other comments: use english muffins (I used about a whole package), add more parmesan to make topping thicker (I used about 1/3 cup), and only 8 minutes in the oven. Perfect!

these were good :) i agree that it is a little too liquid-y so i added a little more mayo, onion and chz. it also made almost TRIPLE the amount of bread for me. i used some soft loaf bread (almost like french bread) just cut in half and served them w/ my MIL's homemade marinara. yum! thanks!

I thought this was okay... I used two Tbsp of beer. Maybe next time I would try English muffins, but I had it as a dip for butter flavored crackers and my fiance and I liked that a lot better.

Very good. After reading other reviews, I cut down the beer to 2 tablespoons. The result was a tasty, quick, easy, and mild appetizer. Will try again with ciabatta bread or English muffins. Thanks for posting.

We really enjoyed this. So easy to put together. I too found the mixture was a little to thin so I added some additional parmesan and that worked well. Mine baked perfectly in 10 minutes. I used English muffins instead of bread slices, red onion which I'll use green onion next time and Corona beer. I might try spicing these up next time with some chopped jalapeno peppers. Thanks Merlot for a great recipe. Took them to the garage where several of the deer hunters were and they were gone in about 5 minutes. Thanks.

These were a yummy starter to our dinner last night. I found that 3 TBS beer was a bit too much, as well, so ended up adding more Parmesan cheese and mayonnaise. The outcome was delightful but I let them get just a little to brown (not burnt) for photos. I think that about 8 minute would be enough time next round. Thanks, Merlot. (:
