Top Review by Bergy

What a great idea Eve - I made these instead of my usual Saturday Hamburger and loved them. I buttered the outside of the slice of bread and placed that next to the muffin tin - it didn't stick at all - I removed the crusts as I used wonderful home made Italian bread and the crusts would be quite hard to get throught.The cheese on the fresh tomato looks great - only thing I did differet was to add a tsp of hot chili flakes - Thanks Eve - not just a kid pleaser
