We've been making and enjoying this yummy bread for decades, it's a real family favorite for over forty years! Quick and easy using a storebought French bread (or bake your own). Goes great with just about anything, from grilled steaks to summer salads to spaghetti or lasagna dinners. I'm sure this bread with it's light golden, fluffy topping will become your family's favorite, too. Enjoy! :) Notes: Can either be wrapped in foil and heated on the grill, -or- baked in the oven. Let rest for at least five minutes before cutting and serving. Careful, as topping will be very hot!
