Made for the tag game "Cooking Tag Mania" and I am so glad I did. I cut the recipe in half used French bread and we gobbled this down. Great appetizer for the Dodgers baseball game or really any time. Thank you for posting.
I made half a recipe but with 4 slices of French bread. This is a great side dish or appetizer. Do try this for a party or just a snack.
This is excellent! I had to use a French baguette since that's all my store had. I just cut it in thin slices so mine were smaller but still delicious! This sauce is just wonderful and I could have eaten it all by itself! My sauce wasn't thickened after 15 minutes so turned up to medium-high heat and it thickened nicely in no time. Thanks for posting this. A definite keeper.
