    This is another recipe that was in the 2008 Weight Watchers cookbook that I've played around with. These are good leftover toasted.

      Nimz- if I could do 10 stars I would! Thjese are great! So easy to put together and fast out of te oven. I scaled the recipe to 1/2 asthere is only DH and I. Perfection! Each bite gave you a bit of the "mmmm mmmmm's" DH is not a huge bread eater and he gobbled 2 of them. Great testament to your recipe. Tonight I am going to try this recipe with cheddar cheese.

      Oh My GOSH!!!! These were incredible. I made them almost exactly as written (only used 1/2 tsp dried basil). It was so good. I ate half the batch before they could even cool last night. I coudn't ask for an easier, tastier recipe. Thanks so much for sharing!
