This was fabulous! I so wanted it to be great, and I was not disappointed! I did use some slices of Hawaiian bread, as I had it on hand, and it was very complimentary to the recipe. As a matter of fact, I would make it the same way again! I also reduced it, for 2 of us, but wish I had made more. Now, I just have an excuse to make it again! Thanks so much for sharing, s'kat!

I printed this recipe November 22, 2003, and have made it so many times since then Iv'e lost count. This recipe takes a little time but so, so worth it. Crunchy bread, creamy cheese, sweet strawberries and a crunch sweet creme brulee type topping-MMMMMM. Thank you so much for a divine recipe s'kat!
