I don't remember where I found this recipe, but it's fast and easy and a good accompaniment to an Italian dish. I hope you'll like it, too!

My step-son happened by as I was making this and wanted to know what the special occasion was. LOL. This was really good. I made it with a chive & onion cream cheese that I had on hand. I'm sure I will make this again, maybe with fresh chives and Neufchatel cheese (so I don't have to feel so guilty about it!) Reviewed for Aussie/NZ Recipe Swap #14

I found this a really nice change, the cream cheese added something special - I would also like to add a bit more Zip if serving it with a spicy meal thanks for posting - I will definitely make this again

I felt that this bread was missing something. Garlic would have been a good addition. The cream cheese mixture was good, but not what I was expecting. I popped this on the upper rack of my grill while cooking the rest of the meal. It heated through nicely this way.
