Wow, this recipe was great!! I did not have any basil, so I used dried parsley. I did not have 6oz of brie, so I put 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese and about 2-3 oz of cream cheese in the pan. I mixed and melted. The butter did not mix well with the cheese. I put the mixture on the french bread and broiled it. It still turned out wonderful. Thanks!
This bread is just luverly! I used a day-old ciabatta loaf instead of French bread. I think I could have cut down on the butter and still ended up with the same mouth-watering results. When I do this next time, I think I will cut the rind off the brie...I don't particularly care for the rind and, also, i noticed that it didn't melt as well as the rest of the ooey-gooey, oh so yummy brie did. Thanks for a blue ribbon recipe! Love it.
yummy!! this is just divine!!! i could have ate the whole mixture by itself with a spoon! luckily, i was able to restrain myself! i made this up ahead of time and all i had to do was pull it out of the fridge and broil as recommended! this is a great way to do bread instead of the usual boring garlic bread. i will be making this time and again! thanks for the keeper!

I moved to Spain about 2 years ago from San Diego after I retired. I am now living my dream of living the Sapnish culture. I love to cook and especially like Spanish food. I intend to share some of the recipes with you over the next weeks. Would love to hear from anyone interested in Spain. Ron Brown
