    In the end this tasted great I used 4 ounces of butter but I felt 4 ounces of salami; I used hot Hungarian so only used 2 ounces which added a lovely spicy flavour and it wasn't till I went to put it in the oven (barbie was not an option for me) that I realized I had not put in the basil which could have made a difference but as it was still delicious, I used a small Pane Di Casa sour dough bread and for 4 of us as a side was adequate. Still have some butter left over (in the freezer) and will add basil to it and make this again. Thank you TeresaS made for tag game For Your Consideration at
