  1. This was a big hit at my Christmas Eve party. Thanks
  2. This was a rave hit at dinner a dinner party last night! I used my own fresh dried rosemary and maple bacon crumbles with Saint Andre brie from the freezer I had. I am going back to the depot to get another wheel, cut it into wedges re-wrap and freeze. Cook bacon freeze, cut up french bread and freeze. Holidays are here, I don't want to be caught without ingredients on hand this is so easy! Will be great for last minute holiday guests. This could be served as a meal with a hot bowl of onion soup. I did prep this in advance a couple hours didn't get too soggy, everyone still devoured it. Toasted in mini toaster oven darkness set at 2 max # slices - hit start button 2x. Thank you for this recipe.
  3. I am not adding stars at this stage as it did not work out for us but I think in part that may be my fault. I made a couple of hour ahead of putting it under the grill/broiler. I cooked up diced bacon in the frypan, coated the bread with the butter, garlic, oil and rosemary and put on the brie cheese but even after 15 minutes under the grill/broiler at 175C non fan forced it had not browned and a lot of the cheese had slipped onto the tray. The flavours were good but the bread was soggy (this may be because of my action of putting the oil/butter mix on way to early and it soaked in and made the bread soggy), the DH also commented he would have preferred a sharp cheddar to the triple cream brie cheese that I used. Thank you Rita~ for posting and to Karen Elizabeth for the recommendation, made for I Recommend tag game.
  4. Wow these turned out great! Exactly what I was looking for. It was great for my dinner party -- I didn't have anything left :)
  5. I made this up for a quick lunch and enjoyed it! My granddaughter tried some and asked for the recipe! I did add a little crumbled lavender to the top. It added a nice touch. Thanks Rita! Made for the Epicurean Queens for ZWT 2009.
