Questions & Replies

  1. I make this all of the time and it's always a hit! I'm going to a get together and was wondering if it can be made in advance or would it go soggy? I've prepped it I'd advance and just put it on the baguette when we were ready to have it which was fine. I'm just wondering if I could put it in the baguette approximately 2 hours in advance. Any advice? Thanks in advance!


  1. SO GOOD!!! I added crab meat to the original recipe and added another clove of garlic. It was out of this world!!!
  2. With such high ratings, I was expecting it to be much better. It wasn't bad but it wasn't that great either. It just didn't seem to have enough seasonings, and I made it exactly as the recipe directed. I would consider making it again, but I would double all of the spices and maybe add some onions and some olive oil.
  3. This looks wonderful! Will definately try. Is there a way to print this recipe??? Thanks in advance for any help!
  4. The best ever I found this recipe several years ago. A family favorite and requested often.
  5. i have made a different version of this recipe without the tomatoes.. but i think the tomatoes give it a nice flavor and color..i made the spread earlier in day...sliced my bread and put in ziplock bag till i was ready to assemble. real easy peasy and delicious!!
