    This is a delicious and versatile recipe. I used leftover garlic bread that was quite dried out so I increased the liquid to 2 c (1 1/2 c milk & 1/2 c fat free half & half). I also added 4 or 5 slices of chopped prosciutto in the center. I assembled this the day before, covered it with foil, refrigerated it and the next day brought it to room temperature and removed the foil and baked it. This is a good recipe to use up leftover bread, cheese or perhaps ham, bacon, etc.

    I loved this. I followed the recipe exactly and used dried-up rye and wheat bread cubes.

    This was really good, although a bit of an unusual taste. I used an olive oil and basil bread, as its what I had. It was really quick to prepare, and as a whole, we all enjoyed it.


I WILL NOT say they are Vegetarian or Vegan any longer due to the database changes. I DO NOT WISH YOU TO RECOMMEND THEM. Consider them as faulty. It's your own fault if you trust them. Don't bother to review. Don't ask me a question. I won't answer. I'm not here anymore. I will NOT warrent any recipe on this site put up by me as correct due to Scripps problems. IF they claim to have fixed it, I still do not warrent any recipe as correct except the ones that I put up personally on the tripod site so use any recipe posted under my name at your own risk. Basic? Lots of luck. Now the ones at [see De Gustibus Veg*n in link on top], yeah, I will take responsiblity for all of them and the ingredients. I put them up and any errors are all mine. No the door didn't hit me on the ### but the skid marks in the parking lot are mine.
