    My company enjoyed them. It's nice to serve something different for a change. These little appetizers looked like there was a lot of time spent making them. I made everything up ahead of time and then just popped them into the oven. On some of them I used shredded mozzarella cheese and that looked nice bubbling over the sliced peppers and olives.

    OMG!! I can't believe how incredible these appetizers are. I made them for a game-night party.They were so delicious and beautiful, I got stingy and wanted to hoard them all for myself. I got over it and let my guests at 'em. The mushroom topping is mouthwatering. Baked on toasted bread rounds--the best. Thanks Fandoos :)

    We love the flavor - tasty, easy to make and not too expensive (even if they taste like you spent hours in the kitchen) I used a European loaf of white bread, cut off the crust and then cut the slice into different shapes, four per slice. Garnished with chopped black olives and a piece of pimiento. I doubled the recipe, froze some on a cookie sheet , covered, when frozen I plastic wrapped them and put them in to a carboard box- doubled recipe made 48. Excellent appetizer thanks Fandoos
