This is great but I add 1 TBS. of horse radish or to taste instead of onion and top with thin slice of pepporoni.

I did not like this recipe at all. It was too onion-y and the bread got soggy by the end of the evening.

These are wonderful! The second time I made them with Swiss cheese instead of Parmesan and they were even better.

These are so easy and absolutely delicious. We used them in our cheesy day at work and they were a tremendous hit.

I made this spread up the night before and just put it on the bread when i was ready to put it in the oven. I also added some finely grated old cheddar as well. This turned out great and my company raved about it. Good onion flavour and the smell is fantastic while it is cooking. Will make this again.

These were a grrrreat idea! I improvised a little - I used red onion, and added dried parsley and a bit of garlic powder to the mixture. I put it in a little food processor and it worked great! It took like 5 minutes and it looked like a gourmet spread because of the beautiful colors from the red onion and parsley. I also used a baguette and sliced them real thin. I spread the topping on the bread about an hour before the party and then when people got there threw them in the oven for about 15 minnutes, until they were golden brown. They smelled delicious and were delicious even when they weren't hot anymore!

I love these. Had them at a party and loved them so much I got the recipe and had them special made for the cocktail hour at our wedding. Now I make them for every party just to tide people over. I use a little less mayo than this recipe calls for. But I'm sure it's fabulous too!

Yup, this was easy and yummy. I made my spread the night before and only had to smear it on the bread. Came out great, everybody ate them up!!
