"Hot Ponderosas are an interesting variation of garlic toast baguettes that work nicely for outdoor grilling and cookouts. We cooked this one up while I was living in the mountains and cooking almost all of our meals outside. Be careful - they will flame FAST, so be quick with the tongs!" — MCMIGUEL

5 1/2 tablespoons
2 1/2 tablespoons
crumbled blue cheese
3 1/2 tablespoons
herbes de Provence
crushed red pepper flakes
sea salt and ground black pepper to taste
thin baguette, cut into thick slices
This was good and went well with my grilled ribeyes. I reduced the recipe to four servings and thought the amount of red pepper flakes and herbes de provence seemed to be too much so I reduced to a sprinkling of each.
THis was just OK for us. I was expecting an explosion of flavor that I never really found. I think I may give this one more try in the oven/under the broiler instead of grilling and see if that changes my opinion. THANKS for the recipe, MCMIGUEL!
This mixture is wonderful....i didn't have her deprovence so i substituted it with fresh rosemary and fresh basil. It was funny because yes we burnt these all so we tried again and only burnt some...think i wiill try the oven next..i love this mixture!
I also thought that the recipe called for way too much red pepper flakes and herbes de Provence; I just used a little of each. I made these on the Foreman grill, and they turned out well, but I wouldn't mind doing them in the oven like garlic bread. We thought this was really tasty. Thanks, McMiguel!
Very good. Don't turn your back; they will burn quickly.
I used this as a spread and broiled instead of dipping and grilling. Will add more blue cheese next time. I really liked the addition of the W sauce.
i used more cheese than called for, and i think it helped for the burning problem. i had to cook these suckers much longer than the 1 minute described, and none burnt. they were good, but i actually thought they needed more flavor. i would more than double the cheese and herbs next time. also tasted good with a little marinara.
All I can say is awesome, awesome, awesome! My family (children included) fought over what was left!
