“Lovely tasty, filling & actually a rather healthy open faced sandwich - got it in an email from Cream Puffs in Venice. Never want to lose this - it is sooo tasty! Please use a good chewy flavorful bread for this - it makes the recipe worthwhile. I have used mixed seed, sourdough, pumpernickel - all home-made with recipes off Zaar. All with fabulous results.”
