Something else. Very tasty. I toasted at 150 degrees for 10 - 15 minutes. - 29 Sep 2008


Used different ingredients. Like others, I lowered the amount of butter. I also added brown sugar to the butter, and while toasting I threw on some maple syrup. delish! - 29 Sep 2008


Something else. I thought these were great. I only had them in the oven about 25 minutes before they started looking like they were burning. My oven is off quite a bit though. Just peek at them every 10 minutes the first time you make them. My husband thought they were a little too rich to eat on their own, but is taking some to work to put on his salad. I might experiment with some additional seasonings next time. Garlic salt or parmesan would be great. Definitely a keeper. - 29 Sep 2008
