    We made these for a New Years party. They were a big hit with the party goers and super easy to make. We used mascarpone cheese instead since we had it in the fridge but I'm sure it would be great with cream cheese.  -  01 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Very good and so easy! I used 2 basil leaves per bread slice and served them with sliced cantaloupe. Thanks for the recipe!  -  16 Aug 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Easy, easy and my guests cleaned the plate. I did half capicola and half sopressato. Sopressato went first. Took another's advice, 2 basil leaves (one is too subtle) and served with melon slices. I gave 5 stars for the quick easy and relatively inexpensive idea.  -  29 Sep 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
