Hot Ponderosas!

Hot Ponderosas!


"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!"

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 s...

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 ...

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.
