Delicious! I cut the recipe in half and just about any type of bread can be used as long as it's toasted. I put a little kosher salt on my tomato along with a bit of pepper and added some minced garlic to the cream cheese. I didn't have alfalfa sprouts so I used some fresh basil instead. I also used light cream cheese and light mozzarella. You know it's done when the cheese is nice and bubbly!


I liked this, but it needed something, so the next time I spread mayo on the bread first (you have to use whipped cream cheese in that case, though, because the regular, even at room temp, sticks to the knife not the bread) and I spread mashed avocado over the cream cheese. I liked jack cheese better than mozerella and thought it was better with the sprouts added last (after it came out of the oven) because warm sprouts didn't do it for me. Without changes, four stars. With changes, five.


First time I prepared these I followed the recipe exactly and they were wonderful! Second time around I used tortillas instead of the bread, added an envelope to Ranch dressing mix to the cream cheese, added sliced cucmbers and rolled them up. Just as good as the first time but with a little bit of a twist.
