This looks so good – I had this in a folder for awhile and found it when i was thinking about what “new” I could make for dinner. They came out so good – we sprinkled them with cheddar cheese and a dollop of sour cream and added chives and bacon bits. The toppings made their way inbetween the slices and it was really good and so simple. If watching caloried use low fat/fat free sour cream and cheese and skip the bacon bits.
For a festive look, serve in decorative Halloween cupcake liners.
