      Loved it, Kathy... and I usually don't bake anything! (I will post a full review later). Super easy and yummy (my kind of recipe). Thanks for sharing. (Made for PRMR)

      This is a good recipe. I thought it would have more flavor. Maybe I had more dough and didn't have enough filling. I don't know cause I made my own white bread dough. I would have like more than 1/2 cup of onion. I used 1 cup of swiss cheese but more would be great I'm sure. I didn't add any seeds on top. Thanks KateL :)

      I made my own dough and baked this as rolls, rather than as a loaf, since we would not have been able to eat an entire loaf, or even half. It worked really well. I am sure it will warm up nicely tomorrow for my lunchtime soup. I will try this with different cheeses, and perhaps sliced ham or turkey rather than bacon next time.
