Recipe Notes

This is best eaten the same day it's made. If you store leftovers in the fridge the bread becomes softer but you can always put it back in the oven to crisp it up or try the microwave.


You can use regular full-fat mayo and sour cream or the light versions. I've used both with great results, but for best taste use the full-fat real stuff.
