(Cindy Neuhaus) 5 stars.  I've now made this a gob of times---it's the keeper/favorite---and I've thrown away a lot of other recipes trying to top this.  To the questions--yellow prepared mustard, and I just triple the recipe using 3-16 ounce baguettes, 1 pound bacon (1/3 cup is about 5-6 slices, and it's really an OK amount for 1 loaf so I cook the whole pound & triple the rest), etc.  It's no more messy than a lot of appetizers--the melted cheese kind of holds the toppings in place.  Even at triple recipe, I've NEVER had any left over!  Others ask for the recipe. 5 stars, easy, a total keeper, delicious, everyone loved it & it was quickly snarfed down!

Bull: I doubt if the reviewers really made this dish. Ever try to eat something that had no bottom? you have stuff both on top and on the bottom, it had to be messy as hell to eat. Would be better if sliced the length and with the filling mixture between the upper and lower halves. Wrap, bake and then slice it into 1" pieces should work pretty well.
