We love this little "appy" and I get frequent requests to make it. A snap to make considering the high yumminess factor and the impressive presentation. Using the French baguette is easy and using the packaged pita or bagel chips is even easier. Hmmm.... quick and easy or quicker and easier?! It's cooks choice and so are the ingredients for topping. Use your own preferences and make this pretty little appy your own!
