I had them once, on an hors d'oeuvre platter at a party, filled with Heinz canned vegetable salad (aka Russian Salad - cooked mixed veg (carrots, potatoes and peas, etc.,) in salad cream. Pretty vile but I saw a certain promise and developed a home-made recipe with "good" lemon mayonnaise and freshly cooked and cooled veg and it turned out very well. Can't remember the details but it wasn't hard to invent.

I had to look up both Russian salad and salad cream as I have never heard of either It's a type of potato salad, sometimes with meat in it, and the salad cream is described as similar to a thinned Miracle Whip. Interesting.

Im glad you give it a positive review, because I am looking SOOOO forward to making it

The recipe originally called for spinach too, but they had taken it out in this revised version. Either way, looks and sounds great

Larry, I remember making it with split baguette breads, with much of the soft bread removed. Cut into portions it was much easier to handle as finger food rather than a standard French bread.
I'm defiantly making this again soon, and I never used spinach although it might be good.
