Expert Tips

To reduce the fat in each serving of this bread by about 2 grams, use fat-free cream cheese in place of the regular cream cheese.

To prepare this recipe on the grill, wrap the bread in heavy-duty aluminum foil or a double-thickness of regular foil. Place the package on the grill over medium coals for 8 to 10 minutes, turning occasionally.
