Feature Recipe For The Week 8/6/16
Melted cheese and lots of garlic are the stars of this recipe! This bread is a real crowd-pleaser, and it is great served with your favorite steak, chicken, salad or soup. The Garlic Granules are used to provide the garlic punch with the Yellow Mustard Seed Powder and Seasoning Salt added for an additional delicious flavor. This bread can be baked in the oven or on the grill. After cooking, just open the aluminum foil and serve by pulling apart the cut diamond pieces. Then, stand back and watch it disappear. It is pure garlic bliss at its best!
1 large loaf (uncut) of Vienna or French Bread
12 oz Swiss Cheese or Monterey Jack Cheese (cut into 1/4 inch long slices)
2 sticks of butter or margarine (melted)
1 Tblspn Garlic Granules
1 tsp Yellow Mustard Seed Powder
1/2 tsp Seasoning Salt
1 tsp Lemon Juice
2 Tblspns Chopped Fresh Parsley
or 1 Tblspn Chopped Fresh Chives
Cut the top of the bread loaf iin a criss-cross pattern (diamond cuts), but not through to the bottom of the crust. Place the bread on heavy-duty aluminum foil (spray the inside of the foil with cooking spray) - large enough to cover the bread completely and wrap around the loaf. Place the cheese slices into each of the cuts on the top of the bread (make sure there is cheese stuffed in each and every cut). Add the spices and the lemon juice to the melted butter/margarine and whisk together until it is well mixed. Pour this mixture over the top of the bread, making sure all areas of the bread are covered with the mixture. Close the foil tightly around the loaf. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 30 - 40 minutes. Remove from the oven after cooking and sprinkle the top of the bread with the optional toppings, if desired. Serve immediately.
