Cooking Thursday - Bacon Swiss Garlic Bread7:19 AM
Good morning ladies, here we are at another Thursday and right around the corner from the weekend.
Here's a great twist on the usual garlic bread.
Bacon and Swiss Garlic Bread
Adapted from: Taste of Home
1 loaf (1 pound) French bread (20 inches)
2/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/3 cup chopped green onions
4 teaspoons prepared mustard
Garlic powder to taste
5 slices Swiss cheese
5 bacon strips
Cut bread into 1 inch slices, leaving slices attached at bottom. In a bowl, combine butter, onions, mustard and garlic powder; spread on both sides of each slice of bread.
Cut each slice of cheese diagonally into four triangles; place between the slices of bread. Cut bacon in half widthwise and then lengthwise; drape a piece over each slice.
Place the loaf on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil. Bake at 400 F for 20 to 25 minutes or until bacon is crisp.
Yield: 10 servings
If you're freezing for later, prepare as above, then wrap tightly in foil and freeze. I don't know exactly how long it will last, I'm assuming as long as normal frozen garlic bread. I will be using mine next week when I make another pasta dish so it won't sit in the freezer for too long.
