Swiss Cheesy Bread - Saturday Stirrings

Go see Carol @ I Throw Like A Girl for more Saturday Stirrings recipes!

Warning: You'll be tempted to hog it all for yourself!

1 large loaf French Bread
16 slices Swiss cheese
2 sticks of butter
1 small bell pepper
1 clove garlic, minced or crushed
1 small jar mushrooms/or fresh
1 large onion

You can play around with the components of this recipe. Use fresh or jarred mushrooms/garlic. You can use less butter...but don't cut it down too much. Omit onions if you are not an "onion person." But please, don't "cut the cheese." (A little "boy humor." I couldn't resist! Well I could, but that was funny!)
Place large piece of aluminum foil on baking sheet. Place a loaf of bread on cutting board and split French bread into 1" slices, careful not to cut through bottom of crust. Transfer bread to aluminum foil. Layer 1 slice of cheese in each split. Saute onion, pepper, garlic & mushrooms. Pour this over bread, letting it run down into slices. Cover with foil & bake at 350 for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted.

  9. I just gained some weight reading this recipe!! Yum!! The boy humor was appreciated...I'm the only girl in the house!I hear it all!!

  10. The next pot of Chili that I make, I am going to try this recipe. It sounds like an irresistable one to me. Thank you for sharing it.

  11. I'm trying to tell myself "I don't like cheese, I don't like bread, I crave carrot sticks, I crave vegetables." You'll be the first I'll tell that I'm going back on Weight Watcher's today. SURELY I can do this without going back to meetings. I guess I should blog about it and make myself accountable. Sigh.

  12. Love the boy humor!!!
    Hey, did you know you can make a can of refried beans "poop"? Store it upside down and when you open the lid, give it a good shake to get it to "go." My boys LOVE IT!!!
