Swiss Cheese Bake

Recently I noticed an interesting recipe in the food section of our local newspaper and decided it was a must-try. Compliments to Joanne Brown for sharing the tasty appetizer recipe!

Swiss Cheese Bake

1 loaf French Baguette
6 oz. Swiss cheese slices
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup minced onions
3 Tbsp. prepared mustard

1 Tbsp. poppy seeds
2 tsp. fresh lemon juice
2-3 slices partially cooked bacon

Cut bread in 3/4 inch wide slices, almost to the bottom, leaving the slices intact. Wrap foil around bottom and up the sides to help keep the breads shape. Cream together the butter, onion, mustard, poppy seed and lemon juice. Spread between all the bread slices. Insert pieces of Swiss cheese between each slice. Press loaf back together and place on large cookie sheet. Place the partially cooked bacon slices on top of baguette and bake at 350 degrees for two minutes until bacon is cooked and cheese is bubbling. Enjoy!
