This is one of my “go to” recipes when I need to bring an appetizer to a party, especially in the winter. I have been making this for a Superbowl party for the past few years and everyone seems to get pretty excited about it. This bread is seriously gone in minutes….so it must be good!!
Vienna Swiss Cheese Bread
1 Loaf Vienna Bread
1 lb. brick swiss cheese – cut in 1/4″ slices
3/4 C melted butter (or use half margarine)
1 tsp. seasoning salt
1 TB minced onion
1 TB dry mustard
1 TB lemon juice
4 oz sliced canned mushrooms (I used fresh too, and I liked it better)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cut bread on a diagonal, 1/2″ apart, making sure not to cut through bottom on loaf. Cut bread the same way in the other diagonal direction. Place bread on heavy duty foil.
Insert pieces on cheese into every little slot of the bread. Mix melted butter and the rest of the seasonings. Pour over the top of bread. Sprinkle with mushrooms. Wrap up to create a tent and bake at 350 degrees for 60 minutes.
Kitchen Tip: Bake for 1/2 hour and transport to the party house, then bake for an extra 1/2 hour so it comes out of the oven hot.
