Bacon-Cheese Garlic Bread
1 loaf French bread
1 1/2 sticks softened butter
3 T. oregano
1 T. minced garlic
1 t. crushed red peppers (optional)
approximately 8 slices processed Swiss cheese approximately 12-15 slices bacon
Slice a loaf of French bread into 1” slices; however, do NOT slice all of the way through!
Combine 1 ½ sticks softened butter, 3 T. oregano, and 1 T. minced garlic (1 t. crushed red peppers is optional). Spread this mixture between each of the slices.
Take a piece of processed Swiss cheese. Fold in half diagonally (resulting in two triangles of cheese). Place a triangle of cheese between each slice of bread.
Cut a piece of bacon in half lengthwise and widthwise. Drape a piece of bacon over each slice of bread. Wrap bread in foil, leaving the top exposed.
Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 20-30 minutes or until bacon is crisp.
This has been a family favorite for many years. It’s great with spagheti, lasagna, soup or even casserole!
