1 loaf unsliced French Bread
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 teaspoons onion powder
1 tesaspon garlic powder
1 1/2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
3 tablespoons chopped chives or scallions
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cut “X” slices in your bread, not cutting all the way through, to make little squares you can stuff in between cuts. Use your fingers to pull the squares apart a bit so you can stuff it easier.
Melt butter. Mix in lemon juice, onion powder, garlic powder, and mustard. Whisk well until combined. Wrap bottom of bread large piece of heavy duty foil.
Pour butter mixture evenly throughout all the little crevices in your bread. Stuff cheese around in the same way. Use the foil to wrap up the bread completely.
Place bread on a baking sheet. Bake for 12 to 20 minutes or until cheese is well melted and bread gets toasted. Sprinkle chives, or scallions on top. Serve right away warm out of the oven. Pull apart to serve. You can also grill the bread over indirect heat. Be careful not to burn the bottom. Do not put it over direct heat.
Great served as an appetizer or with soups or stews!
