A great appetizer, party fare or late night snack. Good crusty French bread and freshly grated cheese are the key elements. Three minutes worth of grating will give you a great taste, at less then half the price of pre-grated cheese. Cheese bread can be made with many variations. Cooked bacon or pepperoni can be placed on the bread beneath the cheese, black olives or bell peppers can be sprinkled on top.

  • 1 Cup grated Mozzarella, Monterey Jack or Swiss cheese
  • 1 Cup grated Colby or Cheddar cheese
  • 1 6" piece of French bread, split
  • 2 TB. butter
  • 1/2 small yellow or red onion
  • 1-2 tsp. ITALIAN HERB MIX
  • 1/2 - 1/2 tsp. CRUSHED RED PEPPERS

Turn oven to broil, (low broil if you have it). Cover a cookie sheet with foil. Grate cheese into a large bowl, toss to combine. Butter bread lightly but thoroughly. Place on the cookie sheet. Mince onion very finely, sprinkle over bread. Shake on half of the ITALIAN HERB MIX and CROUTON SEASONING or GARLIC SALT. Mound the cheese onto the bread, being careful to cover evenly. Sprinkle on the remainder of the spices and dust with CRUSHED RED PEPPERS. Place bread in the oven, broil 5-7 minutes until cheese is bubbly brown and bread is crispy. Watch carefully. Remove from oven, cool briefly, slice into 2" pieces and serve. Wonderful with Sangria or as the start of an Italian meal.
