How to Make Swiss Poppy Seed Bread


  • 1Cut a piece of aluminum foil large enough to hold the French bread loaf and a couple inches extra on each end.
  • 2Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
  • 3With a serrated knife, slice the bread diagonally in 1-inch slices.
  • 4Place the bread in the middle of the aluminum foil.
  • 5Insert half of a Swiss cheese slice between each slice of bread.
  • 6Melt the butter in a saucepan.

    Turn the heat to low.
  • 7To the butter, add the minced onion, mustard, lemon juice, poppy seed and season salt.
  • 8Remove the saucepan from the stove, and pour a little bit of the mixture between each slice.
  • 9At this point, if you wanted to turn this into a sandwich, you would place a piece of deli ham between each slice of bread.
  • 10Wrap the aluminum foil around the bread, but do not cover it completely.
  • 11Bake for 30 minutes.
  • 12Remove the bread from the oven and serve immediately. This bread is addictive!
