The recipe is only for the bread, but you could easily add some ham to it to make a great sandwich.

    swiss cheese
  • 1/2 c
  • 2 Tbsp

How to Make Swiss Poppy Seed Bread


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

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