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

french bread loaf
1 pkg
swiss cheese
1/2 c
2 Tbsp
minced onion
1 Tbsp
dutch mustard or grey poupon
2 Tbsp
fresh lemon juice
2 Tbsp
poppy seed
1/2 tsp
season salt


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!
