My mom, not The Mom.
I've been eatin' this since I was a kid. It's delicious. No wait, it's more than delicious. It's....I can't think of a better word.
She always made it with a loaf of french bread. She'd make even slices almost all the way through the whole loaf, but left it so that it was still intact. Once the goodies were tucked in between all the pieces, she'd wrap it in foil and bake it. If there was leftover spread, we'd get personal sammies on English muffins. Mmmmmm.
I needed an app to take to my sister's this weekend for the Duck's game and she requested this. I had a couple baguettes already, so that's what I used. I sliced them lengthwise, rather than having to individually make a zillion of them.
Here's the recipe:
1/2 C butter, melted
1 Tbsp poppy seeds
1 Tbsp lemon juice
3 Tbsp minced onion
3 Tbsp yellow mustard
1 loaf French or sourdough bread (or whatever bread you have in the house)
1/2 lb salami
1/2 lb Swiss cheese
Mix butter, poppy seeds, lemon juice, onion and mustard together to make spread.
Slice bread and brush with butter mix. Layer with meat and cheese.
If using a whole loaf, wrap in foil. Bake at 350 for 15 to 20 minutes.
If making open-faced sandwiches, they won't need to bake quite as long.
Here it is coming together at my house:
Then some salami.
Cheese on top.
I baked them up at my sister's and she sliced them into little finger sammies.
I had some of the spread and goodies left when I was assembling, so I pulled out some Grand Central Bakery rye and brewed up lunch.
Did I mention they're delicious?
