Reinventing Something Tastey: Cheesy Bread Spread

Growing up my sister would make this yummy ooey-gooey-cheesy bread that we lovingly called, "Aunt Bonnie Bread". Aunt Bonnie was actually an Aunt of one of my sisters friends, but since we didn't have a name for this lovely treat we lovingly used her name. It consisted of cheddar cheese, green onions, and mayo mixed together and spread on to plain white bread. This bread was then toasted in the oven till all hot and bubbly and browned. A perfect after school snack or with about any dinner dish. Here I took that simple snack and dressed it up with a little kick.

The reinvention:
Cheese plate with Cheddar Cheese, Salami, and Sweet Spicy Mustard = Cheesy Bread Spread.

Cheesy Bread Spread

2 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
5-7 Salami Slices diced
1 Green Onion chopped
3 Tablespoons Sweet and Spicy Mustard
1 Cup Mayonnaise
One Baguette

Mix all ingredients together minus the Baguette.

Slice the Baguette into small round slices. Spread the cheese mixture onto each Baguette slice.

Place on cookie sheet and bake in 400 degree oven for approx 7-10 minutes. The Cheese should be melty, bubbly, and slightly browned.

(Event the picky eaters ate this when offered as mini pizzas)
Bon' Appetite!
