Bacon Swiss Garlic Bread

Ooooh I love a good cheesy garlic bread, but I also love bacon....like really really love bacon.

Have been meaning to try this bread for a while but just never got around to it, until tonight.  I figured it was the perfect pairing to my Savory Beef over Noodles.

I made a big 20 inch french bread loaf, but froze half of it for another meal as it would be just too much for our family of 4.

Bacon and Swiss Garlic Bread
Adapted from:  Taste of Home


1 loaf (1 pound) French bread (20 inches)
2/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/3 cup chopped green onions
4 teaspoons prepared mustard
Garlic powder to taste
5 slices Swiss cheese
5 bacon strips

Cut bread into 1 inch slices, leaving slices attached at bottom.  In a bowl, combine butter, onions, mustard and garlic powder;  spread on both sides of each slice of bread.

Cut each slice of cheese diagonally into four triangles;  place between the slices of bread.  Cut bacon in half widthwise and then lengthwise;  drape a piece over each slice.

Place the loaf on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil.  Bake at 400 F for 20 to 25 minutes or until bacon is crisp.

Yield:  10 servings

If you're freezing for later, prepare as above, then wrap tightly in foil and freeze.  I don't know exactly how long it will last, I'm assuming as long as normal frozen garlic bread.  I will be using mine next week when I make another pasta dish so it won't sit in the freezer for too long.
