Ham and Cheese French Loaf

My mom would make this recipe when we had a lot of people over as an appetizer/meal. The younger crowd loves it but it can be a little messy for others. If a ham and cheese sandwich could get any better, it has with this recipe.


1 lg loaf French or Italian bread
1 1/2 stick butter melted
1 tbsp minced dry onion
1 tsp mustard
1 tsp seasoned salt
1/2 lb sliced cooked ham
1/2 lb swiss cheese

Mix in small bowl butter onion, mustard, and seasoned salt, set aside. Cut bread horizontally about 1/2-3/4 inch thick. Place foil under loaf enough foil to wrap. Stuff between every two slices a piece of ham and cheese. Pour butter mixture over loaf, wrap and place on cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 20-30 minutes.

You can finish the recipe with parsley for a nicer presentation. This loaf can get soggy if left too long. If this happens just pop it in the oven to crust up.
