      Wow, who knew all it took was to saute the slices in oil before broiling was what it took to make your cheesy bread have that rich luscious flavor. Sound silly, but makes a world of difference. Next time I'll add a dash of garlic salt too. So fantastic I forgot to photograph it (took a bite of the too-hot test piece and promptly ate the rest of my share amid DH and DS's arms grabbing their share). Thanks Choccie!! Made for Family Picks during ZWT8. Go Lovelies!

      I used pain de campagne for the bread. It was absolutely delicious. The combination of pain de campagne and gruyere had a nutty taste after being lightly broiled. I will make again. Made for ZWT for The Fearless.

      Stunning in it's simplicity, I demolished this for a warming lunch today. Would be perfect, paired with a lovely tomato soup. I'm not used to the olive oil flavor, with fried bread, but it gave a nice, earthy undertone to the sweetness of the emmenthaler. Next time (and there will be a next time), I may top with some country ham, as that is one of my weaknesses! Thanks for sharing a wonderful, upscale take on 'cheese toast'.
