My best friend Linda, served this appetizer last night. I wouldn't leave until she gave over the recipe!
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1⁄4 cup finely chopped green onion
- 1 (4 ounce) can diced green chilies or 1 (4 ounce) can jalapenos
- 1 cup monterey jack cheese, grated
- 1⁄4 cup mayonnaise
- 1⁄2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 loaf French bread (baguette)
- Combine butter, onion, peppers, cheese, mayo, and garlic powder.
- Slice bread 1/4 inch thick, spread with butter mixture.
- Broil until cheese bubbles.
OMG...I'm not a cook, but spent time researching recipes one could freeze in advance...out of town group visiting and wanted easy pop-in-the-oven appetizers. This recipe was a huge success...have used it on 3 occasions and each time received requests for the recipe....as reviewers suggested used 1/2 cup butter, 1 can of chilies and 1 tablespoon finely chopped jalapenos to add a kick...I'm tellin' ya....people love 'em !!! Oh, I prepared the mix and bread...put in freezer on sheet for 15 minutes to set, then put in bag and froze until needed. Baked for 10 minutes at 350 (this really toasted and crisped the bread) then broiled a minute or two until bubbly....these might be even better frozen as the baking really crisps them up.....
These are fast, easy and delicious. I made these for a family potluck because they can be served with anything. They were a big hit. The recipe can be easily improvised for what you have on hand- I have substituted the chilies for fresh diced tomatoes with fresh basil crushed into the mixture- delicious.
Wow! This recipe is a home run. Easy, yummy, and even taste great a few days later...just zap in the microwave for a few seconds to warm up and enjoy. That is, if you have any left. They get gobbled up. (I hid a few in the fridge for later, LOL).
