    Stacky5's Note:

    My Mom used to make these for us during tomato season in the summertime (way back in the 70's). Even though the combination of ingredients sounds weird, the flavors really blend well into an awesome taste sensation that I am totally addicted to, even after all these years. I LOVE this stuff! (Unbelievably quick and easy, too.) :)

    1. 1
      Toast bread slices, and put them on an ungreased baking sheet.

      Spread 1 Tbsp mayonnaise on each toasted piece of bread.
    3. 3

      I am the only one in my family who eats Braunschweiger since my Daddy passed away. I usually get some Boars Head at the Deli counter & only buy a few slices when I am in the mood for it. I had never tried it this way, and must say it was yummy. Even my picky DH who won't eat Braunschwieger said it looked good. The only change I made was to substitue Sharp Cheddar for the Velvetta. Thanks for posting.

      We tried this with sourdough bread and shredded cheese, and really liked it! I don't know why I never thought of doing this before.
