Featured Recipe   
Bacon, Green Onion and Swiss Rye Bread

This is delicious simplicity. With a salad you could make it a midnight snack, maybe even a lite dinner. But its main function is an appetizer or classic finger food.

This is what you will need:

½ pound bacon

3 green onions

4 ounces shredded Swiss cheese

2-3 tablespoons mayonnaise, or to taste

20 party rye bread slices

Here is what you do.

Dice the bacon and fry it till it is nice and crispsy.

While the bacon is crisping up wash and slice the green onions. Place the green onions in a bowl.

When the bacon is crisp drain the grease. Add the bacon to the bowl with the green onions. Save all that yummy grease for another use.

Then add the cheese, and mayonnaise to the bowl. Mix well.

Place the bread slices on a baking sheet. You may have to broil in two batches depending on the size of your baking sheet and/or broiler.

Place about a half a tablespoon of the mixture on each piece of rye bread and spread out over the bread.

Place under a broiler about 2-3 minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Be careful and watch carefully. Some broilers are super hot. Mine were ready in about 2 minutes.

Done. Fresh out of the oven. Don’t burn your fingers grabbing them off the baking sheet. But do grab away. I’ll make another batch right now!

Serve hot.

Makes about 20 appetizers. Recipe can be doubled or tripled.

Bon appétit!!!

Quote of the Day

The Pilgrims made seven times more graves than huts.  No Americans have been more impoverished than these who, nevertheless, set aside a day of thanksgiving.
