Mushroom Bread Appetizer

My friend Kathy brought this to one of our Wednesday Wine Night events and I hadn’t even swallowed my first bite before I was screaming for the recipe.

It’s basically just bread that’s been scored and then mushrooms and Swiss cheese are stuffed in the crevices. Oh…and there’s lots of butter involved.

Sprinkle with some poppy seeds and bake and you’ve got yourself an oozy-gooey cheesy pull-apart mushroom bread appetizer. I took this to a party at friend Karen’s house for a cookbook celebration and had several requests for the recipe. And thanks to Kirsten for being my hand model.

    Yeah- so happy to have this recipe! This will make an appearance at my house sometime over the holidays this year. I’d better make it when I have company with whom to share it or else I’d eat the whole thing. It was tasty!

      I didn’t use Vienna bread, but do think I’ve seen it. I used a round loaf of Sour Dough from Whole Foods. I thought the bottom of the bread got a little hard in the baking process, so thinking a softer crusted bread is a must.

    butter – yea! never saw anything like this, and if you screamed at first bite, I know it is a knock-out… perfect for football watching
