1 French bread baguette (1 pound), cut into 36 slices
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
2/3 cup mayonnaise
1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted
6 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
1 green onion, chopped
Additional toasted almonds, optional
1. Place bread slices on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 400℉ for 8-9 minutes or until lightly browned. **
2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine the cheese, mayonnaise, almonds, bacon, onion and salt. Spread over bread. Bake for 7-8 minutes or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with additional almonds if desired. Serve warm.
Yield: 3 dozen.
**These are very crusty. If you want them a little softer don't prebake the bread. Just bake after putting on the cheese mixture. This is also good on regular french bread slices or baked potatoes etc.
