I went to Mulhouse with my MIL while she was here and left her to pick out some `good looking bread` for us. I was planning on stopping at the little sandwich shop in the mall for lunch, but it is either gone, or closed for renovations. So, we were left with the bread to eat in the car on the way home. I hadn`t realized she`d picked anything other than a plain loaf of bread, so I wasn`t that excited, but wow, was it good. It had the flavors of tomato, black olive, onion and cheese in it. All baked on to the top. It was delicious. I made mine with it baked into the middle as well as my loaf of bread was a bit thicker than the one we had in France.
What you need:
black olives, sliced
1 onion, very thinly sliced
tomato sauce, chunky, creamy, whichever you prefer (I used a blended sun dried tomato)
cheese: I used a blend of gruyere and emmantaler
Result: Really good. Will make this instead of garlic bread for the next few times. My only problem was getting the cheese to stay on top of the bread. It wanted to come off like little cheese cracker pieces. Maybe cross hatch the top of the bread with a knife and stick some cheese down in the bread a little bit.
