Beach Bread 

I am NO fan of blue cheese.  At all.  I passed up this recipe quite a few times but then thought, ok, let me try this.  It was such a hit, and even I could not detect the blue cheese in the flavor!  This is a super popular recipe at the beachside restaurants in Florida.  So if you aren’t beachside, you can at least make this and pretend that you are!  It is absolutely delicious.


• French bread baguette

• 6 tablespoons butter, melted

• Liberal shakes of garlic powder

• 1/3 cup blue cheese dressing

• 1/2 cup diced tomatoes

• 2 cups Italian cheese

• Salt & pepper to taste

• Chopped fresh parsley


Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Cut baguette in half lengthwise and spread melted butter on each side. Sprinkle liberally with garlic powder. Spread dressing on each half. Top with tomatoes, cheese, salt, pepper and parsley. Bake 10-12 minutes.
