Drunken Cheesy Bread

OK how could this NOT be good? And there's so many ways to build on it by switching up the wines and cheeses. Use prosciutto instead of ham. Add vegetables.

The recipe is from Real Simple.

Butter for the pan
1/2 baguette, cut into 2-inch slices
1/2 small yellow onion, thinly sliced
1/8 pound thinly sliced cooked ham
3/4 cup white wine(I used Pinot Grigio)
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 1/2 cups (6 ounces) grated Gruyère(I used an Italian blend)

Heat oven to 400° F.

Place the bread in a buttered ovenproof skillet, a 9-inch square baking dish, or a casserole. Scatter the onion and ham over the bread. Pour the wine over the onion and ham and sprinkle with the pepper and Gruyère. Bake until the cheese has melted and begun to brown at the edges, about 20 minutes. Spoon onto individual plates.

Tip: If you don't have Gruyère, you can substitute Swiss, Monterey Jack, fontina, or white Cheddar.

Yield: Makes 4 to 6 servings

Hi Kristi
This Drunken Cheesey Bread looks so darn good. I can not wait to try it. I have a feeling buying just the right ham is a big key here! Although it would be fun to try it many different ways!

Thanks, Valerie

This dish does look very good. What a great combination of ham, cheese, wine atop a baguette.
Sounds delicious. I am going to have to try this.
