I live in Germany and needed a quick appetizer to serve friends. I adapted the quantities and temperature for the USA. I hope you like this recipe idea. This appetizer is the bomb (could be cholesterol bomb)! It's a little easier to eat with forks, or enjoy by pulling apart with your fingers.

  • Cut a checkerboard pattern of 1-inch square segments into most of the loaf, leaving the bottom crust intact.

  • Combine Swiss cheese, bacon, butter, and garlic in a bowl. Spoon the mixture between the loaf segments. Stuff the loaf with slices of Raclette. Drizzle olive oil all over the top; sprinkle with salt. Place loaf on a pizza stone.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until crust is golden brown, about 35 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Recipe is for a 2-pound loaf. Adjust ingredients as necessary.
