We got him to the children's hospital where we sat and sat. Poor kid. His arm swooped down in the center. It reminded me of playing with Silly Putty as a child. Remember how you could pull it apart and it would stretch, but the center would give way to gravity and sag down? That's what his forearm looked like. He was a trooper, and after a few hours, we were starving, so my husband's aunt, who lived very close to the hospital, brought us up these Swiss cheese toast slices. Honestly, had I not been so hungry, I might not have tried them, but I am oh so glad I did.
On occasion, after that night, my husband would make this toast for us, so this past summer, I asked him to teach me how. And, yes, they taste just as yummy even when you aren't starving from sitting in the ER for hours on end.
It looks yummy and simple, right? It is, and here is all you have to do to make it...
6 large slices of sourdough bread
1 1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
1/2 tsp. minced garlic
3 Tbsp. mayonnaise
4 tsp. shredded (or finely chopped) onion
dash Worcestershire sauce
salt and pepper to taste
Mix all the ingredients in a medium sized bowl and spread over the sliced bread. Place on a baking sheet and broil for 10 minutes or until the cheese starts to bubble a little.
Like my broccoli sunflower seed salad that I love even though I don't care for broccoli, this recipe is based on another ingredient I normally don't like; however, something about mixing the Swiss cheese with all these other ingredients makes it taste delicious. I promise you that whether you are a Swiss cheese fan or not, you will love this recipe! We are making it tonight with shrimp bisque. YUM!!!
