Hot Swiss Ryes

These Hot Swiss Ryes are perfect for game day or a party.  This is because they can be prepared ahead and ready to serve in 15 minutes.  The combination of flavors on top of the party rye bread is delectable, with melted swiss and bacon as the stars.  

Since I first made this, it’s been in our rotation.  It is our quick and easy go-to for a gourmet-tasting treat.  Make a full recipe as they disappear quickly.

If you’re lucky enough to have leftovers, refrigerate the Hot Swiss Ryes in a sealed container.  Then, reheat them in a 350-degree oven for 8-10 minutes.

Make the mixture with the ingredients you prefer.  If you like them creamier, add more mayonnaise.  Do you want more bacon?  Then double it.  If you crave heat, add some hot sauce or cayenne pepper.  Have fun making these into your favorite flavored bites.

Note:  Rubschlager party bread is nonexistent because of a business acquisition. Because of this, I made these with whole-grain German Pumpernickel bread.  I sliced the bread into small squares.  They were outstanding!

Welcome to Foodie de Froid!

If you love real food, take pleasure in eating, and strive for mouth-watering flavor, you have come to the right place.  Here the star of the show IS the food, presenting it in a way that makes it shine.  

Tasting Experiences

We feature many appetizers and individual-sized recipes as a purposeful way to experience and share food.  

Our mouth reacts to flavors in a transitional way.  That first taste creates an exciting experience with the food’s intense flavors, textures, and visual appeal.  Yet after the first few bites, our mouths and minds adjust, and that experience deadens.  

Thus, the tasting experience!  We served 14 consecutive courses at my last tasting party.  Each was purposely selected to bring new flavors, textures, and presentations, creating surprises and wow moments throughout the night.

The Recipes

The recipes are documented with ingredients we love.  Yet my greatest hope is to have you understand why the recipes work and eventually make them into your personal version using your favorite ingredients and presentations.
