Ingredients

1 loaf unsliced french fread (about 16 inches long)
1/4 cup mayonnaise
2 Teaspoons dried parsley flakes
2 Teaspoons mustard
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
8 slices of Cheese
8 slices of cooked ham
1. On a cutting board, use a bread knife to make 15 cuts
across the french bread loaf. Make sure the cuts are about an inch apart.
Be careful not to cut through the bottom crust. Cut through
the loaf and stop cutting just before you get to the bottom crust.
Making 15 cuts divides the bread loaf into 16 equal slices.

2. Measure the mayo, parsley flakes, mustard, and onion powder
Put the ingredients into a small mixing bowl. Stir together with a spoon.
Use a metal spatula or butter knife to evenly spread the mayo
mixture between every other opening in the bread loaf.

3.Turn oven on to 375 degrees. Place One cheese slice on top
of each piece of sliced ham. Fold two opposite corners to make a
triangle. Put the triangles in one of the openings in the bread
that has been the mayo spread mixture.
Repeat with rest of triangles.

4. Press sandwhich loaf together and wrap in tin foil.
Put loaf onto a cookie sheet, and put in the hot oven.
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or till hot. Turn off oven when done.
Use hot pads to remove cookie sheet from oven. Make sure they are dry,
because wet hot pads will not protect you from the heat.

To serve the sandwhich loaf, carefully remove the tin foil.
Use the narrow metal spatula to cut through the bottom crusts of the
UNFILLED openings in the bread loaf. This seperates the loaf into
8 individual sandwhichs. Makes 8 sandwhiches.
