Use in party dips, Bloody Marys, Beau Monde breads. Marvelous on salads, green vegetables, or pot roast. The French meaning translates to “the world of fashion and society” or “beautiful world”. The combination of spices creates a seasoning salt that represents fine dining and a refined palate. Beau Monde can be used as rub for beef, poultry and fish. Try it as a seasoning for salad dressings and vegetables. This is our Niblack “twist” on an old favorite by Spice Islands.
Ingredients: Salt, Dextrose,Celery, Onion.
Beau Monde Bread Recipe:
1 unsliced loaf or round of sandwich bread (round works well, but rectangular is OK)
8 oz. Swiss cheese slices
½ lb. softened butter (2 sticks)
2 Tbsp. grated onion
1 Tbsp. mustard
½ tsp. Niblack Beautiful World seasoning
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 Tbsp. Niblack poppy seeds
Cut all crusts off bread. Start ½” in from edge and cut three X’s ¾ way through the top of the bread. Be sure not to slice all the way to the sides or the bottom of the loaf. Stuff the X’s with the Swiss cheese. (You may need to hold it together with toothpicks). Blend butter with the remaining 5 ingredient seasonings in food processor or with the back of a wooden spoon (less messy). Cover the loaf completely with the seasoning mixture. Place loaf on aluminum foil rolled loosely ¾ of the way up the sides of the loaf (not touching). Bake for 30 minutes at 350° until crisp. Cut into chunks before serving. Can be prepared days in advance and frozen until ready to bake. This recipe is unique, yet universally delicious!
