    Hot Cream Cheese Sandwiches

    1 lb cream cheese at room temperature
    3 eggs, lightly beaten
    1/4 cup finely chopped chives or scallions (spring onions)
    1 loaf French bread (baguette)

    Suggested fillings:
    Thinly sliced cooked ham
    Thinly sliced smoked salmon
    Thinly sliced cooked turkey
    Canned tuna, drained and mixed with finely chopped
    green bell pepper
    Chopped raw vegetables
    Cooked shrimp or crab meat

    Combine the cream cheese, eggs, and chopped chives in a bowl and beat with a
    wooden spoon until thoroughly combined. Cut the loaf of bread in half lengthwise
    and scoop out some of the soft interior, forming a pair of shallow shells. Fill
    the bread with a filling of your choice and spread the cream cheese mixture in a
    thick layer on top of both halves of the loaf. Place on a baking sheet and bake
    in a preheated 450 degree oven until the topping is set and lightly browned,
    15 minutes. Cut into individual portions and serve immediately. Serves 6 to 8.
