  1. Slice French bread in half lengthwise and scoop out the inside of the loaf. Set aside. In a large skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Saute shrimp, onions, celery, bell peppers and garlic 15 minutes. Blend in dry mustard and mayonnaise. Add cheeses and blend until melted.

Cut bread into slices and serve hot.
I got this recipe out of one of my cookbooks titled "The Encyclopedia of Cajun & Creole Cuisine" by Chef John D. Folse, CEC, AAC. My family loves it. This delicious shrimp and chees mixture becomes a delightful appetizer when baked inside a loaf of French bread. You can try a variation of this recip by substituting the shrimp with crawfish.
