Mantraps (by Gourmet Diva)

I thought my first attempt EVER at a blog should include a much-loved, much-requested recipe. As the name implies, mantraps are also a big hit with men....because who wouldn't love baked cheesy goodness on bread? These are very easy to make and make a great appetizer for any get-together.

Cocktail rye rounds or Pepperidge Farm French Bread
1 pound extra sharp cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups Hellmann's Mayonnaise
2 scallions diced with green tips
1/2 clove garlic
1/4 to 1/3 teaspoon garlic juice
1 teaspoon lemon juice
Lawry's seasoned salt

Mix all ingredients and spread on bread. Bake @ 350 for 20 minutes. I often broil for a minute or two at the end so the cheese bubbles.

Optional: Sprinkle with oregano and paprika. Decorate with olives.


  1. What?!?!?! I FINALLY have the recipe for the magnificiant Mantraps in my hands?!?!?!?! Oh, the glory!!!! :-D

  2. I want to call these "Man Eaters" while singing "She's a man eaterrrrrr..." You all know how I feel about singing!
