Stuffed Italian Bread is a great addition to the table if you are having a nice soup for a weekend lunch or dinner.
Take one Italian loaf of bread ( a crusty loaf essentially!) and cut the bread into cubes with ‘x’ slices without cutting all the way through to the bottom crust.
In a bowl mix 110g melted butter, with the following ingredients:
- 1/8 cup olive oil
- 3 tsp minced onion
- 2-3 cloves crushed garlic
- 1 tbsp dijon mustard
- 1 tbsp poppy seeds
- 3 tsp chopped parsley
- 350g grated tasty cheese
Preheat the oven to a hot 350°c
Put the loaf in the middle of a piece of baking foil – then using a spoon (and your fingers) get the mixture into the bread….this is the messy part of this, but it’s worth it!
Wrap the entire loaf with foil, sealing the sides properly, and bake for 15-20 minutes. Removed from the oven and unwrap.
Bake for another 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted and gooey.
I have made this & eaten it with a glass of red wine (or maybe two glasses), and called it dinner! Now that was naughty so I don’t want you to think I am encouraging you to fall off any diet wagon you may be on…but…just saying, this is yum!
Happy cooking & eating xx
