February 4, 2018

Check out this yummy cob loaf recipe with a twist! Super easy to make, looks appetising and perfect for a party or an evening with friends. I’ve had a few questions about this after I posted it on Instagram so here is my recipe. Let me know how it goes!

  • 1 cob loaf
  • 3 cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 5 stuffed green olives, sliced
  • 100g pepperoni salami, sliced or cut into thin strips
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 red capsicum, finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 300g sour cream
  • 320g (4 cups) coarsely grated tasty cheese
Step 1

Preheat oven to 180°C/160°C fan forced. Cut the top third from the cob loaf. Scoop out the bread inside (in one piece if possible), leaving a 2cm thick wall. Set the top and inside bread aside.

Step 2

Place the loaf on a baking tray and spray with oil. Bake for 20 minutes or until crisp. Slice the reserved top and inside of the cob and place on a tray along with the tomato, olive and 20g of the peperoni. Spray with oil. Bake for 5-10 minutes or until the bread is crisp.

Step 3

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium heat and add the onion, garlic, capsicum and remaining pepperoni. Cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes or until soft. Add the tomato paste, sour cream and cheese and stir until melted.

Step 4

Fill the loaf with the cheese mixture. Top with the roasted tomato, olive and pepperoni. Sprinkle with parsley and serve with the bread.
