Saturday Sandwich 74: Picnic Loaf

This one looks like a good one, an entire loaf of bread stuffed with meat, cheese and vegetables all ready to take on a picnic. We're not actually going on a picnic but we're eating this picnic loaf anyway :o

Ingredients: loaf of bread, pesto, salami, mozzarella, peppers, courgette, sun-dried tomatoes, oil and garlic

Slice up the peppers and courgette. Put them in a bowl with a teaspoon of minced garlic and a slug of oil. I feel strongly that anything to do with food shouldn't be called a slug.

 Hollow out the loaf of bread to give you a cavity for stuffing food into it.

 Put a layer of pesto on the bottom of the loaf and then start layering up the other things.

 Saute the vegetables until soft and then add them to the loaf. Finish layering and replace the top.

Wrap the loaf in clingfilm and put your handy kitchen skull on the top to press it down. Leave for an hour or so at room temperature.

I was pleased to make this sandwich because I like all the ingredients. Usually these sandwiches with lots of ingredients have something like olives or capers in them. I really liked the taste of the peppers with the mozzarella. It was a hard sandwich to eat, the top wasn't secure and kept coming off. It's a nice way to eat all the food groups at once though. JD wasn't keen on it being room temperature and said it'd be better cold or hot even.
