It’s time to get creative with the old “bread bowl” idea. Don’t get me wrong, I love bread bowls, but it’s high time to make them even easier to make. I’m sure it goes without saying, but this is a great app for a dinner or cocktail party. I always tend to wait to the last minute to get ready for a party and this honestly has saved me many times.
- 1 loaf of sourdough bread
- 1 cup of pesto sauce (I used the instant powder kind. Works just as well.)
- 1 cup of mozzarella
- Sprinkle of oregano all over
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Score the bread (ie, don’t cut it all the way through) horizontally and vertically to get your “pull apart” pieces. Pour the pesto sauce in to the crevices and use a spatula to smother it in there. Trust me, you want it on every piece! Next, stuff the mozzarella in each crevice and sprinkle on the oregano. Bake for 15 minutes.
Last step – go to town on it! You won’t be able to restrain yourself. But don’t worry, we don’t judge.
