Savory Stuffed Loaf

Olive oil
½ cup chopped onion (recipe states it needs to be coarse)
2 cloves garlic, chopped (recipe says finely)
½ chopped tomatoes (recipe says coarse)
10 oz froz spinach, thawed/drained
¼ tsp black pepper
1 cup cheddar cheese
¼ cup black olives, sliced
1 frozen bread dough

1 large egg yolk
1tbsp water

2 tbsp bread crumbs
1 tbsp parmesan
1. heat onion and garlic in olive oil for ~5mins, add tomatoes, spinach and pepper and continue to heat for ~1 min, add cheese and olives, stir and set aside to cool
2. on a greased baking sheet roll out the dough to 12×10 dimensions (it helps if you hold one side while rolling away from you – I found frozen bread dough hard to work with)
3. spread your mixed ingredients down the center of your dough and then pull one of your sides over the fillings, then the next side
4. pinch/seal your layered pieces of bread together
5. using your egg yolk and water mix together and lightly coat the loaf, sprinkle with the mixture of bread crumbs and parmesan cheese
6. let sit covered for 30 mins (make sure your cover won’t stick – hence have oil spread on it)
7. place in 350 oven for 30mins
8. serve (the recipe says to cool on a wire rack… but I prefer this meal hot and fresh from the oven – while it sits you can set the table, serve drinks, etc… it will be ready when you are)

    well personally i would like fresh spinach compared to frozen…how did the family like it? did you defrost the frozen dough?

    When I said I was curious to see the inside of the loaf, I meant when it was ready to serve. Presumably it wasn’t eaten whole. 🙂

    I wasn’t suggesting you buy a colonoscopy camera, I’m probably just encouraging you to be as weird as the rest of us that delay the meal for a photo-shoot. 🙂

      Oh I did, I post pics of the “served” meals in the “review” section for the week. You think I should post a “on the plate” pic with the recipe as well? I don’t let anyone eat until we bust out the camera! hahaha… I am weird like the rest of you 😉
      I thought you meant the innards – like taking pictures while I was cooking. I did that… but like I said my hubby said I’d scare people away from this recipe with the “inside” pic. hahaha

      oh and the WHOLE loaf did get eaten… hubby came home from work, said it smelt good and went to town!! no leftovers, so I can’t comment on how leftovers from the microwave turn out
