Stuffed Appetizer Bread

February 16, 2015

For New Year’s I made several appetizers including this one. It was quite easy and there are lots of different variations of ingredients to stuff your bread with. I made one loaf with green olives and provolone and another with prosciutto and provolone.  The recipe below is for one loaf.

Olive and Cheese Bread



1 tablespoon Butter, melted
1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh garlic
1 (1-pound) loaf frozen bread dough, thawed or refrigerated dough like Pillsbury
1/4 pound thinly sliced prosciutto or deli salami
6 (1-ounce) slices Provolone Cheese, cut into strips
1/4 cup sliced stuffed green olives
2 green onions, sliced
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon water
Poppy seed, if desired

1) Stir together butter and garlic in bowl. Roll out bread dough on lightly floured surface to 12-inch square. Place on lightly greased baking sheet; brush with butter mixture.

2) Layer meat, cheese, olives and onions in 3-inch strip down center of dough to within 1/2-inch of top and bottom, leaving 4 1/2 inches of dough on each side of filling.

3) Cut twelve 3-inch long strips, 1-inch apart, along both sides of filling. Fold strips across filling at an angle, alternating sides to give a criss-cross effect. Pinch dough at bottom and top to seal.

4) Cover; let rise in warm place 30-45 minutes or until almost double in size. If you are using a refrigerated dough, rising will not likely be required. Read the instructions on the container. Combine egg and water in bowl; brush over braid. Sprinkle with poppy seed, if desired.

5) Heat oven to 350°F. Bake 25-35 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from baking sheet; cool 10 minutes. Cut into slices.
