Shareable Stuffed Loaf Recipe

Added 23 Jul 2015
This is the perfect picnic idea for a family outing - fill this loaf with all your family favourite fillers and grab a picnic blanket!


  • 1 medium/large fresh loaf of bread
  • 2 tbsp pesto
  • 1 red pepper
  • 1 yellow pepper
  • 5 slices parma/wafer ham
  • 200g cheddar cheese
  • 50g tomatoes (chopped)
  • 1 little gem lettuce
  • Small handful of fresh basil (chopped)


  1. Cut the lid off the loaf and pull out all of the dough in the middle, leaving a good crust so that it will stay crisp once the loaf is filled.
  2. Combine the pesto and mayonnaise, then spread it so that the inside of the entire loaf is covered, including the lid.
  3. Layer chopped peppers, ham, cheddar cheese, chopped tomatoes, and little gem lettuce, then dot basil leaves throughout.
  4. Replace the lid and cut into wedges to serve!
Alternatively, why not recreate with your favourite sandwich fillers, the options are endless! You can also make this in advance of your picnic, just tightly wrap it and store in the fridge for 2 days - it couldn't be more simple!
