The amazing Stuffed Bread Appetizer

Always on the look out for easy…filling…interesting appetizers. I especially love them it I can make them ahead of time…and serve up when friends arrive! This one is perfect for those occasions….
Is it a telescope? Is it hollow bread? You decide….all it takes is a long serrated knife…and a bit of patience.

Chop up all ingredients….

Mix in with your cheese….

Stuff that bread….don’t be shy….

Wrap up and chill in fridge…until you need to serve it up!
Go ahead…take the ooohhhhh and ahhhhhhssss over how awesome your stuffed bread is!

Makes one 12-inch long baguette; about 24 slices
Ingredients:
•Baguette about 14-inch long

•8 oz cream cheese, at room temperature

•4 oz fresh goat cheese (I used some sharp cheddar instead)

•1 large garlic clove, minced

•½ cup finely chopped red bell pepper (about 1 medium)

•½ cup finely chopped sun dried tomatoes in olive oil

•¼ cup finely chopped Kalamata olives

•2 oz finely chopped spicy salami

•About 2 tbsp minced Italian parsley

•About 1 tsp minced fresh thyme

•Freshly ground black pepper

•Salt to taste (very unlikely since there’re plenty of salty ingredients)

Preparation:
Slice off both ends of the baguette. Using a long thin knife and working from the both ends, hollow the baguette out leaving about ½-inch thick crust all around.
Using an electric mixer beat the cream cheese until smooth and lump-free. Beat in the goat cheese and garlic. Stir in the rest of the ingredients.
Working again from the both ends, fill the baguette with the cheese mixture. Pack the filling tight. I like to use a slender tequila shot glass for pressing the filling in. Wrap the stuffed baguette very well in plastic and refrigerate for at least two hours and up to two days. Right before serving, slice the baguette into ½-inch thick slices and serve. For the most neat looking slices, treat it as a cheesecake – each time slice it with a hot dry knife.
