I found the following recipe whilst having a quick break on Pinterst and I couldn't resist giving it a go. This "Tear and Share" loaf is really easy to make and perfect served with a fresh salad for so many occasions here are just a few I thought of:
1) easy week day meal for 3
2) quick starter if you have impromptu guests round for dinner
3) as part of an anti-pasti shared supper
4) accompaniment to a summer BBQ
Putting it together is really simple too, all you need is
Store brought fresh loaf
Strong cheddar cheese - sliced
Spring onions - finely chopped
Sauce/dressing of your choice
Pre-heat your oven to about 150C fan, take you loaf and cut along it length-ways at equal distance but make sure you don't cut all the way though. Turn the loaf around and do the same again to create a chess board effect. Take your slices of cheese and insert within the gaps in the bread. Next make up a dressing that you want to pour over the bread, I made a simple french dressing with dijon mustard, balsamic vinegar, seasoning and extra virgin olive oil. However you could use what ever takes your fancy, chilli or garlic infused oil for example. Mix your dressing with your chopped spring onions and pour over the loaf. Cook until the cheese has melted to the consistency that you want then tear and share - see soooo easy!
Why not experiment with this, try different types of cheese, chopped sundried tomatoes and olives would also be fantastic. Give it a go and let me know how you all get on, would love to see some photos!
