stuffed bread

Start with a good loaf of bread, almost any shape or style will work. 











For a medium sized dinner loaf:  
Slice the loaf down to the bottom crust making sure not to cut all the way through and set aside.  In a medium skillet heat good quality olive oil, add 1/2 cup chopped onions, 2 tbsp of minced garlic, & a dash of course black pepper.  Cook until the garlic and onions brown, remove from head and add 1 cup chopped baby spinach and 2 cups shredded parmesan cheese.  Add generous amounts the spinach-cheese mixture between the slices of bread.  Wrap loosely in tinfoil, bake on high heat until the cheese has melted. Serve hot.

For a medium dessert loaf:          
Slice the loaf down to the bottom crust making sure not to cut all the way through and set aside.  In a medium sauce pan over medium/low heat add 1/2 cup butter, 1 cup thinly sliced and chopped apple, 1/2 brown sugar, and a tbsp of cinnamon.  Simmer until apples are soft but be careful not to burn the butter.  Remove from heat adding 1 cup of softened cream cheese.  Add generous amounts the apple-cream cheese mixture between the slices of bread.  Brush the top with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon & sugar.  Wrap loosely in tinfoil, bake on high heat until the bread is warmed all the way through. Serve hot.
