Stuffed deli loaf

  • serves 2
  • Easy

Great for sharing on a picnic, this ciabatta loaf is stuffed with Italian mozzarella, basil, peppers and salami.



  • small ciabatta or loaf of crusty bread 1, flattish one (big enough for 2 to share)
  • olive oil
  • red wine vinegar 2 tsp
  • garlic ½ clove, crushed
  • rocket a handful
  • mozzarella 1 ball, sliced
  • red onion ½ small, sliced
  • red peppers from a jar halved
  • salami 6 slices


  • Step 1

    Slice the loaf in half horizontally. Pull out some of the bread if really thick (freeze to use as breadcrumbs later). Mix 2 tbsp olive oil, the vinegar and the garlic, and brush both sides of the bread. Layer up the remaining ingredients one by one, seasoning as you go. Wrap in greaseproof paper or foil, weight down a little and leave for 20 minutes. Slice in 2 or 4 to serve.
