Stuffed Baguette

Stuffed Baguette
Stuffed Baguette A hollowed baguette obviously makes a perfect shell for any filling you are in the mood for. And once stuffed and properly chilled, it becomes a neat appetizer. This particular one is filled with all my favorite things: goat cheese/cream cheese, sun dried tomatoes, olives, spicy salami, crunchy bell pepper, and fresh herbs. Makes one 12-inch long baguette; about 24 slices Ingredients: Baguette about 14-inch long8 oz cream cheese, at room temperature 4 oz fresh goat cheese 1 large garlic clove, minced ½ cup finely chopped red bell pepper (about 1 medium) ½ cup finely chopped sun dried tomatoes in olive oil¼ 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 an electric mixer beat the cream cheese until smooth and lump-free.

You might ramp up the flavor in a soup or an omelet, nevertheless I just wasn’t thinking about what you might do as the star of the show. But as we enter the “leanest month” – March – for locavores, I gave you a piercing stare as you hung there in your little mesh bags from a peg in my dry cool dark basement where you hold up indefinitely without a peep of complaint. What can I do with you?

Mozzarella Sticks When I told my friends I was planning on making homemade mozzarella sticks for a guy’s weekend out of town the idea was met with a profound lack of enthusiasm.

Pizza Dip Over the last while I have slowly been trying to free up some space in my freezer and I recently came across some pizza sauce that I had left over after making a pizza a while back. As soon as I stumbled upon it I remembered thinking that I had wanted to use it to make a hot cheesy pizza dip when I put it in the freezer.
