Stuffed Baguette – Mmm, cheesy goodness
Here’s another one of those fun, delicious things I made, that I don’t really have a recipe for.
If you want a recipe, check out Baking Obsession for a really cool looking stuffed baguette and a full recipe so you can mimic it exactly.
See? Awesome. And delicious, I’m sure.
I had every intention of getting a cool looking picture of mine, too, but uh, as you can see, half the platter was gone before I could even snap a picture. Yum.
My filling had the same basic idea as Baking Obsession’s and plenty of others, I’m sure: Cream cheese with olives and peppers with some spices to make it delicious. In my case, I used a jar of roasted red peppers and artichokes, I believe, and pulled the green olives from a jar I already had in the fridge. I don’t even remember adding any spices because it tasted good as is, so why tweak it?
And to get it from this:
I used an extra long sundae spoon so the middle got completely filled, working from both ends of the baguette until it was stuffed. If you have the time to wait and aren’t anxious to eat the whole thing immediately, refrigerate it before slicing so it’s more firm instead of sloppy.
No matter how you do it or what you end up adding to your filling, it definitely looks cool and is worth the extra bit of time to make it. Who can resist a nice baguette with a cheesy spread?
