Ingredients
  • 1 bread loaf, approximately 600g
  • 300g OKA Artisan smoked, grated or sliced
  • 2 chopped garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon pesto
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
Preparation
  1. Combine oil, chopped garlic, pesto and mustard to make a smooth vinaigrette. Reserve to pour over the top before baking.
  2. With a good bread knife, slice the bread every 1 inch, ¾ of the depth of the bread. Turn the bread 90° and repeat, giving one-inch square bread strips still all attached together as a loaf.
  3. Insert slices or grated cheese between as many bread strips as possible and place on a baking dish. Pour the oil mixture over the top allowing absorption between slices.
  4. Bake at 375 °F for 20 to 25 minutes until the cheese inside the bread is completely melted.
