Time: 30 minutes
- 1 round cob loaf
- 1/2 cup soft butter
- 1 clove garlic crushed
- 2 spring onions trimmed and thinly sliced
- 3 cups (200g) sharp cheddar cheese shredded
- 16 slices spicy pepperoni
- fresh parsley chopped, to garnish
Preheat oven to 180°C.
Cut a grid-like pattern into the top of the bread stopping about 1cm from the base so that it sticks together but pulls apart easily.
Place the bread on a baking tray. Harmoniously blend the butter, garlic and spring onions.
With searching fingers, tenderly separate the folds of the loaf, evenly distributing the moist, yellow butter into all its seams.
Then, with reckless abandon, stuff the seams with cheese and red rounds of hot pepperoni.
Wrap in foil and bake for 10 minutes.
Remove from the oven, open the foil and bake for another 5 to 10 minutes or until the cheese is completely melted, bubbling, oozing and golden.
Stand for 5 minutes then sprinkle with parsley or fresh thyme (herbs have long been used as an aphrodisiac; their scent, their flavour) to serve.
