This is out of my Summer Time Cookbook...great for a BBQ...or it can be cook in a 375° oven for about 25 minutes...you can wrap and freeze the uncooked loaf up to three months; thaw at room temperature before cooking.
- 1 loaf French bread or 1 loaf sourdough bread
- 1⁄2 cup butter (room temperature)
- 4 ounces salami, finely chopped
- 1⁄4 cup parmesan cheese, grated
- 3 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
- Prepare salami butter by combining soften butter with salami, cheese and basil, set aside.
- Cut bread crosswise at 1/2-in intervals, cutting nearly all the way through; spread slices with two-thirds of the butter.
- Cut diagonally across loaf at 1/2-in intervals, cutting nearly all the way through, spread slices with remaining butter.
- Wrap loaf in foil, barbecue 15 minutes, open foil, barbecue further 10 minutes, serve.
In the end this tasted great I used 4 ounces of butter but I felt 4 ounces of salami; I used hot Hungarian so only used 2 ounces which added a lovely spicy flavour and it wasn't till I went to put it in the oven (barbie was not an option for me) that I realized I had not put in the basil which could have made a difference but as it was still delicious, I used a small Pane Di Casa sour dough bread and for 4 of us as a side was adequate. Still have some butter left over (in the freezer) and will add basil to it and make this again.
