My DH reminded me about this recipe. It's been a long time since I've made it. It will be on the 'Nascar' menu next week end!!

Excellent! I used mozzarella only (all we had) and also left out the chopped tomato and it was still super good. It oozed a little out of one spot of the loaf, but did not affect the flavor! Sliced up nicely, with all the filling staying neatly "glued" to the bread with the cheese. We used spicy sausage. Will make this treat again!
