Antipasto Bread

"Whenever I make this recipe at my home or to bring to parties, at least 3 or 4 people ask for the recipe. It seems involved, but it's easy and so worth it. Our friend call it "the" appetizer."

  1. I have made this several times for get togethers and it goes in a flash. I am always asked for the recipe.
  2. I served this to a group of twentysomethings last night, and it went over really well! With lots of hungry young guys coming, and a pretty big time lag between their arrival and dinner, I needed something a littler heavier than the usual appetizer. It turned out to be a perfect choice in that respect. Thinking that it might be a little bland, I added some chopped hot banana peppers along with the sweet peppers to half the dish. Surprisingly, almost everyone noticed and commented on how much they liked the extra 'zing' in some slices. Next time, I think I'll sprinkle a little diced banana pepper on each layer. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. It's going to be a staple during football season!
  3. I made this recipe for a party and have been asked to make it 3 times since then. It has been such a great hit at our many baseball party gatherings. Thanks so much
