DIRECTIONS

  • Thaw the 3 loaves of bread.
  • Brown ground beef and sausage in skillet. Season with salt and pepper. Drain.
  • Add grated parmesan cheese. Mix well with meat.
  • Remove from heat and cool.
  • Add mushrooms, onions, bell pepper, black olives, green olives and mix well.
  • Cut each thawed bread loaf into thirds. Will have 9 sections.
  • Take one section of dough at a time and roll into rectangle on floured surface.
  • Spoon about 1 cup of filling onto rectangle of dough.
  • Top filling with 4 to 6 slices of pepperoni and 2 to 4 slices of mozzarella cheese. Your choice of how much to add.
  • Brush edges of bread dough with egg whites.
  • Fold 2 edges so they are overlapping. Crimp remaining edges with fork to seal.
  • Bake Stuffed Italian Loaves on rimmed, ungreased cookie pan at 350 degrees until browned.
  • Makes 9 loaves which after cooled can be individually wrapped in foil and frozen. Thaw in foil, reheat in 350 oven for about 20 - 25 minutes. I don't recommend reheating in microwave as bread may be tough.
