LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLE!!!!
If you know what I’m talking about then I’m sure that you also know those in the living room all of Sunday afternoon, Sunday night, Monday night and Thursday night.
But what is football without football food?! I’m always looking for something a little creative. Something a little different instead of the same ol’ football food that we always have.
I will be honest with you, this recipe is definitely something unique, but it’s not something that is very quick. The grinder essentially is stuffed bread. But how do you stuff bread? Oh yes, you have to hollow it out. And while it doesn’t take a great amount of time, if you are making these for any more than 2 people it does take a little bit of time to hollow out the bread.
Well, this is at least from my experience. I am not a quick bread hollower. (Yes, it’s my own made up word) But when you bite into it after it’s baked in the over, after your teeth bite through the crispy exterior, and your mouth reaches the savory soft center and the flavors mix together in your mouth, there is no doubt that the little extra work was completely worth it. Plus you’ll be a hit with who ever you make these for because they will likely be something that they have never quite have before. So go ahead, do the extra work, hollow out that bread, stuff it with savory goodness and enjoy! I’d love to hear how you like them! Happy cooking!
