Layers of warm yumminess in a bread bowl

Keep dinner simple! This recipe lets the kiddos pack their favorite meats and cheeses into a bread bowl and bake it up for a warm winter meal.


  • 1 large, unsliced sourdough round (or boule)

  • 1/2 lb. honey-roasted deli turkey, sliced

  • 1/2 lb. smoked deli ham, sliced

  • 1/4 lb. salami, thinly sliced

  • 6 strips thick-sliced bacon, cooked

  • 6 thin slices sharp cheddar cheese

  • 6 thin slices baby Swiss cheese

  • 6 thin slices provolone cheese

How To

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 
  2. Make a bread bowl:

  3. • Use a sharp knife, at a shallow angle, to cut around the top of the bread loaf about 1/2 inch from the top of the bread and remove. Put aside for use later.
    • Pull out all the bread from the inside of the bread loaf in medium to large pieces until the loaf is nearly just a shell or bowl.

  4. Layer the ingredients in the bread bowl. Begin by laying half of the sliced turkey flat in the bottom of the bread bowl, followed by three slices of provolone cheese, half of the sliced ham, three slices of Swiss cheese, half of the sliced salami and three slices of cheddar cheese.
  5. Using the remaining meat and cheese to make a second layer in the same order.
  6. Press down firmly on the ingredients.
  7. Place the bread top on top of the cheese.
  8. Bake for about 25-30 minutes or until center is hot.
  9. Slice into wedges (like you would a pie) to make individual servings.
  10. Make sure to check out our Hints for this recipe in the column at right.



  • Try filling your bread bowl with these variations:
  • — slow roasted beef with peppers and onions or pulled barbecue pork
    — roasted vegetables drizzled with balsamic vinegar and layered with Asiago cheese

  • Use the bread chunks you removed in the beginning to make croutons for your soups or use as a side for spinach artichoke dip. Toss them with some olive oil or melted butter and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes or until browned.
