This loaf went over huge at the Superbowl party today. Before I could get it onto a nice wooden board for a better photo, it had already been picked at! I'm also going to try it with cappocola and pepperoncini and a bit of Italian seasoning. Great recipe for a party, and easy too! Thanks, Teresa!

Oh My, so Good! I needed to use up some salami I had in the freezer (due to buying too much and froze it to prevent it from going bad). I made it in the oven wrapped well in aluminum foil. I like salami, but this sandwich brought the salami to a whole other level. The fresh basil is a must, so anyone wanting to make it, please don't leave it out. All the flavor marks were checked-off and we couldn't get our hands off of these. Perfect for a game day, but any day will do. Thank you, Teresa, for sharing. Made it for What's On the Menu and Pick Me tag games.

I made the full amount of spread and then decided to only prepare half of a french loaf on the BBQ. My cuts weren't the prettiest, but the bread was delicious! To the leftover spread I added a sprinkle of red pepper flakes and garlic powder before spreading on opened English muffins. I topped those with a tiny bit of grated cheese and then baked in the oven. Served with a salad they made a fab lunch. Thanks for sharing this keeper of a recipe!
