How To Make Italian Cheesy Bread Bake


Salami, provolone cheese, and tart peppers wrapped up in a cheesy dough – what more could you ask for? This Italian cheesy bread bake is a cinch to make and perfect to serve for lunch with a spinach salad. It’s very filling, and is great to pack for lunches too.

To keep things simply we microwaved the cheese to melt it but if you prefer you can also try the double-boiler method (as demonstrated in the Ultimate Cheeseburger Loaf recipe) or the stovetop method (as demonstrated in the Feta and Bacon Bites recipe.)

Yields 4 servings of Italian Cheesy Bread Bake

The Preparation

1 ¼ cups Monterey jack cheese, shredded

4 tablespoons coconut flour

3 tablespoons flax seed meal

1 large egg

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

2 ounces Italian dry salami

2 ounces provolone cheese

1 ounce spinach, fresh

¼ cup deli sliced mild pepper rings

1 teaspoon olive oil

1 large egg yolk

The Execution

1. Preheat your oven to 400°F. Combine the coconut flour, flax seed meal, and seasoning together in a small bowl. In a larger mixing bowl, melt the Monterey jack cheese in a microwave for about a minute or until the shreds are fully melted together.

2. Let the melted cheese stand for about a minute then add the whole egg. Combine the egg and cheese together.

3. Add the dry mix to the cheese and mix together until the cheese takes up all of the flours.

4. Spread out a piece of parchment paper then turn the cheese dough out on top of it. Place another sheet of paper on top then use a rolling pin to spread out. You want it to be longer on one side, and wide enough for the fillings and the braid on the other.

5. Lay out the salami and cheese.

6. Tear up the spinach leaves then set those on top. Spread out the mild pepper rings, then drizzle the teaspoon of olive oil on top.

7. Use a knife or pizza cutter to cut the sides of the dough into diagonal strips. Fold up the ends of the dough, then braid the strips over the top.

8. Whisk up an egg yolk then brush it across the top. Bake for 15-20 minutes until the braid is golden brown.

9. Slice into 4 pieces and enjoy.
