Pull Us Apart

Serves 1 loaf


  • 1 round cob loaf
  • 1/2 cup soft butter
  • 1 clove garlic crushed
  • 2 spring onions trimmed and thinly sliced
  • 3 cups (200g) sharp cheddar cheese shredded
  • 16 slices spicy pepperoni
  • fresh parsley chopped, to garnish


  • Preheat oven to 180°C.
  • Cut a grid-like pattern into the top of the bread stopping about 1cm from the base so that it sticks together but pulls apart easily.
  • Place the bread on a baking tray. Harmoniously blend the butter, garlic and spring onions.
  • With searching fingers, tenderly separate the folds of the loaf, evenly distributing the moist, yellow butter into all its seams.
  • Then, with reckless abandon, stuff the seams with cheese and red rounds of hot pepperoni.
  • Wrap in foil and bake for 10 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven, open the foil and bake for another 5 to 10 minutes or until the cheese is completely melted, bubbling, oozing and golden.
  • Stand for 5 minutes then sprinkle with parsley or fresh thyme (herbs have long been used as an aphrodisiac; their scent, their flavour) to serve.
