Yum. I saw this recipe on The Italian Dish a few months ago, and have been dying to make it. Since it’s not nearly as fun to cook for yourself, I waited until now (that I have an eager-to-taste-test hungry husband) to try it out. I stuck to the recipe for the bread, but I changed the filling from the original. You will learn that I rarely stick to the recipe and always have to “Maya-fy” things.
I was in a hurry to a social yoga bike ride (yes, Austin is awesome), so we didn’t even wait for it to cool before diving in. This resulted in a large burn on my forearm. I failed to have the foresight to see that when I dislodged the bottom of the springform pan, the incredibly hot outer ring would hang on my arm. So, don’t make the same mistake I did. One thing that wasn’t a mistake was making this bread. 2 people, 9″ diameter pan, 5″ high sandwich…and only 1/4 of it left for the next day. Do the math- we ate a lot. Good thing we didn’t invite friends over!
