This is a rustic rye loaf hollowed out and refilled with a mixture of ricotta, cream cheese, chives, and vegetables. Original recipe calls for 150 grams of bacon bits for the filling, I omitted it for the sake of eating healthy and just used more potatoes and ricotta instead.
Recipe adapted from Essen und Trinken

  • 150 g Floury potatoes, such as Russet
  • 2 Eggs, hard boiled
  • 1 bunch Chives
  • 1 Yellow bell pepper
  • 1 Red bell pepper
  • 100 g Pickled gherkin
  • 380 g Ricotta
  • 100 g Cream cheese
  • Salt and freshly mulled black pepper
  • 1 / 750 g Rustic rye loaf from the bakery

http://schneiderchen.de | © 2011 | http://angiesrecipes.blogspot.com


  1. Cook the potatoes in salted water for 20 minutes until fork tender. Drain. Peel the potatoes while still warm, and push through a passatutto or potato ricer.
  2. Hard boil the eggs for about 8 minutes. Drain, cover with cold water and leave to cool. Cut the chives into rings with scissors. Deseed the sweet bell peppers and finely dice. Cut the gherkin into fine dices. Peel the eggs and roughly chop them.
  3. Combine the chive rings, diced bell peppers, gherkin, eggs, ricotta and cream cheese in a large bowl together with mashed potatoes. Season with salt and pepper. Cut an inch off the top of bread loaf, and hollow out center of loaf.
  4. Refill the loaf with the prepared cheese mixture. Store the whole loaf in a paper bag and chill for 2-3 hours until the filling is set. Slice and serve.

Beautiful recipe Angie. I would also omit the bacon, but maybe add in some ham. It is a very adaptable recipe and good looking too. Could stuff a French baquette too.

Gosh Angie, this is a really interesting recipe. And what a super summer dish too. Looks like it slices without mushing together....something I always worry about with stuffed bread. Potatoes in it as well. Love it!

Gina 15/7/11 16:55

What I want to know is how the heck did you hollow out that bread so perfectly. This does sound good, I don't think it needs the bacon. I'm going to have to keep this idea on my short list. Hope you have a great weekend.

Sissi 15/7/11 18:53

Angie, this is one of the most original recipes I have ever seen! I think I would have to fill the bread very quickly, otherwise I would it the stuffing alone ;-)
It looks so beautiful, I bet your friends or family were impressed! Unfortunately I would have difficulties in finding such a wonderful rye bread in Switzerland...

[Reply]
Tes 15/7/11 20:03

Kelly 18/7/11 04:41

Are you kidding me? This is so fantastic! Move over pumpernickel spinach, enter Angie! Ricotta is a great filler - a nice protein rich contrast to the bread and delicious too. I'm curious whether the filling falls out when you slice the bread, but it doesn't appear to. This is really great!
