Theme : One Category - Bread Sandwiches
Sub Theme - Sandwiches with a Twist
Cooking Carnival moves on to yet another week.
This week I am making a variety of different sandwiches but with a slight twist. I have tried not to make the traditional sandwiches.For the first day of this week it is a Lava Loaf .
This is made from a loaf which has been cut into a thick chunk. Getting a loaf here was a task for me , the bakery guys said they need to be told in advance. Normally the bread is always sliced. This year for Fathers Day we went to Mumbai to wish our uncle, and it was just for a couple of hours. We went for lunch with the family and had just about an hour before we could take our flight back. I quickly went to Natures Basket and picked up couple of breads. All different kind of breads , to present you guys with a different variety of sandwiches. I picked up some fresh herbs too, which are a rare sight here in Ahmadabad. So this bread is a special bread from Mumbai!
Let me tell you about this sandwich.
It was on FB that my DIL saw a video, where a loaf was filled with various meats and eggs and baked. She suggested me to try the vegetarian version. My son came up with the option of pink sauce , and I knew I would add corn and capsicum to it. So the vegetarian version evolved and I made this loaf. After slicing the loaf the sauce oozed out and it reminded me of the Lava Cake, hence I named it Lava Loaf Sandwich.
Lava Loaf Sandwich
One bread loaf, cut into a 5" chunks ( I made two of these sandwiches )
Save rest of the bread for some other sandwich
Shredded mozzarella cheese
1 cup pink sauce
2 tbsp onion, finely chopped
2 tbsp red capsicum, finely chopped
2 tbsp green capsicum finely chopped
4 tbsp corn kernels, boiled
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
Salt to taste
Cut the loaf into 5" chunks.
Leaving about 1/2" from all sides scoop out the bread from the loaf, thus making a deep depression.
Apply butter lavishly inside this depression.
Fill it up with the prepared stuffing.
Sprinkle shredded Mozzarella cheese and bake in a preheated oven till cheese melts.
Cut into two and you will get a wonderful lava of the stuffing oozing out.
