Stuffed Bread

This is the meal you bring out when you really need to Feed the Fam.

It’s a hearty meal for big eaters. It’s great to serve as an appetizer for a big crowd or as a casual meal on game day!

Stuffed Bread is budget friendly, filling and simple!

When my kids were both still in diapers I would call my Aunt June for simple family recipes that were affordable. She always had the best recipes and I still use a bunch of them. This is one she suggested and it is still one of my family favorites.

I always make this with a quick crushed tomato sauce.  You can use any sauce of your choice, but this one is super easy and delicious.
