Sarah’s Picnic Loaf


We’re heading into London to watch the Paralympics equestrian events this afternoon so I decided to make up some food to take rather than have to queue for fast food. I got this recipe from Sarah on the Omlet chicken forum. It’s a bit retro, I remember hollowed out loaf sandwiches when I was a child but haven’t come across them in years.


  • 1 loaf (I used Waitrose stone baked boule)
  • 1-2 tbsps olive oil
  • pack salami
  • pack mozarella sliced
  • 1/2 jar roasted peppers in oil
  • 1/2 jar sun dried peppers


  1. Cut a lid off the loaf and hollow out so there is about 1-2 cms bread remaining (put hollowed out bread aside to make breadcrumbs for the freezer)
  2. Brush lid and inside of loaf with olive oil
  3. Line base with Salami
  4. Add layers of mozarella, peppers, sundried tomatoes and salami, finishing with a layer of salami
  5. Put lid back on and wrap tightly in tin foil
  6. Refrigerate overnight
  7. Cut into wedges and rewrap in tin foil
