    Actually a very good garlic type recipe.

    1 large loaf Cuban/French bread ( the rounder/larger the better, if I have time I make my own, but that's another recipe)
    Coupla jarred roasted red peppers (freshly roasted works, too) - diced.
    3 cloves garlic (improvise) - diced.
    Pepperoni to taste - diced
    Mushrooms to taste - dices/sliced.
    Mozzarella (enough to make it gooey, you're call)
    Grated Romano - fresh (I've also used Asiago /parmesan/what ever was on hand)
    Sprinkles of basil, oregano, parsley, etc
    Butter (level suited to your cholesterol tolerances) I've also used Olive oil if I had to.

    Slice bread in half length wise.
    Scoop out some of the interior bread (your going to have to to fit all of this stuff in the loaf)
    Layer ingredients & mush the top down.
    Slice the loaf into serving slices & roll & seal in foil.
    Grill over semi hot coals 10 - 15 minutes.

    Serve with dunking sauce ( your choice)

    I've also done this with slicing the bread, drizzling with olive oil, preassembling on a foil lined cookie sheet, then transferring to the grill (cover closed, and check it, you don't want flair ups & burn the bread) just to the point where everything gets melted cheesey gooey.

    Goes great with wings :)

    Those are nice ones. I had one of the terra cotta ones, broke the sucker. Maybe Adios Pantaloons can make some to sell us?

    I love making them. Here's a couple (these are all sold- I'm not advertising/ selling these here- to be clear... just showing off a little)

    Some times I use a bb gun to make the holes while it's still wet. The holes look like stop-motion CSI shots.

    Those are cool, AP.

    It's always amazed me how much we Americans as a society have this "thing" about not eating insects but when you take a good look at a live shrimp, it looks as much like a bug as anything that I can think of and we eat tons and tons of them. Not trying to diss the shrimp, though, as I love 'em.;)

    I was weened on blue crabs. We even call the little ones, "spiders". Love shrimp, too. But I will be darned if I am going to eat a cicada, ant, or any other bug.
