A picnic loaf is a partially hollowed out loaf of bread, stuffed with a variety of fillings, then chilled and pressed before the main event. Fully portable, wrapped tightly in cling film, it is then sliced into wedges and served when it’s time to eat.
Made-ahead and refrigerated overnight, these Portable Picnic Loaf Sandwiches change overnight into something unique. The flavors of the filling mingle and meld into one another, while the garlicky oil and juices bathe the bread.
