Neither printed it in it’s entirety.
"This pretty swirled sandwich loaf from (Qui) of Gainesville, Florida is fast, easy and versatile.
'Fill it with anything your family likes,' she suggests. 'Try sliced pepperoni and provolone cheese, or anchovies and ripe olives if you're feeling adventurous.'"
What was left out? Additional filling suggestions. For pasta dishes or chinese, just green onions, minced. OR parmesan and white pepper…OR try cooked and well drained sausage, mushrooms and onions - OR your favorite sausage and pepper recipe leftovers, just thinly slice the sausage, add back to peppers, heat and drain well…OR pepperoni and...the fillings are endless….
The French loaf dough is actually a thin flat sheet of bread dough that has been rolled up…just find the end and unroll it. You’ll have a flat sheet about the size of your cookie sheet. And…if you like a soft crust (I do on these) - as soon as it comes out of the oven, brush it all over, top and bottom, with melted butter…AND…lastly, instead of the pre-packaged dough, you can use your own, or store bought pizza or bread dough - just roll it to fit a cookie sheet - about 1/4"-1/3" thick.
