I watched a video of this being made and instantly fell in love with it. This variation takes advantage of the World's Easist Chili and Easy Artisan Bread Instructables. I used leftover chili and baked the bread flat on a Silpat instead of in a silicone bread baker. Flatter bread is easier to stuff and retains it's stuffing better in the oven.

The result was delicious! I hope you enjoy it.


  • 2 loaves Easy Artisan Bread or Italian bread
  • 2-3 cups leftover chili
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 stick butter
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp dried rosemary
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, freshly grated

Helpful Gear:

Step 1: Hollow Out Bread

Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.

Cut the ends off of the loafs of bread and cut the loaves in half or thirds depending on how large the loaves are. You are looking for pieces of bread about 5-6 inches long. Using a sharp knife and a spoon, hollow out the bread. Note that I baked the bread intentionally flat. If the diameter of the loaf is too large, or too round, more filling will be lost when baking. A nice flat loaf will retain it's filling better.
