Posted on April 19, 2017 by caro.parodi@kylebooks.com in Baking

Makes 1 baguette

100g butter

3–4 large garlic cloves

100g mozzarella

100g Cheddar

A handful of fresh herbs – parsley, basil, marjoram and oregano all work well

1 fresh baguette, sliced diagonally at 4–5cm intervals

Paprika for sprinkling


1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan 180°C/gas mark 6.

2. Put all the filling ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until fully incorporated.

3. Generously spread the filling between the baguette slices.

Wrap the baguette loosely in foil then place in the oven for 20–25 minutes, until the filling has melted.

4. Remove from the oven, open the foil and sprinkle with paprika. Leaving the foil open, return the baguette to the oven for a few minutes, until the crust is golden brown.
