1 250g Maple Leaf® Natural Diced Ham

1 325g long baguette or 350 gram round sour dough

1 320g bag double cheddar shredded cheese

Garlic butter, prepared


1. Heat oven to 400°F

2. In a large bowl toss ham and shredded cheese together.

3. On a clean surface using a serrated knife, carefully slice a slightly inverted cut around the top of the bread being careful to not slice through. Gently remove the top.

4. Using your hands, hollow out the cavity of the bread and discard or save for use in another recipe.

5. Liberally spread garlic butter all over the inside cavity of the bread and also the inside lid of the top of the bread.

6. Stuff cavity with ham and cheese mixture and press down as firmly as you can.

7. Tightly wrap the stuffed bread with tin foil. You may have to use multiple sheets.

8. Place bread onto a baking sheet and bake in center oven for 20 to 25 mins.

9. Allow to cool for a few minutes.

10. Carefully unwrap – it will be hot. Slice immediately. Serve with ketchup or BBQ sauce for dipping.
