STUFFED CHIABATTA

STUFFED CHIABATTA

Being able to make meals a little in advance is a real plus in my little galley.  When it comes times to eat most of the prep mess has been cleaned up and I can kind of pretend that someone else has prepared it for me…kind of.  I live a lot in my imaginary world.

These yummy stuffed breads are such a meal. Prep, wrap and clean-up and when the time comes just pop them on the barbecue.  They make great camping meals and take-alongs for picnics too.
