To wow the guests during cocktails or satisfy the urge for a snack, this bread loaf stuffed with OKA cheese is perfect. The recipe is so simple and delicious that you'd think it's been around forever (a bit like us!). Good to know that we still have a few "snacks" up our sleeve!

  1. Combine oil, chopped garlic, pesto and mustard to make a smooth vinaigrette. Reserve to pour over the top before baking.
  2. With a good bread knife, slice the bread every 1 inch, ¾ of the depth of the bread. Turn the bread 90° and repeat, giving one-inch square bread strips still all attached together as a loaf.
  3. Insert slices or grated cheese between as many bread strips as possible and place on a baking dish. Pour the oil mixture over the top allowing absorption between slices.
  4. Bake at 375 °F for 20 to 25 minutes until the cheese inside the bread is completely melted.
