Here’s to the cheese bread recipe of your dreams. Pull apart this heavenly recipe and you’ll see things moving in slow motion. Easy to make, easy to love, and easy to share!

Ingredients

  • 1 large loaf of bread (unsliced)
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 cloves of garlic (minced)
  • 1 tbsp fresh oregano
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme
  • 1 tbsp fresh parsley
  • 2 cups mozzarella (shredded)
  • 1/4 cup parmesan (grated)
  • Optional chili flakes for spice

Instructions

  1. To start, preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Get a baking sheet and prep it with lined baking paper (parchment, aluminum foil, etc.)
  3. Place your loaf of bread onto the pan or cutting board. Start by cutting a diagonal pattern with a serrated knife into the bread. Be sure to make your cuts all the way to the bottom, but without cutting through the base.
  4. In a bowl, mix together butter, thyme, parsley, and oregano.
  5. Using your fingers (or utensil), hold open the sliced sections of your bread and pour butter mixture liberally. The more butter, the better. Add chilli flakes here as well if desired.
  6. Next comes the cheese. Start by stuffing placing the mozzarella into the bread cracks.
  7. Cover your loaf with foil, and bake for about 10 minutes, or until the cheese is melted. The foil will prevent your cheese from burning.
  8. Once melted, remove the foil and sprinkle your parmesan cheese over the loaf.
  9. Place loaf back in the oven for another 5 minutes, or until melted and golden brown.
  10. Once cooked, add more fresh parsley for garnish and flavoring.
  11. Plate, pull, enjoy!

Instant Pot Cubano Sandwiches

There’s nothing too fancy about a classic Cubano sandwich but that’s what makes it so good! Try this delicious recipe for the perfect sandwich to take you to Florida without leaving your kitchen.

Ingredients

For the shredded pork:

  • 4 pounds boneless pork shoulder, trimmed of excess fat
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano
  • 6 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 1/3 cup lime juice
  • ½ cup chicken broth

For the sauce:

  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ cup yellow mustard
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper

For the Sandwich:

  • 1 pound thick sliced ham
  • 1-2 loaves soft French bread
  • 8-10 slices Swiss cheese
  • 1 cup sliced dill pickles
  • Butter for toasting the sandwiches

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, combine the salt, cumin, red pepper, and oregano.
  2. Place the pork shoulder into the Instant Pot and sprinkle all over with the seasoning mix.
  3. Add the minced garlic to the pot and pour the orange and lime juice and chicken broth over the pork.
  4. Lock the Instant Pot lid in place, making sure the venting valve is sealed.
  5. Set Instant Pot to cook on high pressure for 65 minutes.
  6. When the cooking time is up, allow the pressure to release naturally for 15 minutes, and then carefully turn the venting valve to release the remaining pressure. When the pressure pin drops, remove the lid.
  7. Remove the pork from the cooking liquid and shred once cooled. Then, stir the shredded pork back into the cooking juices to absorb some flavor.
  8. Mix the mayonnaise, mustard, and cayenne pepper together in a small bowl and set aside.
  9. When ready to assemble the sandwiches, slice a loaf of French bread in half and spread both sides with the sauce.
  10. Top one half of the bread with a good portion of the shredded pork followed by several slices of ham.
  11. Shingle the Swiss cheese slices over the other half of the bread and top with pickles.
  12. Combine the two halves to make a whole sandwich and cut into individual servings.
  13. Heat a heavy-bottomed skillet over medium heat and add a tablespoon of butter.
  14. Place a portion of sandwich into the melted butter and, using another heavy pot or pan, press the sandwich into the pan to flatten it. Cook until golden brown, flip and repeat until both sides are golden brown and cheese is melted.
  15. Repeat with the remaining sandwich portions and serve.
