This oh-so cheesy cob loaf is made for sharing. Using Australian made Gruyere cheese gives a great flavour punch and matches perfectly with the pumpkin and sage flavours.

Pumpkin Gruyere and Sage Cob
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced). Heat butter in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add leek, garlic, sage, and cook, stirring for two minutes. Add pumpkin and cook, stirring for 4-5 minutes or until the leek and pumpkin is soft. Pour in the wine and cook for one minute, or until wine has evaporated. Stir in cream, cheeses and mustard
  2. Cut the top off the cob load and scoop the soft break out of the centre, leaving a 2-3cm shell. Roughly tear inside bread into bite-sized pieces to use for serving and reserve
  3. Lay two large sheets of foil on the tray at crossways to each other. Place the cob in the centre of the cross and fill with pumpkin mixture. Put the lid back on the cob and wrap it in foil to enclose. Bake for 40 minutes then remove foil and cook for a further 20 minutes or until the cob is crisp and cheese is melted and warmed through
  4. Meanwhile, place the reserved bread chunks on a baking tray and toast in the oven alongside the cob, until golden brown
  5. Heat a frying pan over medium heat and cook bacon until crisp and golden brown. Remove cob lid and sprinkle over bacon over the hot cheese dip. Serve with extra crusty bread to dip in the centre

It was so bland and gross, needs onion or something more instead of leak
