Cob loaf recipes

Stuffed cobs are a party staple, especially in Australia. There’s something about serving food in a big edible bread bowl that never gets old. Extra bonus if you’re the chef, and you get all the joy of pulling the fluffy insides out of a big loaf of bread. 

For all those entertainers, here are 4 great stuffed cob recipes for your next gathering that are sure to please a crowd.

Quiche in a cob

Unlike your usual stuffed cob, this one is baked up firm so it’s easily sliceable. All the fun of a bread bowl with less chance of a mess. This one is particularly good to grab ‘n’ go, great for gatherings with kids.

Egg salad stuffed cob

Get the recipe:  Egg Salad Cob Loaf

Creamy egg salad with crusty bread plus vegetable dippers. This one is great because you can make the egg salad earlier in the day, and simply pour it into the bread bowl later. Plus, it’s great served cold so you don’t have to worry about heating it up at the right time.

The "Cobanoff"

Stuffed with creamy beef stroganoff, this show-stopping cob is spread with garlic butter too for an extra tasty experience. Share with your friends, but this cob is also hearty enough to enjoy as a meal, not just as a snack!
