Going Crazy


If you're on Pinterest, I'm sure you've seen a version of Crazy Bread out there.  We've tried a few, and this stuff is awesome.  One of my favorites things is Italian deli meats.  So I wanted to try to marry Crazy Bread with an Italian deli sandwich.  And a star was born.  It was crispy in places, chewy in places, soft in places, and good all over.  We devoured this like vultures. It was kinda embarrassing.  Maybe you should try using a knife and fork if you want to keep your dignity.

ITALIAN DELI CRAZY BREAD
1 loaf Italian bread (I used Everything flavored)
1 C mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried parsley
4-5 basil leaves, chopped
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon thyme
1 T pepperoncini brine from the jar
1/4 C red onion, sliced
1/4 C pepperoncini pepper slices
Assorted salamis
Sliced provolone
Sliced mozzarella
Sliced muenster cheese

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Slice the bread at 1-inch intervals, but don't slice all the way through the bottom.  Mix the mayo, onion powder, garlic powder, parsley, basil, oregano, thyme, and the pepperoncini brine together.  Spread this mixture down in between the sliced parts of the bread.  Alternating the cheese varieties, shove a slice of cheese into each cut.  Then alternating the salami varieties, shove about five slices into every other cut.  Shove the pepperoncini slices and red onion slices into the remaining cuts, meaning the cuts with no salami in it.  Wrap the whole thing tightly with foil and bake about 25-30 minutes or until the outsides are a little crispy and the cheese is all melted.

  10. Sounds amazing! Can you taste the mayo? I'm not a fan of mayo, so was thinking maybe butter could be used as a substitute?

    1. Thank you! It does taste like mayo with Italian dressing flavor. I think butter may work, but I'm not sure if it would make the bread soggy. I'm sure other people that find this recipe would like to know that too, so please let me know how it turns out.

  11. Do you think I can assemble this a day ahead and then cook the next day? - thinking about tailgates!

    1. I think you could, although I'm not sure if the mayo mixture would make the bread soggy or not. Maybe assemble it and then try to put the mayo in the day of cooking. I would love to hear how that turns out!

  19. do you think could make by cutting lengthwise in half, putting all toppings on one side, put top back on, wrap in foil and bake? that way could cut into pieces and serve as appetizer at party?

  21. We tried the "dignified knife and fork version", but it quickly degraded into a free-for-all. Seriously one of the most delicious things I have ever eaten!

  27. My whole family loves this. My 16 year old in particular loves it. He attended a funeral today for a friend who died very unexpectedly. He's really hurting so I asked him what dinner he would like. He asked for crazy bread. :). It's in the oven now. Thank you for sharing this!
