Waaaay better than a boring old sandwich, these melty, hot stuffed petit pains are a thing of beauty!

Bread is a wonderful thing – be it sweet toasties, beautiful brioche or artisan bread rolls (ok, maybe sandwiches aren’t that boring).  You just can’t beat bread for a quick lunch.

And the good thing about these stuffed breads, is they’re made from par-baked rolls – the ones in the vacuum packed bags, that last for ages.
They’re a great store-cupboard essential, so you can have warm, crusty fresh tasting bread any time.

  • Preheat oven to 200C/400F (fan).

  • Take the part baked rolls out of the packaging and place on a chopping board. Using a sharp knife, carefully cut out an oblong hole from the top of the rolls. Scoop out the bread, ensuring you don’t pierce the bottom of the rolls.

    4 part-baked petit pains or rolls

  • Place the rolls on a baking tray. Discard the scooped out bread (or save to use for homemade breadcrumbs or croutons).

  • Mix together the mushrooms, cream cheese, creme fraiche and garlic in a bowl. Stir the cheese and the black pepper.

    8 small mushrooms, 120 g (½ cup) cream cheese, 3 tbsp creme fraiche, 1 garlic clove, 50 g (½ cup, firmly packed) mature cheddar cheese, grated, 1 pinch of freshly ground black pepper

  • Spoon the mixture into the bread rolls.

  • Top the stuffed bread rolls with a little more cheese.

    25 g (¼ cup, firmly packed) mature cheddar cheese, grated

  • Place in the oven and cook for 10 minutes – until the bread and cheese is golden brown.

  • Remove from the oven and sprinkle with fresh parsley before serving.

    2 tbsp Chopped fresh parsley to serve

✎ Notes

What to do with the leftover scooped out bread 

  • Use for dipping! Drizzle with olive oil and a little salt and pepper, then place in the oven with the stuffed breads
  • Make breadcrumbs: Grate or whizz in a food processor, then place in a bag and freeze.
  • Make croutons: Chop into 1 cm pieces, drizzle with oil, salt and pepper and bake in the oven at 200C/400F for 5-8 minutes, until golden.
  • Make garlic bread bites: Brush/spread on garlic butter and bake in the oven at 200C/400F for 3-5 minutes, until golden, but still a little soft.
  • Make cheese-on-toast toppers for soup: Top with grated cheese, then grill (broil) until the cheese is bubbling.

Can I make it ahead?
You can make the filling ahead of time, or make the filling and stuff the breads (but don’t bake). Make up to a day ahead, then store, covered, in the refrigerator until ready to bake.
I wouldn’t recommend baking the stuffed breads ahead of time, then reheating as I think the breads would go too hard and crispy.

Ingredient swaps
Keep the cream cheese, creme fraiche and cheddar, and then add what you like….

  • Cooked chicken
  • Chopped peppers
  • Jalapeños
  • Pepperoni
  • Ham
  • Sweetcorn
  • Think of your favourite pizza topping and stuff it in!
