This is great to serve as an hors d'oeuvres during football season or during a cocktail party at anytime of the year.

I've listed the serving size as 6-12. It really depends on how many pieces your guests eat.

  6. Add the cheeses, capers and seasonings. Mix well.
  7. Pack mixture into hollowed out bread crust. Replace top and wrap in tin foil.
  8. Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees.
  9. Unwrap, drizzle some additional olive oil on top of crust and bake uncovered for 5 minutes.
  10. Cut into 1-1/2 inch slices and serve warm.
