Voilà! A shapely baking pan turns refrigerated bread dough into a made-in-minutes braided loaf.
cans (11 oz each) refrigerated crusty French loaf
cup shredded Parmesan cheese (2 oz), if desired
Heat oven to 350°F. Spray braided loaf pan with cooking spray. Remove dough from cans. Completely unroll 1 can of dough; wrap around second loaf and press edges to seal. Place loaf, seam side up, in pan.
Bake 32 to 36 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to cooling rack, placing braid side up. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over top of loaf. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
Look for braided loaf pans at kitchen specialty stores.
Slice this loaf horizontally in half, and pile on the meat, cheese and veggies to create a giant sub.
Pair a warm braided loaf with a jar of jam as a welcome gift for a new neighbor.
