My friend Barbara, was telling me, of a recipe that a colleague of hers makes every Christmas. I’m going to call it stuffed bread, for a lack of a better word. She sautes escarole, anchovy, garlic and green olives, which she then wraps dough around, to make a long loaf. As she was telling me, my memory flood gates opened.
I have an Aunt, that was one of those people, where cooking and baking came naturally. Everything she made was delicious, but I had my favorites. While my friend was talking, I remembered that my Aunt Lee, made a similar bread using broccoli rabe and black olives; I loved this….how could I have forgotten!! From the second I remembered, I wanted to make the bread.
I sauteed broccoli rabe with garlic and anchovy, then added the black olives. I rolled out pizza dough in a pan, put the cooled filing on one side of the dough, folded it over and then baked it. It’s that easy. When I took the first bite, the taste was so familiar that it made me smile.
I’m so happy Barbara, woke up my memory. It gave me a little piece of my past, with a person I loved.
