Badabing Bread

The other day when the gracious Mrs P took me to Gagliano’s Italian Market & Deli, she mentioned Badabing Bread so of course I had to try it! It’s a loaf of Italian goodness — ham, salame, pepperoni, Pueblo chiles, sausage and Mozzarella.

You bake it at 375 degrees Fahrenheit on the lower rack for 20-25 minutes and then move it to a higher rack for an additional 25 minutes. You’ll want to brush the loaf in a mixture of 1 egg and olive oil to help it achieve a golden brown glow.


While the loaf did its thing in the oven, in a saucepan I heated up some Barilla sauce to serve with the bread.


I opened a bottle of Chianti so it could breathe.


Mine deflated a little – but — Andiamo a mangiare!


I found it neat that my foodie friend, Mrs P, was also serving this at her house tonight. She sent me the photo below that nicely shows the goodness inside. This is the way it should look. (A special shout out — Happy Happy Birthday to the wonderful Mr P!)


…because mine must have had a weak spot or little tear in the dough as unfortunately it badabinged in the oven!

    Good morning Mrs. Beans,
    Thoroughly enjoyed your post!!! Even though yours went “bing”, the inside pic of it looked perfect. Thought it was funny we had to on the same night. Mine did start to leak towards the last 4 minutes of baking, so just took it out. Did you enjoy the bada bing bread? Would you do it again?

    Have a great Wednesday,
    Mrs. P

      We did enjoy it very much! I wish they’d make a smaller loaf as it’s quite big. The other half is hanging out in the freezer.

      I’m sure I would buy it again!

    Fantastico! Mrs B, you did a great job. Have you tried Trader Joe’s Organic Marinara Sauce, the best jarred sauce my American-Italian husband has ever had. Kewl, I don’t need to make sauce every Sunday anymore 😀

      I haven’t tried it but it sounds delicious!

      Back in Portland we had many Trader Joe’s stores nearby. The closest one to use here is several hours away. :/
