> 1 medium loaf Italian bread
> 1/2 (7 - to 8 oz) container prepared pesto
> 4 oz shredded sharp cheddar cheese
> Heavy duty foil


Slice along entire length of the loaf of bread, cutting almost all the way to the bottom but leaving about ½ inch uncut so slices remain attached.
Spread the pesto in between slices. Stuff the Cheddar in between slices. Wrap entire loaf in heavy-duty foil and place over fire, 4–5 min. for a very hot fire and 8–10 min. for a cooler fire, until bread toasts and cheese melts.
Carefully unwrap and serve.


No campfire? Use a wood-burning fire pit instead or grill foil-wrapped bread over medium heat, covered, 10–15 min., turning over halfway through.
