Antipasto Bread Recipe

Sauteed vegetables add fresh, robust flavor to these hearty bread slices from Genise Krause of Sturgeon Bay, Wisconsin. For a change of pace, use prosciutto or shaved deli ham instead of salami. GENISE’S TIP: “On extra-busy nights, I sometimes substitute prepared giardiniera for the vegetables to speed things up.”
