Angie’s Stuffed Italian Loaf

Stuffed Italian Loaf Recipe

The other night my 5 year old Liza wanted to “cook” dinner by herself. I thought for a minute, and decided yes with appropriate supervision, of course. The easiest recipe I know is also pretty darn frugal.

Just use whatever meat, cheese and dressing you have on hand! And, yes, Liza made the entire thing, except for putting it in the oven. The Italian loaf was good, but her self esteem is priceless! (The preparation time noted is when I do it. Children will take much much longer!)

    I’m so glad you’re letting her learn to cook like this! It’s never too early to start really (as soon as they can play pretend with a bowl and spoon in the kitchen, they’re already learning, hehe). I’m sure you boosted her confidence by letting her do it and that’s the important part right now. <3
