19 Stuffed Bread Recipes: Mind-Blowing Filled Combinations 🤯

19 Stuffed Bread Recipes: Mind-Blowing Filled Combinations 🤯

Bread is often delicious all on its own, but today we have the bonus feature of stuffed bread recipes!

Stuffed bread, you ask? 

Oh yes! 

This list includes all different kinds of filled bread-like bread bowls and stuffed baked bread ideas like hollowed-out french loaves! 

Some of these tantalizing stuffed bread ideas may just send you straight to the grocery store! 

These bread-filling ideas could be protein, vegetable, or sweet mixtures. 

You will find some very familiar filled bread ideas like using typical subway sandwich fixings nestled into the bottom piece of bread and leaving it open on top. 

Many filled bread recipes have the filling baked inside the bread or crust. 

Some bread with filling recipes are designed to be appetizers or served family-style while others are individual servings. 

The stuffed bread recipes do not stop there! 

Some are for breakfast using eggs, some for lunch resembling a sandwich situation, some for dinner entrees and low and behold, some even for dessert! 

You are not going to want to miss #19, talk about decadence! 

Do not bat an eye if you do not know how to make stuffed bread because the instructions in each recipe will guide you through the process. 

The hardest part may be deciding which one to try first!

A filled bread with chicken and avocado sounds amazing! 

This mixture is made of cream cheese, sour cream, chicken, avocado, mozzarella cheese, and green onion. 

The French bread is cut in thirds and hollowed out. 

Carefully fill the bread with the chicken mixture and then cut the filled bread into one-inch slices. 

The top is brushed with a mixture of butter, parmesan, garlic, and parsley before wrapping in foil and baking! 

So, so wonderful!

Ground sausage-filled bread is on the no-nonsense end of things!

Cook up that sausage into crumbles. 

Then in a bowl, mix it with mozzarella cheese, egg, mustard, onion powder, fennel seeds, salt, pepper, and Italian seasoning! 

Unroll a can of refrigerated pizza dough and evenly spread the sausage mixture across the dough, before rolling up and sealing the edges. 

Brush the top with butter, Italian seasoning, and garlic before baking! 

Cut into slices and serve!

Keeping filled bread recipes simple is this Epic Stuffed Garlic Bread! 

I do believe this is the way I will forevermore now make garlic bread, it is that good! 

It starts with a fantastic garlic mix made of garlic cloves, parsley, butter, olive oil, salt, pepper, and freshly grated parmesan cheese. 

The bread loaf you are using is cut into slices that do not reach all the way through. 

Spread the filling between each slice. 

There can never be too much filling! 

Wrap in foil and bake! 


Sloppy Joe’s are famous far and wide so let’s just go ahead and enjoy it in bread with a filling style presentation! 

Cook up the ground beef. 

Then add in green peppers, onions, Worcestershire sauce, ketchup, brown sugar, salt, and pepper, and bring to a boil. 

Cut the bread loaf in half horizontally and take out some of the bread from the center. 

Warm slightly in the oven and then spoon the sloppy joe mixture evenly on both sides. 

Top each with shredded cheese and bake until melted. 

Cut into slices and enjoy! 

Much less messy in my opinion!

If you are a make-it-from scratch kinda cook, bread filling ideas like this one will tickle your fancy! 

This Spinach And Ricotta Rolls recipe has full instructions for making the luscious dough. 

The filling mixture is made of ricotta cheese, egg, minced garlic, salt, pepper, oregano, and thinly chopped spinach. 

The dough is rolled out with the mixture spread evenly on top, then rolled up and sliced into pinwheels for baking. 

Beautiful and tasty!

Fajitas served as stuffed bread ideas, well that IS something new! 

If you are looking to ditch the tortilla in favor of a simpler, perhaps less messy option, this recipe is for you! 

Hollow out the two sides of the bread loaf. 

The filling begins with sauteed bell peppers and onions. 

In a bowl mix cream cheese, salt, garlic, cumin, oregano, chili powder, paprika, ancho chili powder, mozzarella cheese, and shredded chicken. 

The bread is filled with five layers of veggies, chicken mix, more veggies, more chicken mix, and cheese before baking! 

These will disappear fast!

This stuffed baked bread is inspired by what New Englanders call a grinder which is a sub sandwich that is served warm with lots of meat and cheese. 

Cut the top off the bread loaf and hollow out the inside leaving enough to be stable, adding butter and Italian seasonings. 

Layer in salami, turkey, and ham by rolling each slice and laying them side by side. 

Add the provolone slices flat on top with some overlapping. 

The top is glorious mozzarella! 

Bake and sprinkle on preferred toppings whether bell peppers or banana peppers. 

Simple, straightforward, and delicious!

Oh, my days! 

If you want to know how to make stuffed bread in a totally different way than sandwich style, you are going to have your socks knocked off with this recipe! 

Cheesecake Stuffed Banana Bread! 

You read that right, banana bread with cheesecake stuffed or layered inside! 

Two mixtures to make here, the bread batter and the cheesecake filling! 

Assemble by pouring half the banana batter into the prepared loaf pan, topping with the cream cheese mixture, and finishing with the other half of the bread batter before baking! 

An hour to cook and half an hour to cool, but it is SO worth it!

Earlier, we covered an amazing garlic stuffed bread and since stuffed bread recipes accommodate all tastes, I am including this one which highlights the garlic along with Brie cheese! 

This is what is called a pull-apart bread. 

It starts with a round bread loaf, sourdough, or otherwise, that is cut both vertically and horizontally from the top but not all the way through.

Melted butter with roasted garlic is poured over. 

Diced brie is pressed into the cuts before it is wrapped in foil and baked. 

Served family-style! 

My next recipe for filled bread is comfort food deluxe! 

Stuffed Pepperoni Pizza Bread is perfect literally anytime, anywhere, with anybody! 

Cut the bread loaf in half horizontally, scoop out the bread centers leaving a nice edge. 

Spread pizza sauce inside, fill with cheese, and top with pepperoni slices, oregano, basil, and garlic powder. 

Bake knowing this recipe will deliver smiles every time!

Philly cheesesteak lovers will unite behind this filled bread recipe highlighting these infamous ingredients! 

In olive oil, cook the thinly sliced beef with Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper, and rotel! 

Saute green peppers and onions next. 

Cut open the bread loaf, saving the top, and hollow it out.

Lay provolone cheese slices down the center. 

Follow that with the meat mixture, then veggies, and the rest of the provolone slices. 

Replace the top of the bread, wrap in foil, and bake. 


Perhaps you are a fan of using a puff pastry for filled bread recipes! 


I am too! 

Here is a great tip to keep in mind when using puff pastry. 

The cold is your friend. 

Cold pastry and cold ingredients assemble best because it keeps the pastry from becoming sticky. 

Beautiful pictures and step-by-step instructions on how to create this strudel with broccoli, mushrooms, bell pepper, garlic, cheese, and lovely herbs!

Breakfast bread with filling is fantastic whether you are sitting down to eat or have to grab it and go! 

Feel free to make your own dinner roll dough to roll out, fill, pinch together and bake or frozen dinner yeast roll dough balls can be used. 

These adorable bombs are filled with cooked bacon, scrambled eggs, roasted red peppers, and cheese while the tops are brushed with garlic herb butter and baked to perfection. 

No, you may not be able to get your fill of these!

BBQ comes front and center now on my bread-filling ideas list! 

BBQ chicken that is! 

Carefully cut off the top and hollow out the bread loaf. 

Fill with the BBQ chicken and most definitely add more sauce on top of the chicken because the bread is sturdy enough to soak some up. 

Shredded mozzarella cheese comes next and seasonings go on top before baking. 

Winner for sure!

Stuffed bread ideas are so delicious and this Khachapuri-Georgian Cheese Bread is too, with fluffy bread, multiple kinds of cheese, and runny egg that could be breakfast, brunch, or even lunch! 

The homemade dough part has excellent instructions with a unique way of rolling and shaping to be boat-like! 

So allow time for that! 

The filling is three types of cheese and egg! 

Really can’t go wrong with this one! 

Mind-blowing creations happen when two things are combined that no one ever thought would be put together. 

Here we have a stuffed baked bread that combines a salad and bread for a savory mouthwatering Caprese salad in a pull-apart bread recipe! 

I KNOW…mind blown! 

Start with a round bread, cutting across the top horizontally and vertically not quite through the bottom. 

Stuff tomato mixture of tomatoes, basil, garlic, salt, and pepper into the slices. 

After that, stuff in shredded mozzarella cheese too! 

Bake and drizzle with a balsamic glaze and fresh basil. 

Simply Fabulous! 

Let’s now see how to make stuffed bread that starts as flat pizza dough and rolls up for pleasing bite-size portions of Stromboli! 

It has all the yummies of butter, garlic, cheese, ham, salami, pepperoni, and a tasty butter mixture brushed on top.  

Bake, then slice and serve with a marinara sauce for dipping! 

Lots of great tips and explanations!

The penultimate of stuffed bread recipes might just be this one! 

First off, it is a DESSERT! 

Second, it is a combination of two all-time favorite items, chocolate chip cookies, and soft pretzels! 

Sounds like a divine match made in heaven! 

Two recipes are included, one for each part. 

The pretzel dough is rolled out flat with the cookie dough rolled like a snake and then wrapped in the pretzel dough before shaping! 

Oh, these are DELICIOUS on a whole other level!

The bottom line

Stuffed bread recipes are lots of fun to make once the formula becomes routine! 

Also any cold salad you enjoy like crab salad, chicken salad, or egg salad could easily be served as bread-filled ideas as well! 

Experiment with your own favorite ingredients and I bet you could come up with your own personalized filled bread recipe!
