Made some baguettes during the weekend and I am happy with the 4-Hour Baguette recipe from SAVEUR. Easy to make and the texture of the baguette is really good. You can have a look at the baguette recipe which I posted up in Elinluv's Sweet Delights. WB asked how are we going to finish 3 long baguettes. I told him not to worry, I have a few recipes lined up and today I am going to share with you guys what I do with my homemade baguette. Stuffed Baguette ....sounds good...right? Yea, it is GOOD. I prepared the fillings and stuffed them into the baguette. I made the stuffing out of ripen avocados, mini cherry tomatoes, japanese cucumber, the baguette crumbs ( the dug out part of the baguette) and not to forget the grated parmesan cheese. I added in japanese mayo and a pinch of freshly ground black pepper and pinch of sea salt for taste. Stuffed the mixture into the hollow of the baguette and gosh...this hearty meal is something we will not forget. We each had a 7" long stuffed baguette and it was so filling that we burped and burped the whole nite. Mmmmm you should try this out too.
use a long thin knife and working from both ends hollow the baguette,
leaving 1/2" thick crust all around. Chill the fillings for 1 hour
before stuffing into the baguette
fill the baguette from both ends
you can either wrap the stuffed baguette and chill in the fridge for 1 hour before
slicing or you can slice them as soon as you have it stuffed.
this can be served as appetizer if you have guests for dinner
this is finger licking good..the creamy avocados and parmesan cheese
goes really well ...a great combination !

Cut both end of baguette and cut into two equal halves. Use a long thin knife and working from both ends, hollow the baguette out leaving 1/2 inch thick crust all around.
Diced the avocados, japanese cucumber and halves the mini cherry tomatoes. Put into a small mixing bowl. Add in the baguette crumbs , parmesan cheese, mayonaise, black pepper , salt and olive oil. Use a spatula, mix the ingredients together till evenly mixed. Wrap the bowl with cling wrap and chill in the fridge for an hour. Take it out and stuff the mixture into the hollows till it is packed on both sides. You can either chill the stuffed baguette for 30 minutes wrapped in cling wrap or aluminium for easy slicing.
