When is the best time to enjoy this beautiful savoury loaf?
Breakfast, brunches, picnics, sidekick to soup or salad, easy snack, an addition to an antipasto platter, or a lazy dinner - Which is definitely how I’ve been enjoying this amazing homemade bread loaf.
What makes this loaf better than any other Sun-dried Tomato, Feta & Olive loaf is that it is made with Protein Bread Mix as the base, so not only are you getting a tasty flavoursome bread - you're getting one that is packed with the additional goodness from the wholesome ingredients in each pack, it's not your average bread flour.
This recipe is just the start...
Another great thing about this recipe is that you could really have fun with the ingredients, you could any combo of your favourite antipasto ingredients in here;
Green or black olives, any type of cheese, feta, strong cheddar, gouda, swiss, marinated veggies like eggplant, tomatoes, zucchini, artichokes, herbs like rosemary, basil, thyme, even add in meats like ham (when I’ve used ham, I have cooked it slightly as I think it tastes better, same with bacon. You could also add in salami or prosciutto, or a swirl of pesto... YUM!
How should I serve this?
When it comes to serving up a slice (or 2) of this amazing loaf - you MUST toast it! Trust me on this, it is just so tasty it will blow your mind, and don’t forget that drizzle of olive oil, or a dash of butter, ohh, or garlic butter, because...well butter is awesome!

1Set your oven to 180°C and preheat for 20 minutes. Line a loaf tin. I used a large loaf tin to make extra room for added ingredients.
2Chop and prepare the additional ingredients (olives, feta, cheddar, basil, and sun-dried tomato)
3Whisk together the eggs and water in a large mixing bowl, then add the olives, feta, basil, and sun-dried tomato, then mix through the pack of Protein Bread Mix and combine well.
4Pour this mixture into the loaf tin and decorate with leftover cheese, olives or herbs. This is optional.
5Bake for 60 mins or until golden. Check with a skewer, if it needs a little more, bake for another 5 mins.
6Once baked, allow to cool in the tin for a few minutes, before transferring to a cooling rack. Allow to cool for 2 hrs before slicing.
7This bread needs to be stored in the fridge, can be stored for up to 5 days and frozen for up to 2 months.
What other variations can you make with this...
Ham, Cheese & Green Olive - This combination was inspired by a French cake called ‘Sale Cake’ which means ‘savoury cake’ it is usually served as an appetiser at a drinks and nibbles sort of pre-dinner get-together. The cheeses recommended are; grated Comté, Gruyère, or aged cheddar, but you can use any cheese. They tend to use what is local to them. Ham, diced and cooked. When I’ve made this I have added in an extra 2 chopped, fresh jalapeños and let me tell you - IT IS SOOO GOOD!
Spinach, Feta Cheese and Olive - Simple swap of ingredients. Swap the sun-dried tomatoes to spinach. Don’t forget to squeeze the moisture out of the cooked spinach, you can use frozen too.
Zucchini, Cheddar & Chives - Grate 1 medium zucchini (squeeze out the moisture) , add 2 handfuls of shredded cheddar and chop up a small bunch of chives - this is a classic savoury bread combo and is absolutely delish! You could use something a little more fancy, like goat cheese!
Bacon, Cheese and Chilli - This combo makes a killer breakfast slice, team with eggs your way!
Carrot, Zucchini, Spring Onion, Parsley and Cheese - Spring loaf! - Cheese of choice for this one and again, makes a beautiful breakfast slice, or perhaps a light lunch paired with soup. Grate the carrot and zucchini and squeeze the moisture out. :)
Frequently Asked Questions...
