Easy

Ingredients
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese (about 8 ounces)
  • 1 cup crumbled feta cheese (about 4 ounces)
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, diced
  • 1 8 -inch sourdough bread boule
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Combine the mozzarella, feta and butter in a large bowl. Slice off the top 2 inches of the bread boule and hollow it out, reserving the top and insides for dipping. Fill the bread bowl with the cheese mixture. Transfer to a baking dish, cover loosely with foil and bake 20 minutes.

  • Uncover and crack the egg on top of the cheese mixture. Continue baking, uncovered, until the egg white is almost set, 12 to 15 minutes, then broil until just set, 1 to 2 more minutes.

  • Remove from the oven and sprinkle with the red pepper flakes. Just before serving, break the egg yolk with a fork and beat into the melted cheese.

  • Serve with the bread trimmings or crudites.
