Man Food: Braided Spaghetti Bread

God bless the fusion of Italian cooking and American ingenuity; this masterpiece is perfect for carbo(ver)loading and the leftovers are perfect for lunch the next day! You’ll need: 1 loaf Rhodes bread dough or 12 Rhodes dinner rolls, 6oz cooked spaghetti, 1cup thick spaghetti sauce, 8oz mozzarella cheese (cut into ½” cubes), 1 egg white, Parmesan cheese, and parsley flakes.

  1. Roll load of bread dough or combined dinner rolls into a 12″ x 16″ rectangle. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit for 10-15 minutes.
  2. Cook spaghetti according to package instructions, then drain and let cool slightly.
  3. Remove plastic wrap from bread dough. Place spaghetti lengthwise in a 4″ strip down the center of dough, then top with spaghetti sauce and cheese cubes.
  4. Make cuts 1½” apart on long sides of dough to within ½” of the spaghetti filling.
  5. Begin braiding by folding top and bottom strips toward the filling, then braid strips left over right, right over left. Finish by pulling last strip over and tucking under braid.
  6. Lift braid with both hands and place on large sprayed baking sheet, then brush with egg white and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and parsley flakes.
  7. Bake at 350° F for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly and slice to serve.
