This classic originates in the USA somewhere which is where I first tasted it many years ago...and has become a staple at all family celebrations where you want something a bit retro, but that literally everyone wants in on. I used a stunning sourdough cob loaf, you don't even have to have a loaf if you don't feel up to the challenge, just bake in an oven proof dish and you are away, but why wouldn't you have the bread, all toasty and crunchy and fragrant. SERIOUSLY? SO good. Just so so good. If I say so myself.
