Serves 8

Prep time: 10 minutes 

Cook time: 20 minutes 


  • 1 large sourdough loaf 
  • 1 jar Goldcrest Sweet Pepper Relish 
  • 200g butter, softened
  • 2 Tbsp chives, thinly sliced
  • 2 Tbsp parsley, chopped
  • 2 tsp rosemary, finely chopped
  • 6-8 garlic cloves, minced or grated 
  • Pinch sea salt flakes 
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup Parmesan cheese, grated 

Top tip – if you want this bread extra delicious & extra cheesy slip a few thin slices of mozzarella in between each slice before baking


  1. Preheat oven to 200˚C or prepare a braai. 
  2. Cut deep slits in the loaf of sourdough avoiding going all the way through. 
  3. Mix the butter, herbs and garlic in a bowl. Season well with salt and pepper. 
  4. Using a butter knife or an offset spatula, spread the garlic butter inside each slit. 
  5. Make sure to really get in there and cover each slice generously. 
  6. Using a teaspoon take dollops of Goldcrest Sweet Pepper Relish and spoon them in between the slices. 
  7. Place loaf on a baking tray and top with the grated Parmesan. 
  8. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes until deeply golden brown.

To cook on the braai:

  1. Wrap the entire loaf in tin foil and place on the braai for 20 minutes. 
  2. Remove loaf from the oven and allow to cool slightly before serving with extra relish on the side for dipping.
