Spaghetti Garlic Bread Braid...

Yes, I did.  I stuffed spaghetti and mozzarella cheese into a loaf of bread dough and baked it.

Not the most carb friendly recipe - but since I like to be friendly, I made the recipe - I mean really, what is not to love about it?

The recipe got rave reviews from all but one of family members - and she liked the spaghetti, just not the combination of spaghetti and bread together.

Here is how you do it:

1. Take a loaf of frozen bread dough and thaw it to room temp.  Roll the dough out to fit your cookie sheet.  Slice the dough at 1" intervals.  Allow to sit for 15 minutes.  While your dough is resting, cook your spaghetti noodles.

2.  Add spaghetti noodles, sauce and cheese down the middle of the dough.

3.  Braid your dough over your noodles and cheese.  Brush the top with egg white and sprinkle with parmesan cheese, parsley flakes and garlic powder.  (I used parm cheese and Tastefully Simples Garlic Bread Mix)...

4.  Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes.  Slice and serve!

Spaghetti Garlic Bread Braid
6 oz. spaghetti noodles, cooked
1 1/2 Cups of your favorite spaghetti sauce
1/2 lb. Ground Beef, browned
8 oz. Mozzarella Cheese
1 Loaf frozen bread dough (I used Rhodes)
DIRECTIONS:  Thaw bread dough to room temprature.  Roll dough out into a rectangle.  Cut strips into dough in 1" intervals (as shown in the picture above).  Place cooked spaghetti, sauce and meat, cheese down the middle of the dough.  Braid your dough by criss-crossing strips.  Brush with egg white and sprinkle with parmesan cheese, garlic powder and parsley flakes.  Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes!



  1. I am so intrigued by this! Love the recipes you find. Take care!

  2. I love the look and sound of this recipe. Approximately how many does it feed? What it the size of the end result? (How many inches long and how many inches wide?
    Thank you.

    1. So sorry I am just now seeing your comment/question...I would say this would feed approx. 6 people if you are serving with a side salad. It is very filling. The braid fit on my cookie sheet (length wise) and it was probably about 4" wide (I'm not good with measurements so that is a guess....and that is probably on the low side). Thanks for stopping by my blog!

  3. I make spaghetti pizza,kinda same idea. Its awesome :)
