Either braai the Eskort Rib Burgers or oven bake them for 12 minutes.

Slice the loaf in half horizontally and hollow out some of the bread to create space for your filling.

Spread the butter in a thick layer on the bottom half and cover with the garlic and then grated mozzarella.

Chop up the onion into slices and dice the green pepper.

Once the Eskort Rib Burgers are cooked, chop them up and spread evenly over the bottom half of the loaf of bread.

Spread the onion slices, green peppers and chopped cherry tomatoes over the Rib Burgers. Lastly spread the basil pesto over the top half of the loaf and add the fresh basil leaves to the filling.

Cover with foil and braai for 15 – 20 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and the bread is crispy.
