1 cup chopped green bell peppers

1/4 cup chopped green onions

8 ounces softened cream cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. With serrated knife, trim top from each bread loaf. Save top and hollow out center of loaves, leaving about 1/2-inch-thick shell. Set aside.

Fill hollow breads with sausage-cheese mixture and replace tops. Wrap securely in heavy-duty aluminum foil, place on baking sheet and bake 1 hour. Slice and serve warm.
