Bake for 25 minutes or until golden and cooked in the middle.

BBQ sauce

Mix all the ingredients in a blender and blitz until thick and smooth.

Cut the top of the bread and hollow out the inside.

Slice the mushrooms and fry in a saucepan until golden.

Pan-fry the marinated meat, then slice thinly.

Layer the inside of the bread with piquant peppers, mushrooms, meat, avocado and beetroot.

Press down the filling and close with the cut-out bread, then slice.
