Oh, wow! What more can I say. This was so delicious and very popular. I added a few finely chopped sun-dried tomatoes, and it was a huge success. I also did the dough up in my bread machine on dough cycle, before putting the filling on and baking in the oven. It worked very well, and made preparation extremely easy.
I subsituted the flour with a little wholemeal, otherwise followed exactly. But found the recipe bland..did not taste as good as it sounds.
The loaf shaping is easy: mound the filling in the middle third of the dough, then make cuts from the filling to the edges of the doug, making 3/4 inch wide strips. Alternating sides, fold the strips at an angle across the filling. The top of the loaf will look like a braid.
This bread was good. I served it at a graduation party and even though I did something wrong and the bread didn't rise, it was still very good. I will try again.
I love this recipe!!! It turns out great every time, and I make it when I have a party or luncheon to go to. I like to just use meat and cheese, and I vary the kinds I use. Lunchmeat from the deli cut in strips works great.
The bread itself is excellent. I made this recipe with my bread maker and took it out after the dough cycle. I used cheddar because that was what I had on hand. The time preparation is longer than what is listed.
What a great recipe! I make it with sliced pepperoni instead of ham, and it's very good. It doesn't last a day in my house.
This bread is excellent. I have added roasted chopped garlic and dried herbs to the mix folded in the centre...that added a completely new dimension to it. My friends and family love it and I bake it almost every other week.
