Ham and Cheddar in a Loaf
1 lb. frozen bread dough, thawed
1 package (90z) shaved smoke ham
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 egg beaten
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 350
Place dough on a lightly floured surface; flatten with hands and roll into a 12 x 8 inch rectangle with rolling pin.
top dough evenly with ham, overlapping slightly. leave 1/2 inch border around all of the sides.
Mix cheese and mayonnaise and spread evenly over the ham.
Starting at one of the long sides of the dough, fold 1/3 dough over the filling, then repeat with the other long side of the dough. Firmly pinch ends of dough together to seal. Place seam-side down on lightly greased baking sheet.
Cut 3 diagonal slits on top of dough. Brush evenly with egg; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
Bake 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 10 minutes before slicing.
I use two loaves of dough and till only use 1 package of ham, but I do double the cheese and mayonnaise, and it seems to be enough for the 4 of us.
