Okay - I have a "new" recipe for everyone today. I'm quite proud of myself with this one.
This past Sunday I was able to sample something at church that I thought was absolutely wonderful. When I asked about it, I was told what it was called and all I remember is that it started with an r.
I set out to duplicate it and didn't do too bad. Because I can't remember the name of it nor did I follow any recipe I've decided to call this one Stuffed Bread. Yeah, really imaginative, I know.
Here are some pictures of the finished product and then I will tell you what I did.
The first picture is the finished product right out of the oven.
1 loaf of frozen bread dough (you could make dough from scratch if you were more ambitious than I was yesterday.)
Deli cut pastrami
Deli cut ham
Deli cut turkey
Seasoning salt (mine has salt, pepper, garlic salt and other stuff - you can use what you want)
What I did:
I let the frozen bread dough thaw and rise a little. Then I punched it down and rolled it out into a rectangle. I didn't roll it too thin and it might have been better (and bigger) had I rolled the dough out more.
Then I sprinkled my seasoning salt over the dough (just guessed at what would be a good amount).
Next, I layered the deli meats and cheese. One layer meat, one layer shredded cheese, one layer meat. (you could use anything you want - I would think pepperoni, sausage, Canadian bacon, etc. would be really good, too and more pizzaish)
Then I folded the whole contraption in half and pinched the sides together. I think if you used some egg on the dough it might help it to stick together better. I didn't use it and it worked fine, but a light dusting of the egg on top should give it a prettier brown top.
After pinching the sides down I sprinkled the top with more seasoning salt and a little bit of the mozzarella cheese and put it all in the oven for thirty minutes at 350 degrees.
All in all I really liked the finished product but it would probably be better for a snack or lunch rather than supper. However, you could serve the cut pieces with some spaghetti/pizza sauce and that would be really good, too.
