Ham and Cheese Loaf

This golden loaf starts with convenient refrigerated dough—and stuffs it with deli ham and three types of cheese. I created the recipe by experimenting with ingredients my family loves. It makes a delicious hot sandwich in hardly any time. —Gloria Lindell, Welcome, Minnesota

    My kids loved this in their lunchboxes for school. I substituted turkey for ham for one batch for my picky child with great results.

    I loved this just the way it is.. and wish i had bought another tube of pizza crust to make a second one. Yes, you can definitely improvise the ingredients, but it was perfect as is also.

    Overall, this was good, but I am giving this recipe 4 stars instead of 5 because the ingredient measurements seemed off to me. I bought the exact size crust given in the recipe, but only used 6 slices of deli ham and the cheese was overboard to me (and I love cheese). I didn't even use the 1 cup each measurements - maybe about 3/4 cup each and I left out the provolone slices because I didn't have any. Even with the less amount of cheese, it still was way too much for this size loaf. I will definitely make this recipe again, but will maybe only use 1/2 cup each of the cheese. This is, howver, a great recipe you can really make your own - change it up with different fillings that you have on hand.... very versatile!

    Great fast dinner. I served it with tomato soup to dip it in. I would cut back on some of the cheese next time, but it was a hit for sure.
