    Very delicious. I used sliced muenster and sharp cheddar to make rolling up the dough easier. I used fresh poblano peppers instead of pimientos. I buttered the crust after it baked.My problem was how to pat that dough into a large rectangle. It was like trying to keep a rubber band stretched out. Anyone have a tip??

    This is an excellent springboard recipe! However, it is way, way too salty. I realize now why they suggested a sweet side dish to go with it! Next time, I will eliminate the salami (which is the main cause of the salt), and just keep the same amount of ham. That should improve it. It would be great without any meat. I would add the meat just so that it would be a complete lunch (other than the veggies).

    I loved this recipe and so did my fussy 5 year old! The candy bar apple salad was a big hit as well!

    I LOVE this recipe! The first time I tried this I forgot the ham and just doubled up on the salami and it was terrific. The second time I skipped the ham intentionally and had salami and peperoni which was also very good. Just a hint for the dough, it doesn't say it's Pillsbury for the French loaf but that is where you will find it, with all the other Pillsbury canned goods. Delicious, easy, goof proof recipe. I highly recommend it for a regular dinner at home or for a party. Yum!
