Stuffed Bread!

The other day I made the best stuffed bread! It was my first time making stuffed bread so it was a trial run. I got it from my favorite website, notwithoutsalt. It turned out REALLY good. I need to make it one more time to perfect it, but other than that it was absolutely amazing! First you make a simple bread which it 5:3, five parts flour to 3 parts water. Add about 2-3 tsp. of yeast and a touch of salt. I made the bread and then put it in a oiled bowl until it doubled in size. Then I punched the dough and floured to surface and made it into a rough rectangle.

For the yummy goodness inside you will need:
1/2lb sliced ham or turkey either one will work
5 hard boiled eggs, peeled
1 1/2 cups of cheese(mozzarella, Parmesan, etc.)
5-7 fresh basil leaves
1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes
olive oil

After you have made the rough rectangle place the ham down in the middle, place the sun dried tomatoes, basil leaves and then the cheese. place the eggs on top of it all and pour a little olive oil over the whole thing. Then take the ends and edges and press them together like a big burrito. Place on a greased baking sheet and then form it into a circle by pinching the two ends together. Brush the top with butter. Cover the stuffed bread with a clean towel and let raise while the oven is preheating to 350. When the oven is preheated place the bread in the oven for about 35 min. or until golden on top!

Cut into it and enjoy! Your can eat it for lunch or dinner. You can also take it to a party for a great finger food!
