I didn't know what else to call these since there are so many variations which one could make.
On Tuesday, my family had their annual Christmas party. I made fudge to bring but changed my mind after I left it in the fridge too long and it got kind of dried out and a little too eaten (Mark and the kids were taking pieces which were 4-6 piece serving sizes since I hadn't cut it. It was kind of hard to cut since it had marshmallows in it. Yes, delicious Christmas junk!).
This left me at the last minute trying to decide what to make. A woman at church often makes a ham and cheese loaf but I couldn't find anything online that resembled it. So I made my own version!
I made a loaf sized batch of dough. This would work well with sourdough and I plan to make it when I get my sourdough on the go. A loaf sized batch of bread dough will make three. Divide it into three equal parts.
Roll the dough into either an oval or a rectangle shape. I did it on parchment paper to make it easy to transfer. Then on either side, make about eight slits which are about a third of the width on each side leaving the middle third uncut, which is where you put your toppings of choice (I made a ham and cheese one with a base of mayo and I made a pizza one which had pepperoni, mozza and a base of tomato sauce. Sorry they are sideways, I forgot to rotate them and I'm too lazy to redo it ;) ):
