Ham and Cheddar in a Loaf

Well, yesterday afternoon I decided to change my menu plan...but just a little bit.  Instead of making On-the-Go Pizza Rolls, I decided to make this Ham and Cheddar Loaf.   Similar ingredients...just prepared a different way.
(Not my picture...but from Kraft Foods...mine did look very similar though!  :) )

This great recipe came from a Kraft Food & Family magazine that I used to receive.  (I don't think they send them out anymore, but you can find the great recipes on their website.)
(***Actually, I see you can purchase a subscription....)

I made my loaf with salami instead of ham.

This is how I made it:

Ham and Cheddar Loaf
One recipe pizza dough
*1/2 package salami (approx. 5 oz.)
*1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
*1/4 c. miracle whip
*Parmesan cheese

Roll out dough to a 12 x 10 rectangle.  Lay salami over the dough, overlapping the slices.  Mix miracle whip and cheese together.  "Spread" over the top of the salami.  Starting on the long side of the dough, fold over 1/3 of the dough.  Fold the other third over the top of the first fold.  Pinch edges closed.  Place the loaf, seam sides down, on a greased cookie sheet.  Slice three "vents" across the top of the loaf.  Sprinkle parmesan cheese on top of loaf.  Bake at 350* for 35 - 40 minutes, until golden brown.  Cool 10 minutes before slicing.

For the most part, my family really enjoyed this loaf.  The taste of the miracle whip was a little overpowering for my boys though.  I think next time I might not mix the miracle whip with the cheese, but just spread half of the dough with it before placing the meat on it.

Kraft Foods site offers some tasty variations to the recipe too.
