  • 1 Can of French Bread Loaf
  • 6-8 oz of Ham Slices about 8-12 slices (or turkey)

  1. Preheat Oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Open the can of dough and place it on a floured surface. Roll it into a ball using your hands
  3. With the help of a rolling pin, stretch the dough into a rectangle. If dough shrinks back too much, let it rest for 5 minutes and try again
  4. Place the ham slices side by side inside the rectangle leaving a small border of dough exposed
  5. Sprinkle the olives, raisins and sugar all over the ham making sure that they are all spread out
  6. Roll the dough tightly into a log making sure the seam remains at the bottom
  7. Prick the dough with a fork all over the surface to avoid it puffing up
  8. Place the bread in a cookie sheet on lined with parchment paper
  9. Bake for 10 minutes
  10. Meanwhile, mix the egg yolk and brown sugar in a small bowl
  11. After the 10 minutes are up, brush the egg yolk mixture all over the surface of the bread
  12. Bake for 20 more minutes or until browned
  13. Remove from oven and let cool
