Rolled bread of Parma ham, cheese, egg & basil | AppleCore Foods


A real crowd pleaser at picnics with Beretta Parma ham!


1 basic bread recipe

5 slices Beretta Parma ham

8 large eggs, boiled

200gr cheese (a mixture of Cheddar and Parmesan)

Fresh basil

Sun-dried tomatoes

Extra virgin olive oil

Sea salt

Freshly ground black pepper


1. Proceed through the basic bread recipe. Shape the dough into a long rectangle about 1cm thick.

2. Along the middle of the bread, lay out your Parma ham, eggs, cheese, basil and tomatoes. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and season with pepper and a pinch of salt.

3. Pull the dough over the filling so it forms what looks like a cannelloni shape. Then bring one end round to the other so that they join up. Pinch and pat the two ends together firmly to form a doughnut-shaped loaf.

4. Allow the dough to prove for 15 minutes on a flour-dusted baking tin. Place in a preheated oven at 180ºC for 35 minutes and bake until golden. Serve warm or cool.
