Make up the bread dough following pack instructions. Roll out on a lightly floured surface to a rectangle approximately 20 x 45cm.
Scatter the cheese, ham and onion over, then fold up the edges so the filling is enclosed. Roll into a long sausage so it looks like a baguette. Transfer to a lightly oiled tray and leave in a warm place, loosely covered with oiled cling film to puff up a little. It will take about 30 mins.
Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Brush with some oil and cook for 20-30 mins, until puffed up and golden. Allow to cool a little. Heat the pasta sauce in a small pan until hot. Slice the picnic bread. Eat warm or cold, with the tomato sauce for dipping.
Fill this bread with whatever you fancy. Roasted vegetables from a jar and pesto make a lovely vegetarian alternative. Or try sliced olives, a few tbsp of pesto or some chopped basil.
