  • 500g pack white bread mix
  • plain flour, for dusting
  • 200g mozzarella, grated
  • 10 thin slices ham
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped



    Onions are endlessly versatile and an essential ingredient in countless recipes. Native to Asia…

  • oil, for greasing
  • 8 tbsp ready-made tomato pasta or pizza sauce, to serve


  1. Make up the bread dough following pack instructions. Roll out on a lightly floured surface to a rectangle approximately 20 x 45cm.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
