Tasty, easy and filled with ham, melted cheese and tomato. This dough can be used to make buns, but I like making a large flat bread so I can slice into fingers. This bread is great for lunches, snacks, at parties or dipping in soups. See the Tips for a cheats, quick, rise free option.
These ham, cheese and tomato fingers are great for parties
Preparation Time: 15 minutes (plus time for the dough to rise)
Cooking Time: 50 - 55 minutes
Serves: 1 flat bread, 16 - 18 slices
Ingredients 2 1/2 cups flour
7 g instant yeast
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp oregano
1/2 cup ham, sliced
1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes, cut
3/4 cup cheese (lactose free if required)
3 tbsp olive oil
1 cup water, lukewarm
1/4 cup oil from the sundried tomato jar (or olive oil)
Line a 23cm rectangular baking tray with baking paper.
Whisk the flour, yeast, oregano, salt and sugar in a bowl to combine. Add the water and stir to combine.
Add the ham, sundried tomatoes, 1/2 cup cheese and sundried tomato oil. Stir to combine.
The cheese will melt in the dough and make it extra tasty
Turn the dough out on a lightly floured surface and knead for 10 minutes.
Put the dough into the pan, pushing out the sides so it fits. Set aside in a draught free place to rise until it has doubled in size. Mine took 60 minutes in a cold, closed oven with the light on.
Preheat the oven to 175 degrees.
Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top of the dough. Bake for 50 - 55 minutes until golden brown on top and a skewer comes out clean.
Ready for baking
Turn out the bread on a wire rack to cool slightly.
Slice, serve warm or cold and enjoy!
If you are in a hurry substitute the yeast and water with 1 pale ale beer. Bake once the dough is combined. It gives a slightly different texture, but tastes great.
