  • Cast Iron Loaf Pan


  • 1 lb bread dough loaf; thawed (I used Rhodes Bread Dough)
  • 2 tbsp butter unsalted; melted
  • 12 Swiss cheese slices
  • 12 ham slices
  • 12 turkey slices
  • cup powdered sugar
  • cup raspberry jam


  • Spray Cast Iron Bread pan with butter spray. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • On a floured surface roll the dough into a 12″ by 20″ rectangle. Slice the dough lengthwise into 3 (4″) strips. Brush dough with melted butter. Cut dough crosswise into 8 (2″) strips to make 24 (2″ by 4″) rectangles.
  • Assemble by layering. Dough, cheese, ham then dough, cheese, turkey. Repeat until the bread pan has been filled. Cover and let rise for 1 hour.
  • Bake for 35 minutes. At the 17 minute mark, cover with aluminum foil so bread doesn’t burn.
  • Top with powdered sugar and have raspberry jam for a dipping side.

    I have to try this!!!!! I love that it isn’t battered and dripping in grease…..only oozing in butter and that is a-ok in my book! Thanks!

    The taste was good but it was a bit time consuming for what the final result was. That being said it was delicious and the melted cheese tasted fantastic.
