Baking Notes

Cooked ground sausage can be substituted for the ham and bacon.

Make It A Freezer Meal

Complete the recipe up to step 6. Cover the casserole and freeze it.

When ready to bake, place frozen casserole in preheated oven uncovered. Bake at 350 for 1 1/2 – 2 hours.

    Many years ago there was a recipe for a ham & swiss roll using a thawed but not baked bread loaf. The ham & swiss was layered down the middle. Cut in strips or just folded over?
    Did the dough have to rise?
    Will you please find this recipe & publish on this site. Thank you.

      Thanks for your question! Where did you see this recipe. I have looked through our recipe collection and do not find a recipe like this. Sometimes people think the recipe is Rhodes but many times they just use our product. You may find a similar recipe on Pinterest or another recipe site. But I can answer your question about raising.You would just need to thaw the loaf of dough and then let it rise after adding your ingredients. Sorry I cannot help you much!
