“This is a very quick fix, 5-10 min prep, 30 minutes in the oven. Kids love it. I add ranch dressing for additional flavor. I use real bacon bits to save time. You can substitute the cheese of your choice. I have used American, Mild Cheddar and Mozzarella. I have experimented with adding scrambled eggs for a brunch. You can also use the french bread idea for pizza pockets and much more. The possibilities are endless.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (11 ounce) packagerefrigerated French bread dough
  • 6 ounces thinly sliced deli ham
  • 6 green onions, sliced (optional)
  • 8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
  • 1 12 cups shredded swiss cheese
  • 2 -4 tablespoons ranch dressing (optional)


  1. Unroll dough on a lightly greased baking sheet. Place ham on dough, don't go all the way to the edge, leave about a 1/4 to 1/2 inch; spread Ranch Dressing over the ham; sprinkle evenly with onions, bacon and cheese. Roll up jelly-roll style, start with the long side. Pinch edges to seal and tuck the ends under. Place the seam side down on the baking sheet.
  2. Cut several slits on top of the loaf (about 1/4 in deep). Bake at 350°F for 26-30 minutes until golden brown. Cool a bit before slicing.
