Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, shortening, eggs, sugar, salt and 2 cups flour; beat until smooth. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute onion in 2 tblspns of the butter until tender. Add ham and mix well; set aside.
  4. Preheat oven to 350. Punch the dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide into thirds. Roll each portion into a 16x8 inch rectangle. Cut each rectangle into 8 squares. Place a tablespoon of the ham/onion mixture in the center of each square. Add bacon, olives and cheese if using. Fold up corners to center of dough; seal edges.
  5. Place 2 inches apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes. Melt remaining butter and brush over dough. Bake at 350 for 16-20 minutes or until golden brown and filling is heated through. Refrigerate leftovers.
