Baked Sandwich

A friend talked me into sharing this recipe with you, and honestly I really don't know what it's called.  So at our house it's just called the baked sandwich, or sometimes we call it the giant hot pocket.  It's super easy, something the whole family enjoys, and easy to pair with soup or vegetables. 

  • Frozen bread dough (or you can make your own dough)
  • Meat and cheese of your choice
  • 1 egg
Well, lets get started...

About mid-day, take out the rolls to thaw and rise (loaves are easier to work with, but today I had rolls.)  Cover with plastic wrap, sprayed with non-stick cooking spray to prevent drying.


Once the rolls have risen, usually by the end of the day, take them out and work out the air bubbles.  Shape it into a ball or rectangle and start rolling.


Aim to roll the dough into a large rectangle; then fill with the meat and cheese of your choice down the center of the dough.  If you're wanting to be super healthy, throw in some veggies as well.  Or you can make this a vegetarian dish.  Experiment with it, and have fun! 

Once it's filled slice the dough on both sides into strips.   

Once you have your strips, start from the top and fold a strip from one side to the other while alternating sides.  Basically you'll take the top strip from the right side, fold it over your filling to the left side, pinch it to the dough, and repeat the process but this time from the left to the right.  Pinch the ends closed, but I like to pinch all the openings closed.  You'll end up with a braided look.


In a bowl, mix one egg with a little bit of water.  Brush the egg wash on the top, sides, and ends of the sandwich.  This will give it a glossy sheen after it's baked. 

Pop that bad boy in the oven at 350  for 30 minutes, and your done! 


Give the sandwich a chance to cool a bit before slicing.  If you cut into it right away the juices will run all over.  I hope you enjoy this!
