Directions

  1. Directions 
  2. Preheat the oven to 375°F.
  3. Pour the milk into a food processor and add the yeast and sugar. Pulse one or two times then add the oil, cheese, pepper, salt and enough of the flour to make a ball of dough that is not sticky.
  4. Place in a bowl, cover and let rise until double in size.
  5. Punch down and roll into an 11 x 16 inch rectangle.
  6. Fill with overlapping slices of the salame, ham, cheese, egg and tomatoes.
  7. With a long edge facing you, roll up like a jellyroll and cut into 1-inch thick slices. Place on a parchment-lined 9 x 13 inch baking pan; you will need two pans. Cover and let rise 30 minutes.
  8. Brush the tops with the beaten egg yolk and sprinkle with salt.
  9. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until nicely browned. Cool on racks.
