Step 1: The Bread

First I get a loaf of frozen bread dough and thaw it.  Once thawed according to package directions, I roll it out on a greased cookie sheet.

Step 2: The Toppings

I add a layer of cheese down the middle.  Then I top it off with a layer of ham.

Step 3: The Braid

I cut diagonal slits in the sides of the bread dough.  I take the bottom section of bread and braid it over.  I braid the other side making an "x".  Then I keep braiding the dough until the ham and cheese are mostly covered.

Step 4: Baking

I bake it in the oven at 350 for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.  Let it cool slightly, cut into strips, and enjoy!
