Prosciutto Bread

Our Little Family celebrated our Christmas this past weekend.
We will be traveling through the Holiday so we wanted to celebrate in our home with the new traditions we are starting for our family.  Some of our traditions are new, some of them are old. 
So Friday night we had a Christmas Eve dinner.  I made schnitzel and vegetables and prosciutto bread.  All of it was wonderful and it felt wonderful to cook a big meal for my little family and sit down at the table together and and celebrate our most favorite season. 

I loved the dinner food, but for me the star of the show was the bread.  It was ridiculously easy and tasted as good as it looked.  We snapped a few pictures.  I am disappointed I didnt get the really good final picture, but I hope they will at least give you the idea.  We love bread in our house... If you do too you should not miss out on trying this recipe sometime.

Prosciutto Bread
adapted from Food Network Magazine
1 tube refrigerated French Bread Dough
1 package (8-10 slices) prosciutto
Ground black pepper
Olive Oil
Preheat oven to 375
Unroll the french bread dough onto counter sprinkled with flour
Use rolling pin to flatten it out just a bit
Use pepper grinder to sprinkle surface with pepper
Cover surface of dough with slices of prosciutto
Starting on one end of the dough tightly roll the dough up to form it back into a long cylinder
On a parchment paper lined baking sheet place the dough in a circle and press the ends together well so they will not seperate.
Bake 20 minutes then remove, coat in olive oil, and bake 5 minutes more.
