Baking Success Or Baking Mess


2 cups whole wheat flour
1 (2-1/4 tsp.) envelope Fleischmann's® Quick Rise Yeast
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1/3 cup butter OR margarine
1 egg
1-1/2 to 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
8 slices deli ham, chopped
1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese


Combine whole wheat flour, undissolved yeast, sugar and salt in a large mixer bowl. Heat milk and butter until very warm (120° to 130°F). Add to bowl with egg. Beat for 3 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Gradually add all-purpose flour until dough forms a soft ball. Knead on a lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes. Cover; let dough rest for 10 minutes.

Combine mayonnaise and mustard until smooth. Roll dough into a 16 x 10-inch rectangle on a lightly floured surface. Spread mayonnaise mixture to within 1/2-inch of the edges. Sprinkle with ham and cheese. Roll up tightly from long side. Pinch seams to seal; shape into ring. Place on greased baking sheet. Cut 2/3 through ring at 1-inch intervals. Twist each section sideways. Cover; let rise in warm, draft-free place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

Bake in a preheated 375°F oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until lightly browned. Let cool 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
