Havarti and Smoked Ham Bubble Bread

Makes 12 Servings.


  • 1 loaf (16 oz.) frozen bread dough, thawed
  • 1 cup (4 oz.) flavored havarti cheese, shredded
  • 2 oz. smoked ham, finely chopped
  • 3 Tbsp. butter, melted


Preheat oven to 375°F.

Roll or pat dough into 12-inch circle; sprinkle cheese and ham over top. Knead, turning dough 10 to 12 times to blend ingredients. Divide dough into 24 balls; roll each in melted butter. Place 12 balls in 9-inch tube pan, in even layer about 1/4 inch apart; repeat with remaining dough balls to make a second layer. Cover; let rise for 1 hour or until doubled in bulk.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown. Release from pan, running knife around sides. Transfer bread to wire rack. Cool slightly; serve warm.
