Strudel Loaf

This totally delish strudel loaf came to me by way of my sweet sister Diane. I have used this as a trusty meal for new moms for years, it is been a winner every time!

Melt in microwave
1 C warm water
1/4 C Dijon mustard
2 Tbl butter

Mix in Bosch
3-4 C flour
2 tbl sugar
2 tbl yeast
1/2 tea salt (reserve until the very end)

Filling - 1/2 lb peppered or smoked turkey. 1/2 lb baby swiss or provolone.

Knead dough in mixer for 5 minutes. Roll dough out on well floured counter into a rectangular shape approx 8x12 in size (nearly the size of a cookie sheet pan...but smaller). Slather mayo along the center of the dough lengthwise. Layer meat/cheese/meat/cheese/meat cheese and season wiht lemon paper and seasoning salt. Using scissors cut into the sides of dough at an angle, 2 inches deep and 2 inches apart all the way down the sides of dough. Then criss cross the strips of dough alternating across the meat and cheese and pinch down slightly. Fold in the ends and prevent seeping cheese while it bakes.

Bake at 350 30-40 minutes until golden brown. Brush melted butter on top, slice into 2 inch slices and serve warm.
