VARIATIONS on Fillings

Reuben: corned beef, sauerkraut, Thousand Island dressing, Swiss cheese

Breakfast: cooked eggs, cheese and bacon

Pizza: pepperoni and cheese

Turkey, broccoli, and cheese

Possibilities are endless; be creative with the filling


If you don't want to do a ring, you can use bread biscuit dough (Flaky Layers works best, separate each one in half) or french bread dough. With these you can just create a rectangle.
