Amy's Cheesy Broccoli Ham Sandwich

I just made this for lunch today and it was so good I wanted to share it! I made bread using Amy's bread machine recipe but you can also use frozen bread dough (if you're smart enough to get it out early enough to let it thaw and rise). It seemed easier to make fresh dough from scratch.
Once the dough has risen once turn it out on the counter (I use 2 silicone baking sheets on top of counter) and then let it rest for 10 minutes (or else the dough fights back when you go to roll it). Roll it as thin as possible (mine was about 14 inches by 26 inches). I brushed the dough with horseradish mustard (but Amy's recipe doesn't call for it). Then top half the dough with 2 cups finely chopped ham, 3 cups shredded cheese, and 1 package frozen broccoli (thawed). Fold the naked half of the dough over the filling and turn the edge to seal. Bake for about 30 minutes in a 350 degree oven.

Janet forgot to mention brushing the top of the dough with melted butter and then sprinkling poppy or sesame seeds on top. It just kind of looks pretty.

hmmm.... forgot to write that down when I called you. I just cut slits in the top dough layer in a pattern.
