  ...This French style loaf can be made from start to finish in a
  little over an hour.  It's a hearty loaf that is delicious sliced and
  lightly toasted and served with soups, stews, and salads...
  
  generous grinding of black pepper
  
  1.  Place the yeast in a large mixing bowl.  Mix in the warm water and
  honey and set aside in a warm spot for about 10 minutes, or until the
  yeast is dissolved and begins bubbling. (If the yeast does not bubble
  it is probably dead. Begin again, using fresh yeast.) Gradually sift
  the flour and salt into the yeast mixture, stirring constantly until
  the dough begins to pull away from the sides of the bowl.
  
  2.  Sprinkle some flour over a working surface and gently knead the
  dough for several minutes.  Cut the dough in half and roll out one
  half into a rectangle (like a rectangular pizza) about 14 inches by
  10 inches. Brush the dough with 1 1/2 tablespoons of the olive oil.
  Scatter half the ham over the surface, pressing it gently into the
  dough.. Sprinkle half the cheese on top and scatter half the herbs
  and a generous grinding of fresh black pepper over the dough. Using
  your hands, gently roll the dough lengthwise, into the shape of a
  long cigar. Lightly seal the edges of the dough.  Place in a
  well-greased French bread pan (or on a well-greased cookie sheet) and
  cover with a clean tea towel.
  
  3.  Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  
  4.  Make the second loaf.  Place the two loaves of bread in a dry
  warm spot and let the sit, covered, for
       15    minutes.
  
  5.  Just before baking, lightly brush the loaves with the remaining 1
  tablespoon of olive oil.  Place in the middle shelf of the hot oven
  and bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until the bread has a golden brown
  crust and sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom.
  
  Serves 8.  Makes 2 loaves.
