1 loaf Rhodes White Bread, thawed to room temperature
Ham & Turkey deli sliced lunchmeat, about 24 pieces each (approx. 5 oz of each)
6 slices Swiss cheese, cut in half


Roll out the thawed bread dough into a large rectangle about 16x20-inches. Using a pizza cutter, cut the dough into twelve pieces (3x4 rows). 

Top each piece of dough with a half slice of Swiss cheese. Pat the lunchmeat with a paper towel if it is extra moist (this helps the bread bake better). Top the cheese with two slices of turkey. Top the turkey with two slices of ham.

Stack all of the pieces of bread, cheese, and lunchmeat on top of each other, creating a tower.

Lay the stack sideways into a greased bread pan. Cover with plastic wrap that has been sprayed with cooking spray and let rise for 30 minutes at room temperature. Alternately let rise in the refrigerator for an hour.

Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 to 30 minutes or until the bread is done where it touches the meat and cheese. Brush the top with butter and serve with powdered sugar and raspberry preserves. Refrigerate any leftovers. Enjoy!
