Recipe for Easter ham in bread dough


  • 3 shallots
  • 2 kilograms of cured pork roast
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 juniper berries
  • 2 teaspoons of black pepper
  • Finished bread mix for a crust bread
  • Flour to the working of the dough
  • 4 tsp mustard


  1. Peel and dice the shallots.
  2. Put the bay leaves, the juniper berries and the black pepper in a large saucepan with the pork roast.
  3. Add enough water to cover the roast.
  4. Cover and simmer for about 1.5 hours.
  5. In the meantime, mix the baking mixture with water and - if specified in the recipe supplement - let go.
  6. After the cooking time, lift the Easter ham out of the water and allow it to cool well.
  7. Lay out a tin with baking paper and flour.
  8. Knead the dough again and then roll out on the plate.
  9. The dough should be about half a centimeter thick and at least twice as big as the ham roast.
  10. Put the cooled and dry roast on the dough and rub in all around with mustard.
  11. Now brush the edges of the dough sheet with a little water.
  12. Finally, beat the roast in the dough, pressing the edges particularly well.
  13. Let the pastry rest for half an hour.
  14. Bake at 200 degrees for about an hour until a crispy crust of bread has formed.
