Ploughman's Picnic Loaf

Use a loaf with a good crust. Cut the top off to create a lid and empty out the crumbs (save for use in another recipe).

Spread the whole inside with salad cream and layer in baby gem lettuce leaves, sliced cucumber and tomatoes, sliced boiled egg, grated cheddar and smoked ham, sprinkling baby pickled onions or dolloping good chutney between each layer, until full.

Pop the top on, then slice and serve.
