2. Place the dough in a dish (make sure the surface is sprinkled with flour), cover and leave at room temperature for 45 minutes.

3. Cut the skin off the ham.

4. Grease a tray with some fat and sprinkle flour on top. Put the dough on top and then place the ham on top of the dough. Paste the ham with an egg yolk and sprinkle with flour.

5. Now wrap the ham in the dough. Place in a pre-heated oven (180°C) and then cook for around one hour.
