Brush the top sheet with beaten egg white.  Mound ham mixture on phyllo dough stack, parallel to and about 3 inches from one of the shorter (14" side)  edges of the dough stack.

Fold the 3-inch edge of dough over the ham mixture.  Fold in about 1 and 1/2 inches on each of the longer sides (18" side).  Then roll up the dough stack, beginning with the short end, with the edges underneath.

Make shallow cuts in diagonal criss-cross fashion across the top.

Place roll in 13 x 9 x 2-inch pan.
