Mix the flour, salt and yeast in a bowl. Pour in the water and oil, knead for approx. 5 mins. to form a soft, elastic dough. Cover and leave to rise at room temperature for approx. 1½ hrs.
Remove the needles from the lower half of the rosemary sprigs, finely chop, knead into the dough along with the air-dried meat, nuts and 50 g of sultanas. Cut the dough into six pieces, shape each piece into a roll, cut off approx. 1/5 for the head. Cut into the lower third of the roll to make the legs and the upper third at the sides to make the arms. Shape the head into a ball and place on top of the body. Place the bread men on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Insert the rosemary sprigs at the arms, use the sultanas for the eyes, mouth and buttons. Cover and leave to rise for a further 30 mins.
Approx. 30 mins. in the lower half of an oven preheated to 200°C. Remove from the oven, allow to cool slightly, leave the bread men to cool completely on a rack.
