Stromboli for your Superbowl

Easy. Perfect for entertaining. Make a few with extra napkins around- guests may leave drool marks on your table. Substitute optional ingredients like black olives, green peppers, mushrooms- whatever your craving will probably work!

Stromboli  Printable Recipe

Frozen bread dough. Thawed and ready to roll.

Saute onions in pan until soft.

On lightly floured surface, roll out the dough in to a rectangle about 1/4″ thick.

Sad dough ready to be a superhero Stromboli

Roll it. Shape it. Stretch it.

Mix olive oil butter and garlic together.

Brush dough with garlic/butter mixture.

Mix italian seasoning with cheese.

Sprinkle 1/4 cup of cheese over dough and lay down the ham. (I have the scariest, old-lady hands...ignore scary hands.)

Scatter your sauteed onions about.

Add your optional ingredients. Me, I’m just doing red peppers today. Sometimes I feel really wild and sassy and throw black olives or sauteed mushrooms in the mix.

We're building a house of stromboli, brick by brick.

Now  more meat.

Salami meet Ham and Cheese/Onion.

Anndddd more cheese and onions.

This is it folks, the grand finale layer....ohhhhh it's time to roll.

Now channel some B.B. King and Laissez les bons temps rouler. (Let the good times roll. See 5 years of french back in middle/high school. Mrs. Smith would be so proud. I know six other words as well.)

We're rolling. We're rolling.

Keep rolling. Not too tight or your Stromboli will split and spill its guts during baking. Not pretty.

As you roll forward, Lift Up the roll so that the ingredients don't just keep pushing forward and wind up on your counter.

As you get to the end, you’ll have a seam. Fold the end edges under as well. Use the lightly beaten egg white to seal it. Transfer, gently, your rolled perfection to your prepared pan. (Prepared pan= baking sheet sprinkled with cornmeal.) Brush the whole kit and kaboodle with the egg white.

Brush the stromboli with egg white.

Sprinkle with a little kosher salt and some fresh ground pepper and send it on its way to your 400 degree oven.

Bake at 400 degrees for about 25 minutes or until the top is golden brown. When it comes out of the oven, give it a nice brush of olive oil.

Let it cool a bit before you slice in to it. Restraint.

Now slice it up and serve it.  Be ready with print-outs of the recipe- it’s a common request once its been sampled!

Gooey. Greasy. Melty. Goodness. Have napkins ready.

A thing of beauty lasts about 30 seconds before devouring occurs.

Enjoy!  Off to shovel the rest of our snow-day snow-fall. Stay warm and good luck to whomever you’re rooting for in the Superbowl!
