Stromboli

Tonight I threw together a quick dinner that everyone eats. Did you read that? EVERYONE. It’s a dinnertime miracle.

It requires just a little forethought, but is really easy to throw together and bake up in time for dinner.

Here’s what you need:

1 THAWED loaf of frozen Rhodes bread dough (I don’t recommend the store brand on this one; Rhodes is much better. Not a paid endorsement.)
Some kind of lunchmeat – it’s always deli-sliced or shaved turkey around here
Cheese of your liking. We usually have a combo of two or more of the following: parmesan, provolone, monterey jack, cheddar.
A little bit of mustard or mayo or Ranch dressing or any kind of spread for a little flavor

Follow package directions for thawing the bread dough. When it’s thawed and risen, roll it out into a 16×12 rectangle (total approximation). Spread dressing in a thin layer over the dough, and then layer with cheese and meat. Roll up starting with a long side, and pinch the seam closed. Put on a lightly-greased baking sheet. Bake at 375 for 25-ish minutes. I often pull it out at 15 minutes and cut it in half to be sure the inside dough all gets cooked.

As you can see, pretty much anything you find in your fridge is fair game when you’re putting it in bread dough like this!

    Yep! Love this! I make it with ham, salami, and provolone. It’s great to make for our family birthday parties, too!

    Just an FYI – My sisters and I were just talking about this the other day at the campout – Kris wanted to make this and didn’t have the bread dough on hand so she used 2 cans of biscuits – rolled out. She said that it worked pretty good….. so if you find yourself in a pinch – might give it a try! 🙂
