Main Course – Easy Stromboli

easy stromboli

This isn’t exactly a healthy recipe, but it is yummy and one that the family loves – though I’m sure I don’t make it for them as often as they like. To try and keep this recipe on the healthier side choose real, but lower calorie cheeses and more natural lunch-type meats without added preservatives, coloring’s, phosphates, etc. They will cost a little more, but it’s worth it. If you have children, this is a fun one (and less messy one) to let them help with!

Stromboli

  • Pre-made Pizza Dough
  • Cheese (Try: Provolone, Swiss, Mozzarella) (6-8 oz)
  • Meat (Try: Ham, Hard Salami, Turkey) (6-8 oz)
  • 1 Beaten Egg Yolk
  • Garlic Powder
  • Dried Oregano
  • Dried Parsley

Note: I make two of these to feed my family and there is usually enough left for lunch for the kids the following day.

Instructions:
Preheat oven to 375ᵒ. Get out your dough. If you are able to make your own dough that’s fantastic, but store bought is fine for this. Roll out your dough into a rectangular shape. Put a layer of meat over the entire surface, leaving about an inch of dough showing all the ends and maybe 1/2 an inch at the long sides. Put a layer of cheese over the meat, again leaving room all the way around.

Sprinkle a fine layer of each garlic powder, oregano and parsley, over the cheese.

Roll it up starting at one of the shorter ends. Pinch the ends closed and place it on an oiled baking sheet seam down. Use a brush to paint the entire exposed surface with the egg yolk. Sprinkle a little cheese and seasoning over the top and bake at 375ᵒ for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown all over. Let stand a few minutes before cutting to serve.

For a twist add a marinara sauce or greek yogurt ranch to dip it in!
