Stromboli with the Hanken’s

My daughter Kelli sent me some pictures from her house the other day.  She and the kids were busy making supper.  It was Stromboli night.

If you aren’t familiar with Stromboli, it starts as a bread dough rolled out.  You put toppings on the dough and then roll it up like cinnamon rolls, put the whole roll in the oven to bake, and then once it’s out of the oven, it’s cut into slices and served like this…


You can find my recipe HERE.

This is likely in the top 10 of the favorite foods that I make.

Today, Kelli was taking a short cut and not making the dough from scratch.  You can use pizza dough from the tube or bread dough from the freezer.

Here Georgia is …concentrating on getting it rolled out.

The boys in their cute little aprons want to help too.

You can put whatever toppings you want in the stromboli.  We pick our favorite pizza toppings or whatever there is around that needs to be cleaned up.

On this day Kelli was making a Philly Cream Cheese version.

Kelli had to give some toppings to the boys to try to keep them from eating directly from the dough.

All three of the kids love being part of what is going on no matter what the task is.  Baking and cooking is proving to be especially a favorite!

If you missed my earlier link to the recipe, you can find my recipe HERE.

Do you make stromboli at your house??  Is it something you think your family might like?  I’ve been making since all the kids were home and I often get a request, especially for birthday suppers to make it.

  1. No, I have never made stromboli but I do like it. The kiddos are such little dolls and I like the way Kelli includes them with whatever she is making or doing. Georgie is one photogenic little beauty!!

  2. I’m 73 yo, and have had Stromboli once in my life. That was back in the early 70’s and my co-workers were ordering take out from a pizza place and the suggested getting a Stromboli. It was good, I liked it. But I can’t think of any other place that had it on their menu in town. As for me making it, it was more work than I wanted to do for just me. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I’ve never heard of Stromboli, it’s not something that’s made here in Australia, not as far as I know anyway, but I think I’ll look at your recipe and give it a go, it looks yummy, wonderful for having with soup.

  4. I love stromboli but when I do get it, there’s more crust than insides! Will have to try your recipe! SOunds yummy!
    Love and prayers

  5. I love reading the comments and seeing where people are sending greetings from. So fun. I have a frame very similar to those 2 you got that stand up. I’ll be watching for how you use them. I would love a stash busting stitch along. Sounds very stress free and hopefully soon I’ll have my scraps all organized as per your example. I would have liked to have seen a better picture of the quilt that was made of all the little blocks with some sort of negative space block. It was one of the last ones. Blessings from blustery West Michigan!

  6. yo have an interesting way of making Stromboli. I have never heard of it rolled like a sweet roll. For me, it more like a turnover made with pizza dough. And like a calzone. One has sauce within. The other does not. I can never remember which is which.
