The other day I told Hubby I was in a slump and couldn’t think of something to make that we hadn’t had in a awhile.  He quickly said, “Stromboli”.  It’s a recipe I can’t make without a little lead time as in involves making bread dough.  I waited a day or two and then it rained so I knew Hubby would be in for a normal time supper…not the 9 pm time we’ve been eating at lately.

Well this is Stromboli…


If you haven’t had it before it’s yummy.  It’s a bread with toppings baked inside.  It is simple to make.  I use my bread ratio to make the bread but honestly if you used your own bread recipe or even frozen dough from the freezer section you’ll be just fine.  Here’s a link to my bread ratio recipe.  For this I made a 2 1/2 cup of water ratio.

After I make the dough, I let it rise once.  Punch it down, roll it out and add toppings.  We do all sort of things….chicken alfredo..taco…chicken and broccoli…Tonight it’s meat lovers.  We have two different hams and hamburger-Campbell’s Fiesta Cheese soup for the “sauce” and pepper jack cheese.

Then just roll it up like cinnamon rolls and put it on you pan.  Bake for about 25 minutes at 350 degrees until the crust is golden brown.  Once out of the oven, butter the crust and let sit for 5 minutes.  Slice and eat.

This is a real family favorite around here.  I love that the toppings can change making it always taste just a little bit different.

  1. When you say “ratio”, what are the two ingredients in the ratio? Is it the water versus the sugar and oil? Or is it the yeast versus the water, sugar, and oil? Do you always use 3 T. yeast to start with? For instance, for one pizza crust you use 3 T. yeast? I made bread yesterday, 2 T. yeast for six loaves.

  2. I made this a fews ago after not making it for a long, long time. I percut the filling “stuff” the night before and used a store bought pizza crust. It worked out great and I had dinner on the table quickly after work! I’m planning on making it tonight after I get home from quilt club.

  3. After seeing some of your recipes, I’m tempted to get my oven fixed. It’s been years since I’ve been able to bake. The pictures you post make my mouth water. Thanks for sharing.

  5. I used to love the stromboli from an Italian restaurant back in the early ’80s, but I had no idea how it was made. Theirs had a garlicky beef and maybe mushrooms in it and cheese and came with some kind of gravy. It was messy to eat, but oh so good! That place went out of business long ago and I’ve never seen it anywhere since.
