I haven't eaten stromboli for 4 years...FOUR YEARS! Yet, I still remember how good it is, and it definitely lived up to everything that I remembered. Basically it is a rolled up sandwich or pizza, depending on what you put inside. My FAVORITE is simply a cheesy garlic roll, it is absolutely divine, I urge you all to make at least half a loaf of this recipe, then go crazy on the other half.. Cody preferred having his stuffed to the brim with as much filling as possible, but really, just use your imagination when filling your own. (Some do ham and cheese with a dressing filling, others a pepperoni pizza...)O, and P.S. I TOTALLY cheated when I made this recipe this time...I used pre-made Rhodes loaf frozen bread. I hate to admit it, but it was delicious and much simpler! 

From: Amanda

2 ½ cups lukewarm water

2 tsp. yeast

1 Tbs. salt

3 Tbs. sugar

3 Tbs. vegetable oil

6 cups flour


Dissolve yeast in water, add remaining ingredients, let sit for 20 minutes knead for 2-3 minutes. Divide dough in half, let sit 10 minutes. Roll each out into a rectangle.


Rhodes Frozen Loaf dough

Thaw 1 loaf of bread by following package directions. Divide dough in half. Roll each out into a rectangle.


Cheesy Garlic filling:

2 egg yolks(save whites for topping)

1 Tbs. oil

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 tsp. pepper

3/4 cup mozzarella


Mix together and brush evenly over one rectangle. This one is great as a "side dish" to your more filling roll.

Alfredo Deluxe filling:

1/3 cup Alfredo Sauce

1 piece boiled, shredded chicken

3 slices turkey bacon, cooked and chopped

1/8 cup canadian bacon, cooked

3/4 cup mozzarella

Spread other rectangle with Alfredo sauce. Top with chicken, turkey bacon, canadian bacon, and mozzarella.

Roll rectangle lengthwise and pinch together at seam. Place seam down on a greased 9x13 cookie sheet. Tuck ends under to prevent fillings coming out during baking. Both rolls can be placed on the same baking sheet. Top generously with egg whites, garlic salt, and oregano. Cook rolls together at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

Serves 4. (AT LEAST!)

I've actually never had stromboli, and didn't even know what it was!
Now I do, and now I want it.

I made this for dinner yesterday and it was SO good. I'd never had it before. I think it may just be a new fav of mine. The hubby liked it too. Thanks for the great recipe!
