Easy Stromboli

Oh, man, you guys. I’ve been the worst blogger ever! We’ve been super busy since school got out.  It seems like every summer it takes a little while for us to get some sort of routine down. How do you handle the school to summer transition?  Luckily, swimming lessons will be over tomorrow (no more lost mornings). Plus, I have quite a few fun projects going that I am so excited to share with you!! But in the meantime, in case you missed it, here’s the yummy Stromboli recipe I shared on Cups by Kim a couple of weeks ago.

Today I’m sharing one of my very favorite recipes.  It’s called Stromboli.  Stromboli is kind of like a rolled up sandwich. There are tons of different ways to make it and this is my favorite way.


Here’s what you’ll need to get started:

stromboli ingredients

This comes together really fast. For the dough, you can use any bread dough you want. If you want something super fast, just use store bought bread dough. I like to make mine homemade. If you need a good recipe, here’s the one I always use. You only need enough bread dough for a single loaf.

Before I assemble the Stromboli, I like to get all of the ingredients ready.

First, chop the onion. You really only need about 1/3 cup of onion. 


Then chop the olives (unless you were smart and bought chopped olives – I didn’t have any on hand).


And slice your tomatoes.


When your ingredients are prepped, it’s time to assemble this bad boy.  Start by rolling your dough into a huge rectangle. Mine was about 17-inches by 15-inches.  It really does not have to be perfect.  It’ll look pretty no matter how uneven your dough rectangle looks, I promise.


Then, layer your ingredients.  I always start with the cheese:


Then add ham:


More cheese:


And a layer of olives and onions:


And finally slices tomatoes:


It’s really easy to roll up your Stromboli.  Just start at one end, and fold it half way in:


Then, fold the other side on top:


Pinch your edges closed. Especially the two short ends, otherwise you’ll have cheese leaking out.


Transfer the Stromboli to a baking sheet.  Meanwhile, beat the egg with a little bit of water.  Then, brush the egg wash all over the outside of the dough.


If you’re having problems with any of the edges staying shut, you can use the egg wash as a glue to hold the edges together.

Finally, sprinkle the basil and oregano all over the top of the Stromboli


Bake the Stromboli at 375 degrees for about 30 minutes.  Then, enjoy!!  This is a great recipe for a crowd. It’s really filling and feeds a lot.
