Stromboli – this is always a huge hit wherever I take it
9 oz warm water
1 packet or 1 Tbsp instant yeast
2 Tbsp butter or margarine or olive oil
2 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1/3 cup dry milk powder
3 cups flour
Meat and cheese – here are some of our favorite combinations:
Pepperoni and mozzarella and cheddar cheeses, served with pizza or spaghetti sauce for dipping
1 Cubed chicken breast, cooked with 2 cloves of minced garlic, and Italian blend of cheeses
Turkey and bacon crumbles and mozzarella or colby cheese
Ham and cheddar
Dissolve yeast in water, add butter or margarine or oil. Then add the dry ingredients and mix well. Let rise.
Punch down and roll out into a big rectangle about 14″ by 8.” Sprinkle with cheese, then layer on meat, then sprinkle a little more cheese. Roll up jelly roll style, sealing all edges and ends so cheese cannot ooze. Place on baking sheet (I usually have to place it diagonally so it will fit) and let rise a second time.
Bake in a 375 degree oven. I start checking it at about 20 minutes, but sometimes it takes as long as 30 minutes. Slice and serve warm.
