Ham and Cheese Stromboli

How to make Ham and Cheese Stromboli Recipe
Pin It

Wow, this dish turned out to be a huge hit!  I knew my husband would like it , but you can never be sure what is going to be a success with kids.  It's like throwing the dice, one day they like ham and cheese, the next day they don't.  Last week my daughter told me she wanted ketchup and mustard only on her sandwich, no meat or cheese!  I gave it to her and laughed to myself as I waited for her to ask for something else; but she ate it and said it was good...  Yuck!

So, I made the Stromboli and took off on a walk.  (We have had a week of clouds and rain, so I wanted to take advantage of the beautiful evening.  I love daylight savings time!)  When I got home, they had left me one measly little slice and the kids were begging for a third helping!

Here is how I made the Ham and Cheese Stromboli.

Refrigerated pizza dough (of course you can make your own)
Honey mustard
Cheese (whatever you have on hand that sounds good.)
Garlic powder
onion powder
1 tbp milk
Corn meal (optional)
italian herb blend (optional)
Parmesan cheese (optional)

Grease a large rectangular cookie sheet.  Roll out your dough on the sheet and brush on a light coat of Honey Mustard.  Sprinkle with garlic and onion powder.

Layer the ham evenly across the dough.  I used leftover holiday ham from the freezer.  It was kind of thick, so I broke it into bite size pieces.  If you are using thin sliced deli meat, you can just lay it out in sheets.

Sprinkle shredded cheese on top.  as little or as much as you want.  I just used what I had in the fridge, which was a little Monterrey/Colby jack mix, mozzarella and just a touch of sharp cheddar.

Starting at one end, just roll the Stromboli up like a burrito.  Brush milk over the top of the dough (I just used my fingers) sprinkle with corn meal, garlic powder, Parmesan cheese and Italian spices (all optional).  Using a knife, cut small slits on top of the Stromboli to remove pressure when cooking.  Cook at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes.  After 20 minutes, you may want to cover it with foil to prevent further browning and cook for another 5 to 15 minutes.

This is what it looked like out of the oven.

Yum, Enjoy!
