Stromboli {Step-by-Step}

I basically “created” this recipe when I didn’t have anything planned. I had some sausage I needed used up and some dough in the fridge. The idea of a sort of lunch roll came to mind and I just started making it without much thought, and hoping it wouldn’t be so gross that my family couldn’t choke it down.

Thankfully the thing turned out pretty dang good! It also turns out that the thing is an actual thing. It is called Stromboli. It sounds fancy, and tastes like a lot of work was put into it, but it was sooooo easy!

Here’s how I did it.

It took about ten minutes of work, 20 minutes to rise, and 30 minutes to bake. It was GORGEOUS, and tasted FABULOUS!

Here’s the recipe:

Stromboli {Step-by-Step}

Serving Size: 4


  • 1 lb. of sandwich bread dough
  • 3 large sausages of choice, 6-8 slices of sandwich meat, or any other meat you enjoy
  • 1 1/2 cups Parmesan cheese or other cheese
  • 1 egg


  • Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Roll the dough out into a 10"x9" rectangle. In the middle third of the dough lay out the meat. Sprinkle the meat with cheese. Pull over one side of the dough so it covers the filling and pinch it shut. Pull the other side over and pinch to seal. Tuck under the edges and place on a cookie sheet lined with a silpat. Beat the egg, and brush it all over the stromboli to give it a nice gloss. Let rest 20 minutes before baking for 30 minutes. Serve hot.

  1. Wonderful tutorial ! I invite you to share this yummines at the Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop ( link up through Sat) Hugs!

  2. I had heard of stromboli before but didn’t know what it was until I saw this yesterday. We had it for dinner last night using what I had around the house – leftover breakfast sausage crumbles, sauteed onions and spinach w/ minced garlic, parmesan and mozzarella cheeses. Definitely a meal I will repeat with many variations. Thank you for the inspiration!

    My 2 year old thanks you also. Any meal that lets her make (eat) dough and dip her food in ranch dressing is a winner.
