Robert's Stromboli

This easy recipe is made with store bought dough from the frozen food section at the grocery store. It is great for parties because it can be made with a variety of fillings. The first time I made it, my friend Robert hugged me and said, "Stromboli! My favorite! You are a wonderful woman!" You don't get higher praise than that -- especially from Robert.


1 package frozen bread dough (4 loaves)

sliced pepperoni
1 cup tomato sauce
1 cup mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

1/2 lb. shaved honey ham
8 oz. shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 tbs. honey Dijon mustard

1 tbs. horseradish sauce
1/2 lb. thinly sliced garlic roast beef
2 Roma tomatoes, sliced thinly

2 tbs. thousand island dressing
1/2 lb. corned beef
1/2 lb. sliced Swiss cheese
1/2 cup sauerkraut, drained

1 egg
2 tbs. water

Thaw bread dough until soft, but not risen. On a lightly floured board, roll each loaf into a 12x16 rectangle. Spread first Stromboli with tomato sauce, top with pepperoni and cheeses. Beginning with the long side, roll jelly-roll style and pinch end to seal. Spread next with mustard and top with ham and cheese. Third roll begins with horseradish sauce, topped with roast beef and fresh tomato. Finally, spread dressing on fourth roll, top with corned beef, cheese, and well-drained sauerkraut. Roll and seal each as you did the first and let rise in a warm place. Before baking, brush on egg wash (one egg beaten with 2 tbs. water) for a glossy crust. Bake on a foil-lined cookie sheet according to package directions, adding 10-15 minutes onto baking time. Watch carefully to prevent burning. Allow Stromboli to cool 10-15 minutes before slicing with a sharp serrated knife. Place slices on a platter for your guests.
