Healthy Humpday – Stromboli

Posted In: Healthy Humpday

Ohio State Homecoming weekend and another great opportunity to tailgate before the game! This week we decided to make Strombolis, easy to make delicious dough-enrobed beat and cheese packets. Once baked and sliced, Strombolis are great handheld “sandwiches” that easily feed a family, school lunch, or on a game day, a huge crowd! Round out to make a meal with a salad or your favorite side ( maybe some crispy zucchini chips!)

Ingredients (Makes one Stromboli)

stromboli ingredients

  • 1 can crescent dough (regular or low fat)
  • 6 oz deli meat (turkey, ham, hard salami, etc.)
  • 6 oz deli sliced cheese
  • 2 tbsp sandwich spread (cream cheese, garlic spread, dijon mustard, ranch dressing) – optional

Let’s Make Strombolis!

  1. Unroll a tube of crescent dough onto a foil coated baking sheet with cooking spray.
  2. If desired, spread 2 tbsp of cream cheese, mustard, dijon, or dressing down the center of the dough.
  3. Layer meat, either one variety or a combination of meats on top of the dough/dressing.
  4. Layer slices of cheese on top of meat.
  5. Using kitchen scissors, make slits on side of dough, 2 inches apart, creating strips.
  6. Overlap dough strips across top of cheese, creating a braided look.
  7. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  8. Slice into 2 inch wedges and serve
