For those of you who have never had Stromboli…You Must! It’s a family favorite (thank you Aunt Judy) and one of the recipes that won my husbands heart when we were dating 😛 It’s quick, simple, and delicious. The best part of Stromboli is you can add your favorite meats and cheese to make it all your own (or just whatever is in your fridge).

Prep: 5 minutes

Cook: 26-30 minutes


  • 1 tube (11 oz) refrigerated french bread
  • 6 oz thinly sliced deli black forest ham
  • 6 green onions, sliced
  • 8 bacon strips cooked and crumbled (I use Costco’s microwaveable bacon)
  • 1 1/2 cups (6 oz) Swiss cheese, shredded or sliced

*variations: pepperoni, Canadian bacon, smoked Swish cheese, peppered turkey, olives, etc.


Unroll dough on a greased baking sheet. Place ham over dough to within 1/2 inch of edges; sprinkle evenly with onions, bacon and cheese. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side. Pinch seams to seal and tuck ends under. Place seam side down on baking sheet. Use a knife to cut several 1/4 inch deep slits on top of loaf. Bake at 350F for 26-30 minutes or until golden brown. Serve hot out of the oven.

Yields: we fed 4 people with the Stromboli and a Caesar salad and had two pieces of Stromboli left over

Happy Eating 🙂
