Easy Stromboli

Here is one last easy weeknight meal for you.  The only hard part is remembering to put your bread out in the morning long enough to unthaw and rise.  The possibilities are endless with the fillings for these. I have a list of "stuffers" for these strombolis...

-Broccoli, cooked and diced chicken, and cheese dipped in Alfredo sauce
-Ground beef seasoned with taco seasoning, mexican blend cheese, olives, green onions, and cilantro dipped in salsa
-Precooked meatballs, mozzarella, italian seasonings, and parmesan dipped in marinara

Use your imagination!  
 This stromboli is fabulous dipped in this marinara sauce.  

Easy Stromboli

4 loaves frozen white bread, thawed
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 lb. shaved deli ham
1/2 lb. salami, sliced
1/2 lb. pepperoni, sliced (I like to use sandwich pepperoni)
1/2 lb. provolone, slice thin
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
Spices: garlic powder, Italian blend spice, oregano, basil, parsley, rosemary, red pepper flakes. (Use what you like in the amounts that you like)
1-2 eggs, beaten
additional Parmesan to sprinkle on top

Let bread dough rise until doubled. Roll each into 12 X 15 inch rectangles. Sprinkle 1/2 cup mozzarella down the center of the bread. Arrange 1/4 of all of the meats and provolone over the mozzarella. Sprinkle with Parmesan and spices. Roll up, jelly roll style, tucking ends and sealing seams. Repeat with remaining loaves of bread and ingredients. Place seam side down on 2 greased baking sheets. Brush with beaten egg and sprinkle with additional Parmesan. Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes, until golden brown. Let stand 5 minutes before slicing. Serve with pizza sauce.
