Stromboli

Hi! I hope you enjoy this post today! This week is a little light because I am starting the celebration of Mr. FeistyEats 40th(!) birthday. He is 40 years young today. We are celebrating by going out for pizza and drinks with some friends. I have been doing little things all week to help him celebrate and future posts will reflect what I have done, or made for him. I can’t believe he is 40! I also can’t wait to help him celebrate tonight and next weekend when we stay a weekend away. Onto the post…

Have you ever eaten Stromboli? Or made it? Or even heard of it? According to Wikipedia.com, Stromboli is a type of turnover filled with various cheeses, Italian meats or vegetables. My Mom has been making us this good, good food for years. Ever since she has had her bread machine, which has been a long time. I’m not sure what started her with the Stromboli but it is good. She made it for us one night when we were over visiting and I took a few photos to show you the process. Like pizza, you could use any fillings or cheese you like.

Start with your pizza dough. Homemade is best, but use whatever you have. Roll it out to your desired preference. My Mom always makes it to the size of her pizza pan and then folds it in half. You could also do it in a rectangular shape if you don’t have a pizza pan.

She always fills our with salami, onions and shredded cheese. Again, stick whatever you want in there. Oh my mouth is watering right now thinking of this!! Only cover half of your dough.

Then, you want to fold the dough over and seal the edges. Stick this baby in a cold oven. I believe Mom sticks hers in a cold oven and then heats it to 500!

When it comes out of the oven, still hot. My mom brushes on some butter and it melts into the dough for a salty, buttery, rich tasting crust. Cut into sticks or pie pieces.

See the cheesy middle? So YUM. Even if you think you don’t care for salami, try it this way. Trust me.

We like to serve ours on the fine china with warm pizza sauce for dipping and cold beer for washing it down. Enjoy! Give this technique a try. Kids and adults love it!

    For her dough, it takes about 15 minutes. You just have to watch it closely so it doesn’t burn!
