  • 1-1/2 cups warm water (120° to 130°)

  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 pounds bulk pork sausage

Nutritional Facts

1 serving (1 slice) equals 370 calories, 18 g fat (8 g saturated fat), 82 mg cholesterol, 702 mg sodium, 34 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 17 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt and yeast. Add water, milk and butter; beat on low until well combined.
  2. Turn onto a well-floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook sausage until no longer pink; drain and cool. Stir in the mozzarella, 2 eggs and basil; set aside.
  4. Punch dough down; divide in half. Roll one portion into a 15-in. x 10-in. rectangle on a greased baking sheet. Spoon half of the sausage mixture lengthwise down one side of rectangle to within 1 in. of edges.
  5. Fold dough over filling; pinch edges to seal. Cut four diagonal slits on top of stromboli. Repeat with remaining dough and filling. Beat remaining egg; brush over loaves. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  6. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Slice; serve warm. Yield: 2 loaves (16 slices each).

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 24, 2014

Wonderful! I made half a recipe of this along with a more traditional Stromboli. This was the preferred one hands down. Wish I had made the full recipe.

MY REVIEW

I omitted the basil the 2nd time I made it and liked it better.

MY REVIEW

I use frozen bread dough to make this recipe easier. I also add diced onions and mushrooms to the sausage. This is the most-requested recipe in my house!

MY REVIEW

One of my husband's favorites. I usually add a can of sliced mushrooms to the sausage. If you don't want to make the dough frozen bread dough can be used.

MY REVIEW

Excellent! Though it takes a few hours prep work due to the dough rising, the actual prep work involved is very minimal. Tastes excellent and looks good as well.
