Fontina Ham Stromboli Recipe
“Pesto seasons these savory meat- and cheese-stuffed slices that my family and friends love. The loaves freeze well—baked or unbaked.” —Nancy Piano, Nevada City, California
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 40 min. Bake: 30 min. YIELD:16 servings
- 1 large onion, chopped

- 2. On two greased baking sheets, roll each loaf of dough into a 16-in. x 10-in. rectangle. Spread each with 2 tablespoons pesto; sprinkle with onion mixture and basil. Arrange the ham, prosciutto and fontina cheese over each rectangle to within 1/2 in. of edges.
- 3. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seams to seal and tuck ends under.
