Ham and Swiss Stromboli Recipe

This pretty swirled sandwich loaf from Pat Raport of Gainesville, Florida is fast, easy and versatile. "Fill it with anything your family likes," she suggests. "Try sliced pepperoni and provolone cheese, or anchovies and ripe olives if you're feeling adventurous."

  • 1 tube (11 ounces) refrigerated crusty French loaf
  • 6 ounces thinly sliced deli ham
  • 6 green onions, sliced
  • 8 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • 1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded Swiss cheese


  • 1. Preheat oven to 350°. Unroll dough into a rectangle on a greased baking sheet. Place ham over dough to within 1/2 in. of edges; sprinkle with onions, bacon and cheese. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side. Pinch seam to seal and tuck ends under. Place seam side down on baking sheet.
  • 2. With a sharp knife, cut several 1/4-in.-deep slits on top of loaf. Bake 26-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly before slicing. Serve warm. Yield: 8 servings.

"Super easy, fast and so yummy. I used a tube of pizza dough because I couldn't find the French Bread tube. I left out the onions because I can't digest them and the bacon because I didn't have any. I added turkey and provolone to the ham & Swiss, then did an egg wash before cutting the slits. It turned out so good! This is one of those recipes that you can alter depending on your taste and what is in your fridge. I think it would have been really tasty to add a light layer of Dijon Mustard, but I didn't think of it until I tasted the finished product. It was still "The Bomb". My sister loved it. My husband, who is super picky loved it, too. Pizza dough worked perfectly. I will make this again and again. It is so easy!"

"This a delicious stromboli! I often serve it when I have my girlfriends all gathered for lunch, it's a recipe that everyone asks for."

"This was a simple and quick appetizer. I had to substitute thin pizza crust as the store was out of French bread. Turkey was substituted for ham due to personal preference. Also, for personal preference, I sprinkled some black pepper and Italian seasoning. It was made for a New Years Eve party and was a hit."

"I use refrigerated pizza dough. It does unroll and change up stuffing based on availability in my fridge and taste wants at the time. great easy sandwich."

"Not too impressed with the French roll bread or the flavor combo. As another reviewer said, once opened, the bread loaf could not be unrolled. I think this caused the bread to be thicker in some areas because it was hard to "spread". Not a big fan of the flavor combo."

"I make this quite often--VERY EASY and YUMMY! Our family loves it! I often use Pillsbury crescent roll dough, doubled and pinched on seams, or the seamless crescent roll dough that you can buy now. It's delicious! However, I usually bake mine at 325* for around 25-30 minutes. That way it gets done slower on the outside while still getting the inside done too."

"I used the pre-made pizza crust you get at the grocery store. Used some leftover honey ham we baked for Easter...diced, and diced swiss cheese. I did add some fresh herbs from the garden and green onion, left out the bacon.... took about 40 minutes to bake. Was very easy to assemble and a great way to use up leftover ham."

"THe first direction requires you to UNroll dough into a rectangle, well the dough had no way to unroll, it was all one piece, I tried pressing it out w/ my hands but that made a mess! I got out a rolling pin - WORSE! I finally used my arm to flatten it somewhat. The rest was a breeze -NOT - rolling it up was also a challenge, as the dough was not cooperative. I would love to see a video of someone actually UNROLLING the dough! HA!"

"Our family just loves this recipe, its so easy and tasty, I spread some mayo on the dough before adding the ham and I use green peppers and sweet onions instead of the green onions, its SO yummy!"

"This is really yummy and I will be making this again. However, make sure if your feeding more than two or three people, make two. It was scrumptious and is really easy to add anything to it. For instance, canadian bacon, mushrooms or anything."

"One of my fav Taste of Home recipes. Quick, easy and yummy. A couple tips: don't roll out the loaf too thin or you'll lose a crust. I did that and it was a hint too thin (my fault). I went overboard on the ham and swiss so I had to leave it in the oven a little longer until it was browned. I served it with french onion soup which became a sort of au jus for the stromboli. Sooo good! You could totally substitute ham with roast beef or turkey."

"This was a disaster. I followed the directions and cooked it for the required amount of time. The outside was nice and golden brown, but the dough on the inside was totally raw. I sliced up the stromboli in an effort to cook the inside without cooking the outside too much more since it was done, but then the cheese leaked out all over and it stuck to the pan. Not sure what I could have done differently. I've made similar recipes before (with different dough) and haven't had a problem."

"I totally disagree that this is a "difficult" recipe to assemble with too much ingredients. I have made this recipe about 6 times now... and if you think ham, cheese, and green onions are too much for a sandwhich, or making a jelly roll is too hard, maybe you should just stick to telling people it tastes good and let them decide for themselves. I thought this recipe was great and i make it all the time, quickly, and without trouble. we dip it in marinara sauce and sprinkle parmesan on it after it comes out of the oven."

"Re: Ham and Swiss Stromboli This was ok, (as far as taste) but a bit on the difficult side to assemble together. Perhaps the amount of ingredients was a bit too much for one sandwich, and for one to roll up jelly-roll style. I would suggest serving this with some bottled ranch dressing.   "
