Reviews for Spiral Stromboli
"I couldn't find the french bread so I used a tube of pizza crust. We found this to be quick, easy and delicious. I would recommend patting the roasted red peppers dry or REALLY draining them well. Feel free to use a mix of ham and salami. Taking time to brush the crust with melted butter made it very pretty."
"Family loved it. Easy to assemble."
"good taste. I have cooked this twice and both times the bread in the middle is still dough"
"Delicious. The french bread unrolled ok for me, used the Pillsbury one. I left out the pimientos as well and spread some pesto over the top."
"Made just like the recipe - and it was excellent. There are soooo many things you could do to make this recipe your own, or just whatever you are in the mood for. Its a keeper!"
"My mother and I have made a recipe almost identical to this for years minus the pimientos (or olives, as some have substituted). Don't think we'd care for that part anyway! But yes, I had the same problem over and over with the French bread not wanting to unroll right. So I started using crescent roll dough instead--pinching the seams. Now you can buy the seamless roll of crescent roll dough which also works very well. However, I often double it because it is rather thin and I sometimes have trouble with the fillings poking through! But it is very yummy with crescent dough and any kinds of fillings!"
"My kids loved this! It is a very versatile recipe. Next time I might try adding garlic powder and even pizza sauce. Thanks for the recipe!"
"Fast easy and delicious. My only problem was trying to roll out the refrigerated french bread. Either I got the wrong kind or there is an unknown trick. Mine wouldn't roll out hardly at all and was maybe 3" x 12" I made it work though and loved it."
"Very easty to assemble and it tasted great!!"
"This was very good and simple to make. The only problem I had was that the French loaf dough was simply not enough to spread out. After growing frustrated with that, I substituted refrigerated pizza dough instead. That worked splendidly! The next time I make it, I think I will sprinkle the top with garlic salt as well. It was very good and simple. I will definitely make it again!"
"It was very good but couldn't taste the pimentos, do maybe olives the next time. Didn't get the dough rolled out enough for a 14x12 rectangle but it was still delicious!"
"This was DELICIOUS!! My husband, 3 yo daughter, and Mother In Law gobbled it up!! We dipped in ramekins of ranch dressing and had the candy bar salad (suggested pairing from AUG-Sept 2011 mag) and fresh vegetables to dip in the ranch as well! Yummy! Thanks for the great recipes!"
"My family loved this. I substituted sliced black and green olives for the pimento. It was really easy and delicious. I got 12 slices."
"I've made this recipe dozens of times and it's always a hit. Like others said, it works well with many kinds of meat and cheese and it really is quite quick and easy to prepare."
"My family LOVES this. I have made this with different types of meat such as pepperoni, turkey, etc. It's always a favorite."
"I had prepared something similar but using han olives and raisings this is refred as Christmas Bread and is a South American treat for Xrms morning."
"I've used every kind of cheese and lunch meat in this. It's always excellent. I also serve it with pizza sauce poured over it and on the side."
