Reviews for Super Bowl Stromboli
"I changed a lot of things about this recipe to make use of what I had on hand, but kept the same basic flavors of ham and cheese. We thought it was a nice change from the usual Italian calzone that I usually make.I made my own recipe for calzone dough -- easier, since it's a bread machine recipe. I used shredded cheddar rather than sliced, and cubed ham rather than sliced, and pepperoni instead of the summer sausage. Also, I spread the mustard right on the dough before layering on the other items.I also did not make the braided loaf; just rolled it up and sealed it as I would calzone.All in all, we thought this had excellent flavor -- and we proved that this is a very flexible recipe!"
"Oh, I also added cooked, crumbled, Italian sausage."
"Tried a varietion of this recipe on my picky family tonight and they loved it! I used one can of refrigerator french bread dough and it worked great. Changed out the Swiss for Smoked Provolone and American, and left out the mustard. We dipped it in marinara sause and it was wonderful. Very filling!"
"This was a great hit at our Super Bowl party this year. I did "cheat" and used frozen bread dough that I defrosted in the fridge over night."
"I think you mean "to cut 1-in.-wide strips.""
