Meat 'n' Cheese Stromboli Recipe

This tasty Italian-style sandwich can be served warm or at room temperature, and it heats up nicely in the microwave. Friends request it when I’m asked to bring something for a party or gathering. —Sue Shea, Defiance, Ohio

"Since my family doesn't like salami, I subbed deli smoked turkey. I generally make 3 of these so I can freeze 2 of them. Family loves these. This is our Sunday night meal once a month . I will invite people over at many of these. My favorite cheeses are provolone and Gouda as both melt well."
