    Not sure what I did wrong, but the inner dough did not cook, the bottom was very over cooked, hard to cut . I made the recipe according to your instructions, then froze the Stromboli. I thawed it then cooked it at 375 for 30 mins. I cut into the end to see if it was cooked, it wasn’t so baked it another 15 mins. Still raw dough, so I covered it with foil and lowered the temp to 350 and baked another 15 minutes. Still not perfectly done. But we ate it! 😊 I would appreciate any suggestions or advice to cooking this better, as I still have another Stromboli in the freezer. Thank you!

    My girls gobbled this up happy of this stromboli after school and hubby took the left overs to work with him this morning. Definently saving this recipe for future use. I used roasted turkey instead of ham, but those hungry kiddies did not seem to mind one bit. Thank you for this recipe

    We love this Stromboli recipe. It is the only one I have made for quite a while. The dough is very easy to work with and it turns out great every time. So yummy!!


  4. Ginger says

    Does anyone know the weight of the dough is right before rolling it out? Does it weigh a lb or 2 lbs or what? Thanks, Ginger

    Hello! I recently made this and froze it, wrapping in parchment and then foil. The crust was so easy to work with! I just used the frozen meal yesterday and wanted to let everyone know how I baked it. I thawed in the freezer over night. Two hours before meal time, I took it out, unwrapped it, and let it come to room temperature for about an hour. I brushed the crust with a bit of olive oil (it was looking a little dried out) and lightly covered with foil. I put it in a 400 degree oven for about 30 minutes. I removed the foil and baked for 15-20 minutes longer. It was great! My family devoured it! Great recipe.


    • Cindy says

      Oops! I thawed it in the refrigerator, not the freezer!


      • Marla says

        Thanks. I’m here for the freezer meal option

    • Honey says

      Did you bake it before you froze it?


      • Holly says

        It’s a little confusing because the printed recipe doesn’t tell you if you should bake it first or not. But in the top part where she is explaing the steps with the picture she says there. After it’s rolled and you brush the top with the butter and put the cheese and parsley and make the slices on the top you can wrap it in wax or parchment paper thendouble wrap in tinfoil.

    I made this for the grandkids for lunch today and they loved it. I made the mistake of using pre-packaged salami and it was too thick to roll easily. Next time I would use deli meet sliced thinly. I also didn’t seal the seam completely and some cheese and one pepperoni snuck out the back door. I would definitely make this again and thanks for the link to the garlic spread seasoning. It’s delicious!


    • Vanessa says

      Made this for the first time today but with a couple substitutions.

      First attempt was a failure because I substituted white flour for whole wheat without changing the amount called for and the dough was too thick. Second attempt, I added 1/2 cup less flour and viola…dough was perfect! So if you don’t have whole wheat flour, you can use white but use less. Also, didn’t have olive oil, so substituted for canola.

    I would love to know the answers to those 2 questions. I’d like to make the stromboli this week.

    Hmm, I’m not sure I can trust someone who jams to 80s music :). Kidding aside, this looks delicious, and I’ll try it as soon as I can, while jammin’ to some 70s tunes.


  11. Linds says

    Hi, I was wondering if it needs to be defrosted prior to cooking or if it can go directly from freezer to oven? If so, would I use the same temp? Thanks!


  12. Sheila Shive says

    Is your recipe for Easy Ham and Cheese Stromboli freezable? If so, do I freeze it before or after I bake it?
