If you don’t own a Gooseberry Cookbook, I’m telling you, you’re missing some great recipes! I have one that’s for entertaining that is full of promises of happy things! There’s not a recipe in there that’s not been really good!! I recently pulled it out looking for a quick and inexpensive lunch-type food I could serve for after church Sunday night. I came across this recipe for Easy Stromboli and was sure I’d found a winner…I was right!
This is appropriately named Easy, becuase it was a cinch to make. Frozen bread dough also makes the prep fast and inexpensive. I bought a package of 5 loaves for a little over $4 at Kroger. I also made it and baked it before we went to church. Then when we got home, I just warmed it in the microwave. It was a quick light meal to use to entertain friends!
Here’s a picture of the easy steps:
1 loaf frozen bread dough, thawed
2 eggs, separated
2 T. oil
1 t. dried oregano
1 t. dried parsley
1/2 t. garlic powder
1/4 t. pepper
4-oz. pkg. sliced pepperoni – I used Turkey Pepperoni
8-oz. pkg. shredded mozzarella cheese
1 T. grated Parmesan cheese
Roll out bread dough into a 12×15-inch rectangle; set aside. Combine egg yolks, oil, oregano, parsley, garlic powder and pepper together; spread over dough. Arrange pepperoni and mozzarella cheese on top; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Roll up; place seam-side down on a baking sheet. Brush with egg whites; bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes. Makes 8 servings.
I served it with some pizza sauce alongside for dipping. Yum!
Have you ever had Stromboli? I’m not sure I’d had it before I made this, but it will definitely be on repeat from now on!
With love from my country kitchen,
