Easy Stromboli

While searching Meijer Mealbox, I found a recipe for Mozzarella Ham Stromboli. It sounded like a fun meal to make for our small group or friends. What could go wrong with crusty french bread, gooey mozzarella cheese, and thinly sliced ham? Thankfully, Meijer Mealbox creates recipes that uses what is currently on sale that week at Meijer. That made for a very thrifty meal!

I have made this stromboli a few times and it is an easy meal to make for a group of people. It would also be easy to switch up the ingredients inside. Catherine has a Mexican version that sounds awesome!

Mozaerella Ham Stromboli (from Meijer Mealbox)

1 tube refrigerated crusty french bread
2 c shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 lb thinly sliced deli ham
1 T butter, melted
1 T parmesean cheese

1. On a lightly floured surface, unroll the tube of bread into a 14X12 inch rectangle.
2. Sprinkle the cheese over the dough to within 1/2 inch of the edges. Top with a single layer of ham.
3. Roll up tightly from a short side, pinch seam to seal.
4. Place seam side down on an ungreased baking sheet. Brush the top with melted butter and sprinkle with parmesean cheese.
5. Bake at 375 for 20 to 25 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes before cutting into slices.
