This recipe comes from my sister-in-law Summer. The Cooper's are glad that she shared her stromboli recipe on her blog. It has quickly become a favorite and is fun and easy to prepare. The kids love helping 'braid' the dough. The picture above is my first attempt and it was sadly anemic with the filling...still yummy...but the more the better! Don't be shy!

one box pillsbury hot roll mix or frozen bread dough (thawed) or 1 batch of your favorite bread dough
1 T. butter, softened
1/2 tsp. of each: oregano, parsley, dry mustard, pepper, garlic powder
1/4 lb. pepperoni
1/4 lb. salami
1/2 lb. ham
1/4 lb. shredded mozzarella cheese

prepare dough according to package directions or recipe
roll dough out to a 14-inch square
mix spices with softened butter and spread over dough
cover middle 1/3 section of dough with meats and cheese
cut strips about 2-inches wide into sides of dough
fold dough strips in over filling, alternating sides to look braided
sprinkle top with parmesan and Italian seasoning
let rise for 20 minutes, then bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes
serve with marinara sauce for dipping

Your stromboli looks really good. It is picture perfect. I can see your little darlin's loving to do this with you. It is so good to include them at an early age in the preparation of food.
