We have a tradition in our home that every Friday night is "Fun Night". We rotate through the children, in birth order, and when it is "their night", they get to decide on the meal and more importantly, the dessert :) They also get to decide what we do that night for fun. They can choose a game to play, movie to watch, etc.
So, every Friday, I will post a new recipe for you from our dinner!
This past Friday it was Jacob's night. He is 5 and you never know what he will pick! He chose Stromboli and he likes it made with eggs, sausage and cheese. You can fill it with numerous different things. We have done italian, mexican, ham and cheese, etc.
First, you make your dough.
2C very warm water
4tsp yeast
5T sugar
2tsp salt
4T oil
5C flour
In a large bowl, mix water and yeast with a whisk until dissolved. Add sugar and salt. With a wooden spoon, stir in flour one cup at a time. After the 4th cup, I add the oil. It makes it easier to stir in that last cup. Beat until a soft dough forms. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 30 minutes. This will make one large stromboli.
Like I said, we have used many different varieties of fillings. The picture shows a filling with scrambled eggs, sausage, and cheese. When you are ready to assemble, roll out the dough to approximately 12X12 inch rectangle. Spread your filling over the entire surface of the dough. Fold in ends first then fold over sides. Pick it up carefully and place on your pan seam side down. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Enjoy!
