I confess, I've been holding out on you all. My family has a recipe that my mom has been making for everything from Christmas to my birthday that goes back to my childhood days. It's one of my very favorites, always my choice when asked what I wanted my mom to fix for my birthday. And yet....I have never shared it with you all! It's highly coveted in our family, but I decided I would spill the beans...or in this case, the Ham & Swiss! It's just too much goodness to keep to ourselves!
So, here I go, sharing yet another family secret...my mom's Homemade Stromboli Recipe. It is Ham & Swiss yumminess that you can fix for any occasion! It can also feed quite a few adults, unless, of course, it becomes a fave like it is in my family and everyone grabs up as many pieces as they can get their hands on!
This Ham & Swiss Stromboli is actually quite simple to make. The hardest part, or the one that takes the most preparation and time, is the dough. However, once you've got that process down, you'll find it very easy compared to the more complex look.
If you have a hard time finding the exact brand or type of dough that I use, any will do, including homemade, which I used to use when I had a bread machine with a dough setting.
For my always hungry, homemade ham & swiss stromboli loving family, one loaf/stromboli can feed us all. If I'm planning to have company, I will make a second one.
The other thing I really like about this recipe is that I can make it the night before and then cook it the next day. And leftovers, 2nd time heated is always awesome!
I was in a hurry when I made this one and I will update photos the next time that I fix it, so I had to use what I had on hand which was sliced cheese (hey, it all melts the same anyways!) It's also NOT the prettiest one because I stretched the dough very thin so I could get more pieces out of it since I was making just one and my son had a friend over.
Leave me a comment below and let me know if you make it or have any questions!
