Stromboli SCREAMS weekend to me! So it is high time I share this favorite dinner of ours! I hope you guys enjoy! Stromboli’s (actually I usually call them Calzone’s) are a hoot, cause you can really add whatever you want to make it your family favorite. What do you put on your Stromboli/Calzone??!?!?!
This kind of dinner is a GREAT way to use leftover meat up from the week (the Stromboli below is actually made with turkey!). We enjoy it with leftover grilled chicken, so grill a few more up next time you grill! HA!! When you can un-bury your grill from under the snow!!! 🙂
1 loaf frozen bread dough (or favorite bread or pizza dough)
2-3 c. cooked, cut up, chicken
1/2 a red pepper, chopped
1/4 c. chopped onion
2-3 c. mozzarella cheese
1 tsp. garlic salt
1 tsp. pepper
olive oil, garlic, Italian seasoning, Parmesan cheese (for top, opt.)
1 jar of Alfredo sauce
Thaw bread dough (or prepare, if making homemade). Roll into a large rectangle (you can make one or two, I usually do one). Layer the chicken, vegetable, cheese and spices. Roll up (similar to cinnamon rolls) and seal the edges and sides well, so no yummy cheese oozes out.
Place on a greased baking sheet. Brush with olive oil, and top with garlic, Italian seasoning and Parmesan cheese, if you want to. Bake @ 350° for 35-40 minutes. Let set about 10 minutes before serving. Serve with warmed Alfredo sauce for dipping.
