Happily, I grew up going to the same church as Bonnie Smith. When you go to the same church as Bonnie Smith, you will be spoiled with her famous moist cakes and.. stromboli. And when you live with my mom, she will make you Bonnie-style stromboli at home. Needless to say, I had a wonderful childhood. Last night we had this for dinner. My first stromboli on my own. And let me tell you a little something about stromboli.. you can't go wrong. I just love saying that word. Stromboli.

1 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

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

+ you can add onion, olives, mushrooms, green pepper, etc. to the filling.
+ i like to serve it with marinara sauce for dipping.
+ i just guessed on the amount of meat and cheese, i don't think i used the full 1/4 lb.

Bonnie smith, I love you.

I make something similar...but not quite as tasty-sounding as yours. This is definately going in my "to make" pile. :)

My life is soooooooo busy with grandchildren, church etc etc that I don't have time to check all of these blogs. Tawnya emailed to tell me about your posted stromboli recipe. It sure is a hit with most everyone. Glad that you enjoyed it and passed it on for others to enjoy. :o)
