Easy Stromboli Recipe

Busy weeknights, simple lunch time, a favorite for all time. My friend Kim’s stromboli recipe is an easy way to fill tummies. I usually keep it simple with shredded cheese and turkey pepperoni for filling. But you can make it heartier with lunch meat like Kim does.

This recipe is easily adaptable according to how cheesy you and your family prefer your stromboli. I sometimes serve a ‘leftovers’ stromboli with chicken or another type of leftover meat.

I make two for our family. Plus, depending on how you serve it, it’s fun for little ones to dip!
