Weekends we tend to lounge around when it comes to eating … and I’m always looking for a new way to serve ordinary foods…. I came across a Pillsbury recipe recently that made a “Stromboli” type sandwich using a refrigerated Pillsbury French Bread Loaf in a can…
So … I decided to try it… not only was it easy… but delicious too! I liked the French Bread dough rather than the typical pizza dough you use for traditional Strombolis… it was lighter and more sandwich-like… perfect for deli ham and Swiss cheese… I even put a layer of Genoa salami in because Warren likes it so much… there are infinite possibilities you can try with fillings…
I didn’t add any condiments on the dough… like mustard… I decided that each person could add whatever condiment they wished after… and actually it didn’t need any… which was very nice.
Other additions to spruce up the filling are roasted red peppers..olives… chopped tomato.. chopped green onions… just to name a few.
This was quick and easy and a pleasant change from an ordinary sandwich… I served these with a bowl of fresh green grapes instead of chips.. and we had a terrific little summer supper.
Recipe: Baked Ham and Cheese French Bread Sandwiches
All you need:
1 can Pillsbury French Bread Loaf
Deli Ham, thinly sliced
Swiss cheese slices
Genoa salami, thinly sliced
All you need to do:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Generously grease a baking sheet (I used a cookie sheet sprayed with olive oil cooking spray)
Carefully unroll the French Bread loaf on a cutting board.
Layer the meats and cheeses over the dough.
Roll the dough up … jelly roll style.. along the long side.
Pinch the dough closed along the side and the ends.
Using a sharp knife make about 4 slits on the roll.
Place on the baking sheet and bake for 35 minutes or until golden brown.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool for about 5 minutes.
Slice the roll into thick slices and serve immediately.
