Ham and Cheese Crescent Roll Stromboli
My husband has been after me to make a homemade Stromboli recipe for a long time, so when I joined the weekly #SundaySupper Movement recently and saw that the first theme I would be able to participate in was "Stuff, Roll, and Wrap", I knew immediately it was time to finally make one. I just couldn't bring myself to make homemade dough for it, I tend to make a mess with flour, and really didn't feel like cleaning it all up, so I decided to use refrigerated crescent roll sheets as the dough instead.
The purpose of #SundaySupper is bringing family back around the table. Right now we almost always have dinner together, but as our daughter gets older and starts participating in different activities, I know it will probably get harder to do. I do consider it important to have meals together, have a chance to talk, reconnect, and just spend time together, and that's why I decided to join this movement I had already heard so much about!
I went with this recipe for stromboli, a simple Ham and Cheese Crescent Roll Stromboli, instead of a regular Italian Stromboli recipe, hoping my daughter would eat it. She did not. It appears we are at a VERY picky time period, she just didn't buy the idea it was like a grilled ham and cheese. Not that she would eat that, either, I was just grasping at straws.
I started out by bringing the crescent roll dough to room temperature, which takes about an hour. Then I rolled the dough up into a ball and pressed it out with my fingers greased with just a few drops of olive oil, until it was about a 10 inch rectangle. Then I brushed a thin layer of marinara sauce over the dough, and then a layer of deli ham,
and then a layer of sliced mozzarella cheese,
followed by just a little Parmesan cheese.
Then I carefully folded over the dough a quarter of the way, then completely over the rest of the filling, and pressed the ends of the dough together.
After it was folded, I brush the top with a little egg white, and then sprinkled Italian seasoning lightly over the top, then baked it at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.
Let it cool for a few minutes before slicing, and served it with a side of marinara sauce for dipping. It immediately became one of my all time favorite stromboli recipes.

I made this tonight and it looked great. However, the inside dough was completely raw. I even baked it 5 minutes longer than suggested. Bummer.
Hi Rachel, I'm sorry that happened. The only thing I can think of is that your oven might be running lower than the temperature you set. I haven't had any other complaints like this.
Julie @ Texan New Yorker says
This looks fabulous! I would dive in to a piece of this right now if I could. Thanks for posting!

I've never made stromboli, but this looks like a perfect recipe to start with!
Amy Kim (@kimchi_mom) says
Strombolis, calzones, and pizza pockets! I'm get a lesson in Italian wraps for this Sunday Supper!
The "picky" eater...such a power struggle! My son is very finicky too! Your stromboli looks and sounds awesome! I would eat that whole thing!
Sorry I missed your comment. Yes, I was a picky eater myself, and she is taking after me. Thanks for the compliment on my Stromboli!
Sounds like a winner to me!
The end result looks so pretty!
Bobbi's Kozy Kitchen says
What a wonderful dish. I know my family would flip for it!!
The Wimpy Vegetarian says
Your stromboli looks fantastic! Great, great job. I would love to make this - but not sure it will look as wonderful as yours 🙂
Thank you, but trust me, I impressed myself with how good it looked!
*squeal* Crescent roll stromboli = awesomeness on a plate.
Nancy @ gottagetbaked says
Ermagaaaawd Bernadette, I'll eat whatever your daughter didn't eat! This is my dream meal. I love meat 'n cheese stuffed into carbs! And one should always have short-cut ready made dough so that this could be whipped up at short notice. I'm going to go buy some right now!
Glad you like it! I'm even more glad to find out I'm not the only one who doesn't like to make dough!
Marlene @Nosh My Way says
First things first. This is stunning and looks out of this world. Second, I don't attempt my own dough either. Now to attempt your stromboli.
What an amazing recipe, I just love and will have to make this soon!!
This sounds like a great dish!
You made this look so easy! Great presentation.
Thanks Christy! It actually is pretty easy, which is just what I need!
Seduction In The Kitchen says
