Cordon Bleu Stromboli

I made this the other day and it was gone in a flash.  My recipe for "home made" bread is the bread machine or the frozen loaves, I think this recipe came from the frozen stuff.   I didn’t have Swiss cheese so I used Mozzarella and I didn’t measure the amounts.  I just can’t cook that way.  If I’m baking I do measure but for everyday meal cooking, not so much.  I consider a recipe more of a guideline.   Next time I'm thinking maybe a good garlic spread instead of the butter to kick it up a bit.

This was a really good guideline that I am glad to share.

1 loaf frozen bread thawed
2 tbs butter, room temperature
8 oz thin sliced deli ham
1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
5 oz thin sliced roasted deli chicken

On a lightly floured surface roll bread dough to a 10 x 8 inch rectangle.  Spread with butter.

Top with chicken, ham and cheese.

Roll up jelly roll style.  Pinch the seam and tuck the ends under. 

Place seam side down on a greased baking sheet.

Cover and let rise for 20 minutes.

Bake at 375 for 25 to 30 minutes. 

*I don't know if leftovers reheat well or not, there were none.

  7. This looks so good that my mouth is watering! I would probably add something with color, like red peppers or green scallions - I always have to have "color" on my plate (once my husband served chicken, corn and potatoes and I was struggling because everything was the same color - think I have OCD???)
