Philly Stromboli
1 frozen Rhodes bread loaf
1 green pepper, cut into strips
1 cup fresh mushrooms
1 onion, cut into strips
6 slices of Provolone cheese
Basil (to taste)
Salt and Pepper (to taste)

Directions:  Put out bread loaf in the AM, per directions. After it has risen, push out onto a LIGHTLY sprayed cookie sheet (cover whole sheet). Layer the above ingredients and top with spices to taste. Roll up the sides and ends of the bread to enclose ingredients like an envelope.
Press seams to seal.

Flip loaf over so seams are down. Bake (preheated) 375 for about 20min. Allow to cool 5min before slicing and serve. Can add different cheeses, salami, etc as your family prefers. Enjoy! *Makes great leftovers, too.

-I actually had mushrooms but forgot to add them!

Here's what I started with: 

Here's how I did it:

#1 I put out 2 loaves of the frozen bread in the morning.  I sprayed a baking dish with cooking spray, put the loaves in the dish and then covered it with tin foil.  I let these loaves sit for about 7 hours.

#2 Once we were ready to eat, I cut up the onion, garlic and green peppers.

#3 I uncovered the loaves and they had risen.  I lightly sprayed a cookie pan with cooking spray and put one of the loaves on it.  I spread the dough out all on the cookie pan.

#4 Next, I sliced up a package of deli roast beef and laid it out.

#5 Then the onions, garlic and peppers went on top.

#6 I rolled the dough up and then remembered that I forgot to put the cheese on it.  So I unrolled the dough and added the Provolone cheese.

#7 I did this to both loaves.  Preheated the oven to 375 degrees and put the loaves in for about 30 minutes.

The Finished Product:


This sandwich was so good.  I have never used frozen loaf bread like this before so I was really surprised at how big it was after it cooked.  Had I known that there would be that much bread then I would have only used one loaf!!

The bread did get crispy which I was also surprised because I didn't put an egg wash or butter or anything on top of it.  The meat and onions also cooked through and were hot.

I wish that there would have been a whole grain or whole wheat frozen bread loaf that I could have used instead so that it would have been healthier but it was still really good.

Hope you enjoy!

*****(5 Stars)--This dish was fantastic!
