November 3rd is Sandwich Day

Mozzarella Ham Stromboli     

1 (11 oz.) tube refrigerated crusty French Bread Loaf

¼ lb. thinly sliced deli ham

2 c. shredded Mozzarella cheese

1 Tbsp. butter/margarine, melted

1 Tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese

On a lightly floured surface, pat dough into a 14×12” rectangle. Sprinkle Mozzarella cheese over dough to within ½” of the edges. Top with a single layer of ham. Roll up tightly from the shorter side; pinch seam to seal. Place seam side down on an ungreased baking sheet. Brush top of loaf with butter; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Cut with a serrated knife. Yield: 6 servings.

This sandwich makes a quick and easy meal and my kids loved it! It was featured in the “Taste of Home-Quick Cooking” magazine and it quickly became a favorite. You can also spread a little bit of prepared mustard on the dough before cooking. Since my kids didn’t like mustard, I omitted it.
