With just five ingredients, you can whip up our favorite easy lunch: Ham and Cheese Stromboli. We take frozen bread or pizza dough, layer it up with salty ham, gooey white American cheese, and then roll it up and bake. Cheesy and so delish.
If defrosting, pull out the bread dough the night before and follow instructions to defrost.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Lightly dust a large working surface as well as a rolling pin. Roll the dough out to a rectangle 8x13 inches long. Transfer the dough to the parchment covered baking sheet.
Lay ham across the dough. Layer cheese on top. Cover with another layer of ham. Sprinkle with basil. Season with a little bit of salt and black pepper.
Tightly roll up the dough, jelly-roll style. Tucks the ends over and pinch eveyrthing closed. (You can also brush the edges with egg wash to help them seal. Cut three slits in the top of the stromboli. Take a pastry brush and brush the top with egg wash. Sprinkle with more dried basil and plenty of salt and pepper.
Bake until golden brown and cooked through, about 25-30 minutes. Let the stromboli rest for 5 minutes before gently slicing with a serrated knife. Serve right away.
