Bacon Ham and Cheese Stromboli

Bacon Ham and Cheese Stromboli ~ packed with everything delicious! #Stromboli #Sandwiches #Dinner #Lunch 
I made this Bacon Ham and Cheese Stromboli , using store bought bread dough. Our supermarket only makes a few fresh batches every morning, so we have to get there early as this sells out very quickly.

You can however, use your own homemade bread dough and use just about any type - white, brown, wholewheat etc.



Mine did not come out 100% the way I rolled it, but I think it still turned out just fine and most definitely delicious.

Serve a salad or two with the Stromboli and your dinner is sorted, or .. make one the night before and surprise everyone with a special lunch treat the next day.

4.) Roll out the Bread Dough in a rectangular shape - sprinkle half the Mozzarella over the dough followed by the cooked Bacon - scoop the Onion mixture evenly over the Bacon - scatter the Ham over and end with the remaining half Mozzarella.
5.) Start rolling up the dough - lengthwise - place on the lined baking sheet - brush with the beaten Egg and leave to rise for 30 minutes.
