Cheeseburger Stromboli

Not the prettiest picture, I know!
Hi all!
Boy is time flying by. School begins in two weeks and I just can't believe that another summer has come and is almost gone. Not a whole lot to blog about as nothing interesting has been going on here lately. Just enjoying my last few weeks of summer break by keeping cool in the A/C while working on my stitching. We do have a trip planned to Kennywood Park this weekend and we are all looking forward to it. Just hope the weather cooperates!

As for the recipe!
I made this yesterday and it was so good.
I made several of them ~cheeseburger, 2 pepperoni & cheese and one for my Dad that I used vegetarian meat crumbles in place of the beef. My favorite was the cheeseburger!
Anyways, the recipe that I am sharing is only for the cheeseburger mixture which will only make one stromboli, yet the dough recipe is enough for 4 stromboli. So, you will either have to cut the dough recipe in half or have filling ingredients ready for the other 3 stromboli. (pepperoni & cheese, ham and cheese or whatever other combinations you can come up with.)

Cheeseburger Stromboli

Dough: (enough to make 4 stromboli)
1/4 cup warm water
1/2 tsp. sugar
1 tbsp. yeast
2 cups warm water
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup melted butter
1/4 cup oil
1/8 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
6 cups flour
Dissolve 1/2 tsp. sugar and the yeast in the 1/4 cup of warm water. Let set 5-10 minutes.
Next mix the 2 cups water, egg, butter and oil in a seperate bowl and then add it to the yeast mixture.
Stir in the 1/8 cup of sugar and 1/2 tsp. salt and 3 cups of flour.
Using a dough hook, begin kneading the dough and add the rest of the flour. Continue kneading until dough is smooth.
(Dough will be sticky!)
Place dough in a greased bowl, turning to coat all sides of dough. Place towel over bowl and allow to sit in a warm area until dough has doubled in size.
Meanwhile, begin preparing the filling ingredients.

Filling: (enough for 1 stromboli)
1 lb. ground beef
1/2 tsp. seasoned salt
1/4 tsp. black pepper
2 tbsp. dried minced onion flakes
dill pickle relish
tomato slices
shredded cheddar cheese

Brown ground beef, onion, salt and pepper and drain.
Divide dough into 4 sections.
Take one section and roll out into a 10X13 rectangle.
Spread beef mixture on top.
Add tomato slices, shredded cheese  & dill pickle relish.
Top with ketchup and mustard.
Roll up lengthwisewise in a jelly roll fashion.
Bake at 350° on a greased cookie sheet for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown.

I'm off to get some house cleaning out of the way so that I can spend a little time this afternoon stitching. Hope to have some Kennywood pictures to share with you next week and I also just realized that I still have pictures from our spring school fieldtrip that I never finished sharing with you all. I'll have to do that soon too!
Have a great day and a relaxing weekend!

I love the ones I make with pepperoni, onions, cheese and whatever else I can find to put in them! Yum! I can't believe school starts so soon already either! We haven't even went to the pool this year! Doctor appointments have filled up next week pretty much and a band practice one day too! Not sure if I will survive all the running around I have to do the next 2 weeks before school starts! lol

Have Fun at Kennywood!
