Recipe Flop!

I made Ham and Swiss Stromboli tonight for supper. It smelled so good cooking. My husband came in from work and said, "Boy that sure smells good and looks good also." Then it went down hill from there. I only added 3 green onions instead of the 6 that it called for and boy am I glad. WE thought the three onions was too many. I didn't have shredded swiss cheese so I weighed 6 oz. of sliced swiss cheese and just tore it up in small pieces. Here goes the recipe if you want it.

1 tube (11 oz.) refrigerated French Bread
6 green onions, sliced
6 oz. thinly sliced deli ham
8 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
1 1/2 c. (6 oz.) shredded swiss cheese

Unroll dough on a greased baking sheet. Place ham over dough to within 1/2 inch of edges; sprinkle evenly with onions, bacon and cheese. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side. Pinch seams to seal and tuck ends under. Place seam side down on a baking sheet.
With a sharp knife, cut several 1/4 inch deep slits on top of loaf. Bake at 350 for 26-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool slightly before slicing. Serve warm.

Yield: 6-8 Servings

The picture below is where I unrolled the dough out onto a cookie sheet.

This is what the dough looked like with the bacon, onion and cheese on it.

The dough is rolled up and ready to put in the oven.

I cannot believe that I forgot to take a picture of the sandwich before I started slicing it up. The dough bakes up very pretty but none the less, below is the finished project.

I can never remember cooking something that my husband refused to eat but this is one recipe that he said he just couldn't eat and I didn't like it either. I had to fix something else for supper. Hope you enjoy it more!


  1. This interesting Ham sandwich looks like it could be great food with a few creative tweaks...try Ham, Grated Parmesan and a couple of tablespoons of spaghetti sauce. Yum!

  2. Hmm. Now that sounds good!
