Mini Stromboli

 Looking for a quick snack?  Nothing beats these.  Roll out the dough, fill it with sliced meat and cheese  and bake.  So simple, and so delicious.  This is a kid favorite.

Pillsbury Grands rolls (8 rolls)
8 Slices Deli Ham
16 Slices Salami
64 Slices Pre-cut Pepperoni
16 Slices Capicola
8 Slices Mozzarella
1 Egg
Instructions
Preheat oven to 350º.    Work each roll to be a rectangular shape approximately 4 inches long.

 

Option 1:  In the middle of the rectangle, place 1 slice deli ham, 2 slices salami, 8 slices pepperoni, 2 slices capicola and 1 slice mozzarella.  Fold the dough so both ends meet and crimp closed.  Squeeze the sides of each Stromboli closed.

Option 2:  Fill the entire rectangle leaving ¼ inch at each side. Fill the rectangle, with 1 slice deli ham, 2 slices salami, 8 slices pepperoni, 2 slices capicola and 1 slice mozzarella.  Starting at one long side, roll the Stromboli until you reach the end.  Press the dough end down to make a seam.  Squeeze the ends together to close.
Place the Stromboli seam side down on baking sheet.
Brush with egg wash (egg + 1 tablespoon water) on all sides.
Bake for 17 minutes or until golden brown.
