Spread the love

So this morning my husband and I were driving to work and got stuck at a stop light.  The car beside us was a Volvo.  When the light turned green we all proceeded to drive forward again and my husband kept saying “Wolwo” to which I was making fun of him for saying it wrong… when all of the sudden it hit me like a freight train… Now you have to remember my husband and I went to school together back in the day… A memory from 9th grade hit me.  I just looked at him and said, “It was YOU!”  To which he replied “huh?”

Back in 9th grade we had Animal Science I together and had been talking about reproductive parts of a female animal and the word vulva came up… yeah every time I’d try to tell him that a truck was a Volvo he and I think his friends would just laugh their heads off at me.

He claims now it was a form of flirting….

Isn’t it strange how one little thing like your husband mispronouncing (intentionally) Volvo brings back memories….

Anyway moving on!!

A while back I was perusing my favorite blogs when I came across Sara’s Stromboli Heaven recipe.  Well as I always do when I find something that catches my eye, I sent an email to my husband to tell him about it.  He read the post or at least looked at the photos/ingredients (dunno, I wasn’t around him) and he came back with that sounds good.

So one night we decided to try it and OH. MY. GOSH. is it awesome!  Of course we’ve played around with it and made it ours, but I don’t think we ever make it the same way twice.

Thanks for the great recipe Sara!!!

Now Sunday night dinners have 2 requested recipes: Mozzarella Cheese Dip & Stromboli.

I now present you with:


Refrigerator Pizza crust (or we like to use the refrigerator French Bread dough)
Your toppings (we chose this time hamburger, bacon, onions & mushrooms)
Pizza sauce
Mozzarella Cheese


 Make sure your hamburger is thawed… if not (my case) thaw it!

Slice up your onions.  I think we wound up using the whole onion.
(remember Shrek says Onions have layers… LOL)

Cook up your bacon.  Drain the grease.

Then check out the poor beggers… LOL

Brown up your hamburger.

Now mix all toppings together.

Make sure your counter is clean, you’ll be using it!!

Spread out flour and flour up your rolling pin too!

Then roll out your French bread dough (or pizza crust) thin.

Add your pizza sauce.

 Once pizza sauce is spread out, add your toppings.

And then top with the Mozzarella cheese.

When you are done, it should look like this.

 Now start at the far side and roll up toward you, pinching the seam together when it’s completely rolled up.

You should be left with this.  Now sometimes we roll the ends in and pinch, sometimes we don’t.

This time we tried a new method, once transferred to the baking pan, we covered it with some EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)

And some Italian Seasoning.

Place in a 350 degree oven and bake for package time. 
I think our French bread said 24 minutes….

When it’s all cooked and golden on top, you are finished.

Dig in!!

Ok now that you are tired of looking at food, Happy Hump Day to you!! 🙂

  1. I had a prof in college with a speech/launguage issue. Imagine 26 overtired students ,sitting through the longest anesthesiology class in history . He goes to say Veni Puncture ( a type of blood draw) and it comes out weenie punture!!!!!

  2. Ohhh yummy that looks so good. And I love it when a sudden moment can bring back such old memories. Love those moments!

  3. I LOVE making this! This is the first time I've heard of someone else making stromboli. I also use store-bought pizza crust and sauce, and then I usually put mushrooms, pepperoni, pastrami, mozzerella cheese and olives 🙂
