Stromboli

I have no idea why it is called that.  Just a minute. Must check it out ... I'll go ask Professor Google and see if it is a regular name for this type of bread.












Oh, sorry...just ran off to check it out and Wiki says this about it. ....  And, as usual... the Americans are claiming they invented it.  Okay then.....

I found the recipe in one of my bread books.... and, added a few things they didn't ...subtracted a bit of the cheese... and now wish I had mixed it more like they suggested.   Next time.

I may have added a bit more flour than they asked for or mixed it a bit too much...either way.... I didn't like the firmness of the crust, although, the interior is lovely and soft.  And, in retrospect, wish it had more cheese and less olives.... again, next time.  The photo in my book looks softer and it seemed flatter ...

There are lots of recipes online if you would like to give it a try.  I won't be adding my own recipe here til I have attempted it a second time and appreciate the crust a bit more.   But, how about this? ... Why doesn't somebody else give a Stromboli a try and let me know if their recipe is better or ..much the same....  ??

Oh Yum ....about 40 years ago I used to make a potatoe and mince curry which I spread over the dough and then rolled up like a swiss roll. They were sliced while warm and served at winter gatherings of friends ....I had totally forgotten about them until I saw this.

I was JUST at a friend's house, telling her that I am afraid to try and make bread.
I think I need to make it alongside someone who knows what they are doing first, so they can show me how to do it the right way.
I love making soups, so this seems like the logical next step, right?
