Italian Beef Stromboli by Mags


  • 1 loaf frozen bread dough
  • 8-10 slices of roast beef
  • 8-10 slices of provolone cheese
  • olive oil
  • Italian seasoning
  • garlic powder

Assembly Day:

  1. Thaw dough according to directions on package. (I laid out the dough the morning of cooking day on cookie sheets and let them thaw out for about 3-4 hours.)
  2. Stretch out thawed loaf into large rectangle shape on a GREASED cookie sheet. Stretch it as wide as you can.
  3. Brush with a thin layer of olive oil. Sprinkle Italian seasoning and garlic powder.
  4. Spread out your roast beef slices along bread.
  5. Spread out your provolone slices on top of roast beef.
  6. Curl in the dough on the two ends.
  7. Start rolling the whole thing lengthwise to get a long rolled up "log" of dough (with the seasonings, roast beef, and cheese rolled up inside).
  8. Brush with more olive oil and sprinkle more Italian seasoning.

To Freeze:
Bake in 350 oven 15 minutes or just until barely golden. Cool completely on cooling rack. Double wrap in Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil. Freeze flat.

Serving Day:
Thaw completely. Bake in 350 oven for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. If the top is browning too quickly and the inside is not finished, just lay a piece of foil over the Stromboli for the remainder of the baking time. Let cool 10 minutes. Slice in 1 inch slices. Use add mayonaise or honey mustard if you want.


  1. Our family has decided that we love "stromboli" so much that we are going to figure out as many things as possible to roll up and bake within bread dough... I may have to only make this for every category.... LOL! And the roast beef and provolone was YUM-O!!!

  2. Everyone loved the stromboli. I cooked it a few minutes longer because my crust wasn't browning- but that's more to do with my oven than your cooking time estimate:) The only other problem was there wasn't enough for leftovers-that's a compliment!

  3. This got thumbs up for flavor, but we all thought it needs a lot more meat. Thanks for making it!

  4. This was a good hot sandwich. My picky eaters weren't thrilled, but that left more for the rest of us!

  5. WE LOVED IT! I agree we needed more meat, but the flavor was yummy! Even though there are 2 1/2 of us in our house, we ate 3/4 of it in one dinner. So maybe increase the quantity next time you make this amazing meal! Please make this again, and again!
