Ham and cheese puff pastry stromboli recipe
Yields 1 large stromboli
1 puff pastry sheet, thawed
18 slices ham
12 slices cheese (white American used here)
Flour for dusting
1 egg, plus 1 tablespoon water, whisked (for egg wash)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly flour a clean, flat surface and roll out the puff pastry dough into a large rectangle.
Starting at the bottom with ham, layer on your ham and cheese as shown in the picture. Once all the ham and cheese has been placed on the dough, roll dough up lengthwise to form the stromboli. Fold over the ends to seal.
Brush egg wash on the ends and seam to secure the stromboli and keep it from opening while cooking.
Place stromboli seam side down on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush entire stromboli with egg wash. Bake in the oven 15 minutes. Allow stromboli to cool slightly before slicing. Serve with honey mustard or favorite dipping sauce on the side.
