Ham & Cheese Stromboli

Quick story about this recipe.

One day I ate this stromboli for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I am not kidding. Every meal. I am not only sassy, broke, and hungry – I’m also lazy and bad at being an adult. What is wrong with me? HUMANS NEED FIBER. Needless to say, I felt like a human pile of garbage at the end of the day.

So, this is a great recipe for lazy people. It’s also pretty perfect for anyone with a semi-functioning brain, because it’s so easy & has very few ingredients. If you buy pizza crust instead of making it, it’s even easier. I made my own dough so that I can feel superior to others, but store bought is just fine. (judges you silently)


Dough (you can also buy any pre-made pizza dough)

  • 2 cups flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon instant yeast
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup warm water


  • 2 1/2 cups sharp cheddar cheese
  • 7 oz (about a package worth) honey ham
  • 1/4 cup honey mustard
  • 1 egg


  1. In a stand mixer using the paddle attachment, combine flour, instant yeast, and salt. Add in lukewarm water. Let the mixer go for a minute or two until the dough is soft and sticky
  2. Spray a bowl with Pam. Transfer dough ball into that bowl and cover with a kitchen towel or plastic wrap. Let it rise for 2 hours.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  4. Transfer dough onto floured surface. Roll out into a long rectangle shape. It should be a long strip of dough, but wide enough to fit your filling.
  5. Brush the dough with honey mustard. Cover with ham, and top with shredded cheese.
  6. Starting on one end, roll the dough up with the fillings. Pinch the crease to decrease spillage!
  7. Crack egg into a small bowl & whisk. Brush egg wash onto the roll.
  8. Place stromboli onto baking sheet & bake for 18-20 minutes.
  9. Cut into pieces & serve. You can refrigerate this all week, and cut pieces to take with you for lunch or breakfast.

Just don’t eat it for every meal. You’ve been warned.
