For a kicked up version, add jalapeno peppers and Monterrey Jack or Pepper Jack cheese. You can even dice bell peppers and mushrooms to it.

Homemade Sausage Cheese Stromboli Recipe Tips
- Stromboli is an Italian savory turnover that’s filled with meats, cheeses, and vegetables.
- A stromboli is either folded like a calzone or rolled then baked to a golden brown.
- If you roll the bread as thinly as you can, especially the side that will be on the inside, it will cook better.
- Also, you’ll want to precook the meat for your stromboli.
- Cook until a dark golden brown to ensure the inside gets cooked.
- The beauty of stromboli is you can customize each one for your picky eaters. Try different meats like pepperoni, use your favorite cheese, try onions, peppers or olives!
