Cheesy Mushroom Meatloaf Stromboli

Print Friendly and PDF

Stromboli is a type of turnover filled with various cheeses, typically mozzarella, Italian meats such as salami, capicola and bresaola or vegetables. The dough traditionally used is Italian bread dough.

I took a nice American comfort food and combined it with this Italian classic.  Here is something great to do with leftover meatloaf or chicken. 
The fresh made crust really makes the difference.  

Try my Stupid Easy Epic Pizza Dough Recipe and cut it up into smaller sizes and freeze the dough.  It makes it super easy to have outstandingly fresh made pizza dough - ESPECIALLY FOR THIS RECIPE.

Crunchy outside, soft bread inside, cheesy gooey goodness!

2 Tablespoons olive oil
Leftover meatloaf for filling
1 cup tomato sauce
1 teaspoon of Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon chopped fresh Basil
1 cup sliced sauteed mushrooms
Salt and pepper
A dash of cayenne pepper
½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese
½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
½ shredded Parmesan cheese

COOKING MUSIC SELECTION: O Mio Babbino Caro - Giacomo Puccini

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees.  Hand stretch your pizza dough with a little flour on the counter to keep it from sticking. Roll out to an 8 by 12 rectangle on a lightly greased baking stone or cookie sheet.

Break up the meatloaf into small crumbles.  Mix in about 1/4 cup of tomato sauce and several shakes of your Worcestershire sauce.

Spread the meat evenly across the crust like you would a pizza, add the sautéed sliced mushrooms, Basil and top with cheese. Starting from one end, roll up the crust like you would a jelly roll.  Pinch the edges to seal tight and place seam down on your lightly greased pan.

To ensure your dough is cooked all the way through, cover it with foil and bake for 25 minutes, then remove the foil and cook for another 5 to 15 minutes until a deep golden brown. Serve with a nice green salad and ENJOY!

This is a fabulous easy dinner recipe to feed a crowd!
