I make this stromboli in advance and wrap in foil.  It’s still warm when I get to my tailgate, and all I have to do there is slice it and enjoy.  So good…

1/2 lb ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 (32 oz) pkg frozen bread dough, thawed and divided
2 TBSP prepared mustard, divided
12 (3/4 oz) slices cheddar cheese, divided
2 cups (8 oz) shredded mozzerella cheese, divided
2 (3 1/2 oz) pkgs sliced pepperoni, divided
1/2 lb thinly sliced ham
2 tsp dried Italian seasoning, divided
Vegetable oil

Brown ground beef and onion. Drain well and set aside.

For each stromboli, place one loaf of bread dough on a lightly floured surface and roll into a 12-inch square.

Spread 1 TBSP mustard over dough to within 1/2 inch of the edges.

Layer 3 slices cheese, 1/2 cup mozzerella, half of pepperoni, half of the ham and half of the beef mixture lengthwise down center third of dough leaving a 1/2 inch border at top and bottom.

Sprinkle with 1 tsp of Italian seasoning. Fold each side of dough over filling; pinch seam and ends to seal.

Repeat for a 2nd stromboli. Place on greased baking sheets and brush loaves with oil. Back at 350 degrees F for 25 minutes or until lightly browned.

Cut each loaf into 8 slices. ***If taking to a tailgate – allow to cool slightly then transfer to heavy duty tin foil. At your destination, open the foil and then slice.
