The brisk wind whipped leaves around my ankles as I pushed open the door of a small Italian cafe. Inside the aromas of garlic and yeast mingled with sugar and coffee, brought on a strange sensation of both exhilaration and ease.
I swept my disheveled hair out of my face, sat down at a table, and focused on the deli case. What would it be today? Panini? A cannoli? Thumbprint cookies maybe?
Then I saw something that captured my attention. A loaf, of sorts, obviously stuffed with filling. But this was no pastry or hand pie. This was enormous and inviting with a hearty crust. Just the kind of thing to nosh on a chilly day.
I walked up to the counter and waited my turn. When asked what I would like to order I answered, “May I ask what that is?”
“What is inside of it?”
“Everrrrything wonderful” she replied.
That was all I needed to know. I bought the entire Stromboli loaf, ate two warm slices there in the cafe, then took the rest home to share with my roommates. Thus begun my love-affair with Stromboli.
Luckily, it doesn’t have to be 20 degrees outside to enjoy a hearty Stromboli Recipe. This classic stromboli recipe makes a large golden loaf that is perfect to take on picnics or to a party.
When sliced, the lovely swirling pieces relieve a little bit of “everything wonderful”: Italian sausage, artichoke hearts, tender basil leaves, green olives, molten cheese, and zesty marinara.
