Whatcha Looking For?

What's for dinner tonight??? Stromboli

Things have been so crazy in our lives this past few days that I haven't been thinking about what to serve my family for dinner until its time for dinner.  Tonight I walked in at 6:15 and had no clue what to make but in 30 minutes we had a yummy dinner on the table.  Here's what I did.

First I sliced up 2 small yellow onions and threw them in a pan to saute with some olive oil.  Turned the oven onto 400 degrees to preheat.  While those things are happening I rolled out a tube of pre-made pizza dough but you can also use a tube of french bread dough.  I spread a thin layer of dijon mustard all over the dough and then added a layer of Swiss cheese.  On top of the Swiss cheese I threw on the sauteed onions and then some deli smoked turkey.  Roll it up the long way, cut a few slits in the top and bake it for about 20 minutes.  Throw together a salad and you have a great meal. 

The best part is you can make this a bunch of different ways.  I have done it with pizza sauce, mozzarella, pepperoni.  Ham, spicy brown mustard & cheddar cheese.  I've done the turkey/Swiss version with sliced green onions instead of sauteed onions.  This is really a "clean out the fridge" kind of dish.  And the kids love it every time!
