2 1/2 cups warm water
1 Tablespoon yeast
(stir and let those two sit for 5 minutes)
1/3 cup of white sugar
1/3 cup of cooking oil
2 heaping teaspoons of salt
6 1/2 to 7 cups of flour
Put all ingredients into a mixer bowl and stir until blended. Turn on a medium setting for 5-6 minutes to knead to a nice dough like consistency. Let raise for at least an hour.
1 1/2 lb lean ground beef
1 onion (chopped)
2 cups cubed prepared cheese product
( I used Velveeta)
1/2 cup Thousand Island dressing
2 teaspoons yellow mustard
In 12-inch skillet, cook beef and onion over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until beef is thoroughly cooked; drain if necessary. Stir in cheese, dressing and the mustard. Reduce heat to low; cook 2 tp3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until cheese is melted.
Spread 1/3 of this dough recipe out on a greased cookie or baking sheet.
Spread 1/3 of the filling on the dough and fold over one side of the dough and then the other...sealing the ends.
Melt 1/2 stick of margarine or butter, add about 1/3-1/2 cup Parmesan cheese to the butter and stir it up. Then take a pastry brush and paint it on the top of the Stromboli, nice and thick.
Bake in preheated 375 degree oven for about 25 minutes or until the tops are nice and golden brown. Make sure the bottom of the Stromboli doesn't get too dark. The butter/margarine melts and can cause the bottom to get brown very quickly.
