Turkey Broccoli & Cheese Stromboli

These are a favorite of ours. I kind of forgot about them till Monday when I was planning my menu for the week, and we were all glad I remembered! I love to serve these for parties and big get togethers, and you can totally get creative with your fillings.

3/4 C Warm water
1 Tb. Sugar
2 Tb. softened butter
1/2 tsp. Salt
2 large eggs
1 packet yeast
3/4 Cup flour
1 1/2 Cups flour

Mix together first 4 ingredients, then add eggs, yeast and 3/4 cup flour. Mix with your beaters for 3 minutes. Then add 1 1/2 Cups of flour, and knead bread for 5 minutes (adding flour as needed). Then roll your dough out on a floured surface in a long rectangle shape. Spread softened butter on the center of your dough, and add the fillings of your choice. Roll up sealing all of your edges, then lift and put on pizza pan, and form a circle. Bake at 350 for 25-35 minutes. Brush with butter while warm, cut and serve.
Tonight we softened a bit of butter, and added some minced garlic to it, and it made a great flavor. We also sauteed some broccoli in olive oil, with a packet of Italian Seasoning and cut up some deli turkey, and shredded cheddar cheese. It was delicious!

We have had this with shredded roast beef, sauteed onions and mushrooms, and provolone and that was really good too.

You need to make a cookbook out of your blog. You could do it on blurb.com and then, I could purchase one of your books. My family always loves the recipes I try. i'm serious about the cookbook...:)
