Since my bread making class and my trip out to Mr. Martin’s farm last weekend, I was inspired to use some of the goodies I had purchased from the farm and try my hand at baking something I’ve never tried before.  My friend G was coming down for Sunday night dinner and so I decided to be creative and bake a stromboli.  If any of you remember my trip to Scarpetta (my February restaurant of the month), the stromboli they offer at the beginning of the meal was one of the memorable foods I gobbled down that night.  For my stromboli, I chose to use the same honey whole wheat bread recipe that I learned at my bread making class and the filling: summer sausage (purchased at St. Jacob’s farmer’s market), sundried tomatoes and mozzarella.  After kneading the bread and leaving it to rise, I rolled it out and spread a layer of the tomatoes, the oil it was packed in, summer sausage and mozzarella – then rolled it up and sealed the edges.  I finished it by brushing an egg wash on top to make it pretty.  I have to admit, for a first try – it was tasty!

My ingredients for the stromboli: sundried tomatoes, summer sausage and mozzarella.
