1 tablespoon Sugar
1 teaspoon Salt
1 package Quick-rise active dry yeast
1 cup Hot Water; 125-130 degrees
1 tablespoon Butter; softened
1/4 cup Thousand Island dressing
1/2 pound Corned Beef; thinly sliced
1/2 pound Turkey Breast; thinly sliced
1/4 pound Swiss Cheese; sliced
1 8-oz can Sauerkraut

Caraway seed; (optional)

Original recipe makes 4



1. Set aside 1 cup flour

2. In a large bowl, mix remaining flour, sugar, salt and yeast.

3. Stir in hot water and butter. Mix in only enough reserved flour to make a soft dough.

4. Knead 4 minutes on a floured surface.

5. Coat a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray and roll dough to a 14x10 inch rectangle.

6. Spread Thousand Island dressing down the center third of the dough length.

7. Top with alternating layers of beef, turkey, cheese and sauerkraut.

8. Make cuts from filling to edges of dough at 1-inch intervals along sides of filling.

9. Alternating sides, fold strips at an angle across filling.

10. Cover loaf with a towel and place in a slightly warm (120 degrees) oven.


Brush with egg white and sprinkle with caraway seed.

Let dough rise 15 minutes and remove from oven.

Reheat oven to 400 degrees.

Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until loaf is light to golden brown. Allow to cool slightly, cut into 1-inch thick portions and serve warm.

Refrigerate leftovers; reheat to serve.

Just made this and it turned out awesome! The only work came from making the dough which took little time. I was worried about the sauerkraut making this into a leaky mess but nope, it was golden and completely cooked through. Thanks for this twist on a Stromboli :-)
