Turkey Sausage Stromboli by Trader Joe

image As you all know, I try my best to make a lot of home cooked meals, even if it is just a simple salad or sandwich. Sometimes it is really nice to have something quick and easy to pop in the oven. Trader Joe’s always comes to the rescue. First, let me just say that I love when my husband goes to the grocery store. While I love grocery shopping, I tend to get a lot of the same things and most of them tend to be healthy. When he goes, he gets all of the healthy stuff, but there are also always fun surprises that I would never buy myself but would definitely help out eating! Trader Joe’s turkey sausage stromboli was one of these surprises. So Sunday after I returned from our fabulous blogger lunch, I was still a little hungry, and the hubs was starving. I decided to pop the stromboli in as it was chilly and we were pretty tired from a late Halloween. These offer microwave instructions, but I had a fear of soggy crust so we waited the 26 minutes that they require to cook in the oven. When I pulled them out of the oven, I was immediately surprised by how crispy the dough had gotten. The smell was amazing, tomatoes, garlic, and a slight hint of spicy sausage. I don’t have a photo of the finished product because I butchered it pretty badly when I cut it into pieces for us. I was extremely surprised and pleased at how crispy the outside and the slight chewiness of the inside dough. The sausage was flavorful, not very spicy at all, but it tasted great. This could easily be something that you ordered in from your favorite pizzeria. Though I don’t like to eat a lot of meat or prepackaged foods, I will definitely be storing a couple of these in the freezer for snowy nights when we don’t feel like cooking and don’t want to have a delivery driver out in bad weather.

    I’m with you there – I always come home with a few extra surprises I would never pick up on my own when I go to the grocery store with my husband!

    I had the stromboli before, and it’s really good. Like you, I like to cook as much as possible from scratch, but it’s so nice to have some good frozen food on hand. And TJ’s hardly ever disappoints…
