      OMG, that is one of my favorite sandwiches of all time. You just can't find it outside of Bloomington. For those that have not been there, a stromboli in Bloomington is more like a sub that has crumbled sausage, tomato sauce, and cheese. It is served with a side of bread and butter pickles. I normally am not a fan of that kind but they just work with the strom. If you are looking around for good ones in Bloomington, I can also recommend Cafe Pizzeria right down the street from Nicks.

      Are you in Bloomington for a while? I grew up there and my parents still live just south of town in Smithville so I have a few other suggestions for you if need them.

        So I realize that this person only posted once and disappeared but I am just bringing this thread back up to say that I visited my parents last week for New Year's and on our way into town I called my dad and told him and my mom to meet us at Nick's. My wife and I both got the Stromboli (hers without onion, mine with) and they were just as good as ever. It's defnitely a must have if you visit Bloomington.

            I agree. There is nothing I have been able to find anywhere that is like a Hot Strom from Nick's in Bloomington. Outrageously great. First introduced to them when I was a student at IU many moons ago, and have never found anything similar in the US ever since.

            Longing for a Hot Strom every since , and not being able to find one anywhere other than in Bloomington, I have resorted to recreating my own at home.

            Here is a Utube video that gives a good idea as to how to make one. I have been able to come close, but still have yet to get the pizza sauce right yet.

              I was searching for a stromboli recipe, and couldn't find anything like the stromboli I know, from Nick's English Hut in Bloomington. And wow, I know this post is old, but I went to IU and loved Nick's stromboli!  I have only found it one other  place where it comes close, Arni's Pizza in New Albany, Indiana and Floyds Knobs, Indiana.  It is a little different but pretty close.  Nick's is the best - a real must if you ever go to Bloomington. Don't miss it!

                Steves Pizza King also has Stroms like the type you are looking for,I goto the New Albany location and sit in the train section with my daughter.
                Arnis pizza is good also.

                  Agreed!  Arni's pizza is great.  I'll have to try Steve's too, thanks for the info.

                    Like they say, "Meet you at Arni's".
