Breakfast Idea: Bacon Cheese Calzone
Hello, my dears! Doesn’t a bacon, egg, and cheese calzone recipe sound delicious? The weather cooling down even a smidge has me craving a hearty and warm breakfast in place of summer smoothies. This tasty breakfast calzone is exactly what I’d like to wake up to on fall mornings. The beauty of this cheese calzone recipe is that you can get it ready at night. Have the family add their choice of ingredients to each calzone. And it only takes 15 minutes to cook!
13.8 oz pizza dough, 1 tube of prepared dough
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup shredded cheese
6 slices bacon, chopped
salt and pepper to taste
fresh parsley (optional)
fresh basil (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside.
Place the egg white of one egg into a small bowl and set aside. Place the yolk, with the remaining 5 eggs into a mixing bowl. Add milk, salt, and pepper and beat well. Heat in a nonstick skillet over medium heat, stirring constantly until eggs are cooked. Remove from heat and set aside.
Unroll the pizza dough and spread it out with your fingers. Place a 4" round cookie cutter onto the dough and make sure you can cut 8 circles out of the dough. If not, spread the dough out a big more, so 8 circles will fit. Cut out dough and fill each half with eggs, bacon, parsley, basil, and cheese, dividing evenly among the 8 rounds.
Fold the dough over to create a half moon and secure the edges with a fork. Place onto a baking sheet. Whisk the egg white and use a pastry brush to brush the tops of the dough. Poke holes into the center.
Bake for 15 minutes or until bottoms begin to brown. Let set for a minute or two, because the filling inside will be hot, before serving.
