Bacon and Cheese Breakfast Calzones

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, right? And since Nick comes from a long line of hearty breakfast eaters I feel a slight sense of obligation to make breakfast every weekend. However, today he got more of a brunch. I found this cool recipe for Breakfast Calzones and decided to get it a try. I tweaked the recipe to my own liking - it called for pepperoni and mozzarella and instead I used cooked bacon and marble cheese. Simple little changes to normal recipes make them your own... don't be afraid to try!

So these are the ingredients you will need:

  •  4 eggs
  • 1/4 milk
  • dash pepper
  • 2 teaspoons margarine or butter
  • 1 (13.8 oz) can refrigerated pizza crust 
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese
  • 4 slices bacon


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
  • Spray large cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray
  • In medium bowl, combine eggs, milk and pepper, beat until well blended. Melt margarine in medium nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add egg mixture; cook 3 to 5 minutes or until eggs are set but moist sirring occasionally
  • Unroll dough; pat to form 14 x 10 inch rectangle
  • Cut dough into four 7x5 inch rectangles
  • Divide cheese evenly onto half of each rectangle to within 1/2 inch of edges
  • Top cheese with bacon and eggs
  • Fold un-topped dough over filling, turnover fashion; press edges firmly to seal
  • Place on sprayed cookie sheet
  • I crumbled some bacon on top and sprinkled some cheese [optional]
  • Bake for 11 to 13 minutes or until golden brown 



Until next time, happy breakfasting! :)

Wow, it's like a breakfast burrito, but even better. I can't believe I just said that. Not much beats a breakfast burrito. Seriously, looks great.
