BREAKFAST CALZONES

Five of my most favorite ladies (4 daughters, 1 daughter-in-love) and I are headed to the mountains this weekend for a girl’s weekend getaway. This will be our first girls only getaway EVER! We are all super excited, however, the beloved is wondering what he is going to eat while we are gone. His talents are innumerable but cooking is not one of them. I prepared a few things for him to have on hand and this was one of them.

This is a great recipe if you are looking for “prepare ahead” breakfast foods. They can be refrigerated or frozen. To reheat, just place them in a pre-heated oven for a few minutes or they can be heated in the microwave.

INGREDIENTS
1 recipe bread dough (or you can use frozen bread rolls, thawed and allowed to rise)
1 pound bulk sausage, crumbled and cooked
8 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup half n half (or whole milk)
1 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
salt and pepper, to taste

Prepare your bread dough. Form into 2-3″ inch balls.

Brown the sausage. Remove the sausage to a bowl lined with paper towels to remove excess oil.

Mix the beaten eggs with the half n half adding salt and pepper to taste. Scramble the eggs in the pan the sausage was cooked in. Do not overcook the eggs as they will continue to cook in the oven.

TO ASSEMBLE:
Roll the dough balls into circles. Place 2-3 tablespoons eggs (depending on the size of your dough) onto each roll. Top with sausage and cheese. Do not overfill or your dough will break. Fold over the dough making a half-moon shape. Using a fork, press the edges of the dough to seal. Brush with butter or an egg wash.

It would be easy to substitute ham or bacon for the sausage. You could also add peppers, onions, mushrooms, or spinach to this. It’s a versatile recipe so use your imagination!
