With store bought dough and a few classic breakfast staples, you can whip up a batch of easy, satisfying, portable breakfast calzones.
Another breakfast recipe means another recipe that we don’t actually eat for breakfast. Like so many recipes before this one, we enjoy these breakfast calzones for supper. We’re just suckers for bacon and eggs; top it with cheese and wrap it in dough and we’re powerless to resist.
Like so many of the recipes I share, this one can be completely customized depending on what your family likes and what you have on hand. Swap sausage for the bacon, load it up with veggies, or add a few spoonfuls of salsa. Whatever you decide to include on the inside gets all wrapped up inside the handy dough pocket, making these breakfast calzones ideal for breakfast- or lunch or dinner- on the go.
I imagine these little pockets would be fairly freezer-friendly, but I’ve yet to give that a shot (though I can vouch for the freezability of these homemade pizza pockets). Let me know if you give it a try with this recipe!
1 can refrigerated pizza dough
salt and pepper
4 slices of bacon
1/2 c. shredded cheese
Preheat oven according to pizza dough instructions. Scramble the eggs and cook the bacon (I cook the bacon in the microwave while the eggs are cooking to save time). Be sure to sprinkle the eggs generously with salt and pepper.
Unroll the pizza dough and use a rolling pin to roll it into a 12 inch by 10 inch rectangle. Cut the dough in half vertically and then in half horizontally to form four rectangles. The rectangles should be about five by six inches.
Cut each bacon slice in half and place both pieces on half of the dough. Place one quarter of the scrambled eggs on top of the bacon and top with two tablespoons of cheese. Fold half of the dough over the cheese and use a fork to seal the calzone closed.
Bake according to pizza dough directions, or until calzones are golden. Serve warm- they’re wonderful dipped in salsa!
There’s more breakfast where that came from! How about bacon, egg, and cheese breakfast sandwiches or foolproof waffles?
