Quick & Easy Ham and Cheese Calzone

Posted on

Quick and easy; that seems to be our food motto these days.  With Church & school functions, work, and sports, making a ham and cheese calzone is just one of the easy recipes I’ve been cooking up lately.    It’s a meal that to grab and go which we frequently do with basketball season in full bloom.  Concession stands have drained me this school year so I try to get most of us full before we ever get to the game. Know what I mean?  Shopping at Walmart has helped a great deal with my budget and time constraints.  Where do y’all shop?

I honestly had no plan for the dough when making this so bare with me.  The neat thing about this meal idea, is that you can put anything you want inside the calzone.  I did simple ingredients for us because we are on a budget but you could definitely go all out!  I bought crescent roll dough and ended up mushing it all together and separating into 3 dough balls for 3 calzones.  Hey, it ain’t fancy but it worked!

Recipe: Ham and Cheese Calzone

Ingredients

  • 1 can of Crescent Rolls
  • Cheese (I used cheddar cheese but my husband said he’d probably like some sliced or Velveeta in his next time)
  • Deli Ham

Instructions

  1. Mush all the dough together, separate into 3 parts, and roll them out just a little bigger than the size of your open hand.
  2. Pile in as much cheese and deli ham that you want and seal each calzone.
  3. Bake at 375′ for 15 minutes or until golden brown.

Quick notes

I recommend you precook any fresh ingredients beforehand; mushrooms, onions, etc.

Variations

Beforehand, I sauteed some fresh mushrooms and put them in my husband’s calzones. You can put anything you want! GO CRAZY!!

    Did you use 1 crescent roll per calzone or mush the entire tube into one ball?

    Bet this would be good with swiss cheese also.

      I squished the entire tube together and pinched off 3 balls out of it. LOL And I bet swiss would be delicious!

    This looks great Lori! I was even thinking roast beef, cheese and green chilis! The possibilities are endless! Fun idea for a teen party too….lots of ingredients and then them make up their own.
