Calzones first thing in the morning? Today folks, we’re giving you the best of both worlds.
I like to play a conservative game when it comes to my breakfasts. When we’re out for brunch, I’ll always opt for a classic egg-and-sausage plate. Lately though, I’ve been feeling a bit more adventurous.
My breakfast calzones are perfect for those that are on-the-go. When I made my first batch, I stuffed a couple in a sandwich bag and gave them to my husband. It was nice to send him off with something delicious to munch on while he was on the road.
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
½ cup butter, cold, cut into Tablespoons
¾ cup buttermilk, cold
1/2 cup cheese
5-6 sausages, cooked and chopped into tiny pieces
Preheat oven to 325F
In a medium-sized frying pan, melt a tablespoon of butter over medium heat.
In a bowl, beat together eggs and milk and add to frying pan.
Stir constantly until the eggs are fluffy and fully cooked, remove from heat.
In a large bowl, mix flour, sugar, baking powder & salt. Add remaining butter and cut using a pastry blender. Add cold buttermilk mix until dough forms a ball.
Roll dough onto a lightly floured surface and cut into 4-5 inch circles.
Take 1-2 tablespoons of the scrambled egg mixture, a sprinkle of cheese and a bit of sausage and place in the centre of the dough circle.
Bring the edges of the dough together to form a half circle, pinch the ends closed. Place on a baking sheet and repeat until you’ve used up all of the scrambled eggs, sausage and cheese.
Bake for 8-12 minutes, until golden brown.
