Turkey and Swiss Calzone

Makes 8 servings

  • 4 cups flour divided
  • 4 1/2 teaspoons quick rise yeast
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 1/2 cups cubed cooked turkeys (or use boiled or canned chicken)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded Swiss cheese
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon style mustard
  • 1 egg beaten

1.  (You can skip this step and use thawed frozen bread dough if you prefer)  In a mixing bowl, combine 3 c. flour, yeast, brown sugar and salt.  In a saucepan, heat the water and oil to 120-130 degrees.  Add to dry ingredients and beat until smooth.  Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough.  Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic.  (about 4 minutes)  Cover and let rise in a warm place for 15 minutes.

2.  Meanwhile, in a bowl, combine the turkey, cheese and mustard.

3.  Divide dough into eight pieces.  On a floured surface, roll each piece into a 7″ circle.  Place filling on half of each circle.  Fold dough over filling; pinch seams to seal.  Place on greased baking sheets.  Brush with egg.  Bake at 375 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
