A Couple Calzones

This year I'm entering Eating Your Words over at Tangled Noodle and Savor the Thyme. I'm entering with this:Why did I choose this exactly? Well, I'm not really sure, it just kind of came to me. Heh. It's filled with chicken, ranch dressing, mozzarella and broccoli. It was, as a matter of fact, wicked good. It wasn't too complex, I just made the calzone, rubbed it with olive oil and then wrote it out in shredded cheese on top.The olive oil made the cheese cling, otherwise it never would have worked. That one is actually my second attempt at it, on the first one the cheese was too thick and it came out rather poorly. See? The C looks like an I. So does the E, now that I look at it. Heh. But it was also wicked good. It was filled with a couple spicy burgers, ketchup, mustard, caramelized onion, cheddar and mozzarella.One of my favorite filling combos.

I had meant to enter the Challenge last year, but completely flaked so I'm really glad I got off my butt and did it this time around. It's going until March 31st, so you still have some time to enter. Everyone should, not only is it fun but the prize is an aebleskiver pan and eternal glory! And really, who doesn't want aebleskivers and glory?

Wouldn't it be cool if all food said how good it was on it? It would make it a lot easier to decide what to order in a restaurant.

These look amazing!

well..well..well..now that I'm no longer a doughaphobic, I might just be making me a calzone! Thanks for the idea! Love your wicked good version.

Tangled Noodle said...

You should print this on a t-shirt!! I'm so happy that you decided to re-try although how hard could it have been to eat these words - both calzones are awesome. Your official entry sounds absolutely tasty but spicy burger, cheddar, mozz and caramelized onions has my stomach grumbling with hunger now. 8-)

Thanks so much for participating in Eating Your Words!

I love caramelized onions on anything! My favorite pizza is pear, onions, and blue cheese. I'll have to try that cheddar, mozz, onion combo! Those really do look fantastic!
