Superbowl is coming up very soon. It should be an interesting match up right? I am cheering on the Seahawks. I never did like New England. With all this controversy over the balls, if they did or they didn’t do it, just step up and take some responsibility. Somehow those balls got deflated in the playoff game, in my opinion maybe that game between the Colts and New England should be replayed.
Anyway, the Superbowl is a great Sunday game to have good party food, is it not? I admit I love creating foods for a party. It is fun to make things everyone can snack on.
Being from Pittsburgh, we call sub sandwiches hoagies. I love a good Italian hoagie. The layers of pepperoni, salami, ham, with cheese and Italian dressing, oh does it taste so good.
It was the Italian Hoagie that helped inspire this idea I had for a recipe, well that and the fact that the super market had Grands biscuits on sale 10 for $10 and I bought a bunch to create recipes with. I recently had worked with Mezzetta on the Antipasto Flat Bread. I had this jar of caramalized onions and sweet peppers from that but did not use. It came to me why not use that with ingredients to make an Italian hoagie but instead of doing it on a toasted bun, why not do like a calzone. I have all these Grands biscuits, that would make for a good pizza dough for this. I was thinking it could be like a stuffed sandwich. So I ran with the idea and it came out so good. This perfect for the big game that is coming up if your having a small gathering.
A simple Italian Hoagie stuffed inside Grands biscuit to create a yummy calzone. A recipe from Seduction in the Kitchen
- 1 can of Grands Biscuits
- 4 slices of salami
- 4 slices of sandwich pepperoni
- 2 slices of Italian ham
- 2 slices of sweet capicola
- 2 slices of provolone cheese
- 1/8 cup Italian dressing
- Mezzetta Caramelized onions and sweet peppers
- Preheat your oven to 375
- Open up the cans of the Grands biscuits and take two of the biscuits and start working them together and stretch it into making a small circle.
- Do the same thing to the rest the biscuits, taking 2 at a time and making them into one circle of dough. You should have 4 circles when you are done.
- Take two of the circles and brush it with with some Italian dressing.
- Then on each of the Italian dressing you brushed onto the circles, layer on a slice of Italian ham onto each circle. Then add 2 slices of salami, make sure the salami is over lapping each other and not on top of each other, you want it to stretch across the dough. Do the same with 2 slices of the pepperoni. Next add the capicola and the provolone cheese.
- Finally top each piece off with some of the Mezzetta Caramelized onions and sweet peppers. drizzle some of the Italian dressing on the top of everything.
- Cover each of the rounds with the remaining 2 dough circles. pinch the top and bottom of it so that the calzone is completely enclosed with the dough
- Pierce the top with a fork a few times and place the 2 calzones on a cookie sheet and bake for about 25-30 minutes till the calzones are a nice golden brown.
- Take out the oven, and ENJOY!
