Since it has been a while since my last posting, I feel obligated to explain, at least a little. It all started early January, when we got sick, all of us. Started with my son, then me, then my husband. It just lingered on forever, or so it seemed. Then the ice and snow decided to come to
This recipe comes from The Pioneer Woman Cookbook and I have to say it is definitely a keeper in my book. With the combination of meats, cheeses and the crust, oh the crust, this recipe is just wonderful. It is hearty, tasty and you can add as many extras as your heart desires. For me that means jalapeños of course. The extra spice is a bonus in my book, however, you can add just about anything that you and yours like. Make it simple or make it as elaborate as you desire, the final product is still, Simply Delicious.
4 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. kosher salt
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
Pour 1 and 1/2 cups warm water in a bowl and sprinkle in yeast.
Combine the flour and salt in a mixing bowl. With an electric mixer on low speed, drizzle in olive oil until just incorporated.
In a separate bowl, gently stir the yeast/water mixture. Drizzle it into the flour/oil mixture; mix until the dough forms a ball. (You can also mix by hand until the dough comes together.)
1/2 pound hot breakfast sausage
1 pound ground turkey or beef
1/2 of a onion, diced
1/2 to 1 whole jalapeño, seeded and chopped
8 oz. whole milk ricotta cheese
1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese
1 egg, beaten
Salt and Pepper
Milk for brushing the tops of calzones
Preheat oven to 450°F. In a large skillet combine the ground turkey or beef, sausage and onion. Brown over medium heat. Drain excess grease. Add the Rotel. Stir to combine, and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
Add the cooled meat mixture to the cheese mixture and stir gently to combine.
