I love getting to spend time with my boys in the kitchen. (Even when they pretend like that are “TapeFace” – America’s Got Talent contestant – and only talk to me with their eyes.)
But today, it’s Cuatro who is helping me with these calzones! He continues to prove himself as a tiny sous chef and I enjoyed watching and helping him get these ready for the oven. Rolling dough is always a huge hit with toddlers – something about the cause and effect, and the fact that they helped make their meal!
I ended up making a second tray and put some in the freezer. I’m hoping they’ll stay in the freezer until school starts, so I’ve got a quick lunch box option. But I don’t think they will…unless I hide them in the back corner. (Maybe I should go do that right now??? lol)
I won’t…I’ll plan to make another batch of these when it’s closer to school starting!
I’m planning on sharing a “Breakfast Biscuit Calzone” recipe soon too – same concept, but eggs and bacon inside instead of the pizza toppings! And probably salsa in place of the pizza sauce. I’m drooling just thinking about those…
Anywho….hope you enjoy these biscuit calzones!
