Ham And Cheese Calzones

Or in my family we call these hot pockets.  If we call them calzones my children won't eat them.  If we call them hot pockets they eat.  Go figure.

Ingredients
Dough:
1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
1 teaspoon white sugar
1 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
2 1/2 cups bread flour
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
Filling:
ham (I use canadian bacon for pizza)
sliced swiss cheese


DIRECTIONS



  1. In a medium bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.

  2. Stir in flour, salt and oil. Beat until smooth. Let rest for 5 minutes.

  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 15x10-inch rectangle.  Cut into 6 equal rectangles.

  4.  Top with ham and cheese.  Brush edges of dough with water.  Fold dough over filling to opposite edge, streching if necessary.  Seal edges with tines of a fork.

  5. Place calzones on baking sheet.  Prick tops with a fork.  Bake about 15 minutes or until lightly golden in a preheated 400 degree oven.  Place on wire rack until cool enough to eat.


WHAT IT COST ME:
canadian bacon = $2.99
swiss cheese = $1.67
TOTAL = $4.66
