calzone on the George Foreman Grill

Erika | May 14, 200311:18 AM     3

I admit to being embarrassed at the fact that I own one, but I love it anyway, since dinner has to take less than a half an hour, most nights. I was experimenting with it, and thought about croque monsieurs. It doesn't work that well, since the cheese drips out the sides, but then I thought, what if there were a way of containing the cheese?

So . . . on my "family size" grill, I took a half a pound of pizza dough, and filled it with leftover cooked sausage, sauteed spinach and onions, and some ricotta, herbs, etc., sealed it up, and put it on the grill, sprayed with some Olive Oil from my Misto. In eight minutes, I had a great, crusty, risen-on-the-inside calzone, with a side of marinara heated up in the microwave.

Has anyone else got good filling combinations?
