Meatball Calzones

This is a great weeknight meal because it's so easy to throw together but it looks and tastes like you've slaved for hours! No one has to know any different! ;)

The recipe calls for homemade meatballs and if you'd like to make homemade meatballs for this recipe by means, go right ahead! I had a bag of turkey meatballs in my freezer from Trader Joe's and so I went searching to find a recipe that I could use them in. I came across this site called Group Recipes and found this meatball calzone recipe. Jordan really likes calzones so I wanted to give it a try. You can click on the link above to take you to the original recipe.

1 bag frozen meatballs - mine were turkey meatballs
1 can Pillsbury dough sheets
Mozzerella cheese, shredded
1 egg white, lightly beaten
Italian seasoning
Spaghetti sauce, warmed

Bake/cook meatballs according to package, set aside. On a floured surface, roll dough into an 18-in. x 12-in. rectangle. Spoon meatballs and a few handfulls of mozzarella cheese down the center.

Fold dough over filling; press edges firmly to seal.

Place seam side down on greased baking sheets. Careful, this is a bit tricky! Brush the top with egg white; sprinkle with Italian seasoning.

Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.

Doesn't that look delicious?!

Make sure to serve with a side of spaghetti sauce. Enjoy!
