These Ham, Egg, and Cheese Breakfast Calzones are perfect for on-the-go morning meals, or light dinner with a salad. Make a double batch and freeze them for busy mornings.
Mornings can be a struggle fitting in good breakfast when everyone is busy getting ready for school and work. It’s easy to just pour a bowl of cereal or grab a pack of pastries and go. Not very filling and can get quite boring after awhile.
The two best things I love about these Ham, Egg, and Cheese Breakfast Calzones are that they are filling AND portable. Another great feature of this hand-held breakfast meal is that you can make a double batch, let them cool, and freeze them.
They’re easy to reheat in the microwave or the oven. They last in the refrigerator for about a week and can be easily heated in the microwave. Kids can grab one or two as they run to the bus, and you can grab a couple to take in the car on the way to work.
Now, I am not saying breakfast needs to be eaten on the go all the time, but reality does dictate that at times we run late!
Alternatively, you can make a batch of these for dinner and pair it with a nice salad. Quick and easy dinner for busy nights.
So simple to make using Rhodes Bread dough balls! The little balls of dough can be thawed on a plate for a couple hours or overnight in the refrigerator. Easy! Rhodes Bread products make my life easy, especially when the family wants fresh bread or rolls with a meal.

Tips for Making Ham, Egg, and Cheese Breakfast Calzones:
The beauty of this recipe is that you can make as many calzones as you need. You can thaw the dough overnight in the refrigerator overnight or on a plate for a couple of hours.
Once the dough is thawed, roll or pat it into circles. Add your fillings to half of each circle of dough, and then fold over and seal.
Place on sheet pan and brush with egg wash. You can add chopped chives, Parmesan cheese, or whatever seasoning you want to the tops of the calzones.
Once the Breakfast Calzones are baked, let cool a moment before serving. If you are freezing them, allow them to cool on a wire rack completely first.
