French Dip Calzones

Bloggers, do you ever find that you can never catch up? I feel like I am one step behind on getting posts published, or commenting on other bloggies blogs.

Not to mention keeping up with all the various social networking sites, Foodbuzz, Tasty Kitchen, Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook.... the list NEVER ends.

I'm also a little frazzled with the idea of Google Friend Connect ending on March 1st. Why am I JUST hearing about his now... where the heck have I been!

What happens to all of those people who just follow my blog through Friend Connect? Do they loose touch? Will they some how get notifications of new posts somehow?

I really need to get with it!

Today's recipe... is something I made and photographed MONTHS ago! It's still super duper.

Yes I just said super duper...........

French Dip Calzones

1 lb roast beef (deli slices)
Sliced Swiss Cheese
1 package of your favorite pizza dough
15 oz's  cup beef stock
1 tbs worchestire sauce  
1/2 cup onion diced
1 tbs olive oil
1 tsp sugar


Divide your dough into 4 equal sections roll or stretch into circles, place several slices of roast beef and Swiss cheese in the center. Fold over sealing the dough shut. 

Slice 3 small slits in the top and brush with olive oil 

Place calzones on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.

Bake at 400 for about 15-20 minutes or until dough is cooked through and golden on top.

For the Au Jus dip.

In a medium sauce pan on medium low heat  caramelize onions in the olive oil, takes about 15. Add in stock, worchestire sauce, and sugar. Mix together and simmer until it has reduced in half about 15-20 minutes.

  1. Okay, these are calling my name! It must be a sign, I have been craving french dip SO bad. As for teh GFC thing...I have no idea. I think it's okay (for now) for blogger blogs. A lot of people are using Linky followers, but you can't put those in your reader, you have to go to a separate website. Argh!

  2. French. Dip. Calzones. YOU ARE A GENIUS! I better not let hubs see this in the next 10 minutes or we will be staying IN for birthday dinner and making these instead of me getting the night off from cooking! :) Love 'em!

  3. And i thought I'm the only one who can;t keep up with blog updates, Google reader, social media .. phew, glad to hear I'm not alone.
    I think Google+ will take over Google Friend Connect. We'll have to see :)
    Happy weekend Carrie

  4. This is a brilliant idea. I love the French dip all easily handled in a calzone.

  5. Sounds great. Wonder how it would be with croissant dough instead of pizza dough? What do you think?

    1. You could certainly do that as well!
