    These were a good start to a recipe. I used my homemade calzone dough instead of pre packaged. They are bland and just a step above a plain turkey sandwich... I think Ill add a cranberry BBQ sauce inside as well if I make again.

    I loved this! One of my favorite recipes. Very quick to make and easy. I will be doing this again even if it's not Thanksgiving! The bacon complimented this dish very well.
