Prep

  1. Hard boil eggs - Cover eggs by 1” / 2.5cm of water. Salt generously and then bring to a boil. Once water has reached a boil, take it off the heat and just let it sit for 11 minutes. If not making right away, store with shells on in the fridge. (Can be done up to 3 days ahead) 

  2. Bacon - Heat an oven to 400F / 204C degrees. Line a sheet pan with foil and then place a cooling rack in the sheet pan. Lay out bacon on rack and bake in the oven from 15 to 20 minutes until bacon is crispy on the edges. This is a great low-effort way to cook bacon and have all the fat drip off (with little clean up!). (Can be done up to 3 days ahead) 

  3. Garlic / Shallots - Prep as directed. Can be stored together. (Can be done up to 4 days ahead)

  4. Cucumber / Tomatoes / Avocado - Prep as directed. Store in separate containers. 

  5. Make vinaigrette - Whisk garlic and shallots with balsamic vinegar, Dijon mustard, maple syrup, and cooking oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)

The sauce was amazing! The calzones were really good but lots of work. Lots of clean up too!

Need a ton more seasoning. I would recommend Italian for the sauce and at least a little garlic for the calzone.

spinach cheese filling worked great! Tasted better than expected. It was hard for me to even the thickness of the crust, and dough was not elastic enough to fit a desired size. I used my own pizza dough recipe.
