Cheese Potato Calzone

Calzone, this popular Italian oven baked folded pizza which is well known all around the world, as this folded pizza are very easy to make. I have already baked couple of calzone with different stuffing. However my today's post goes for a different and dangerously delicious calzone which is simply stuffed with a herbed and spiced potato chunks. The stuffing calls for a super simple preparation. Yes cooked and mildly mashed potatoes when spiced with some chilly flakes,salt, olive oil and chopped parsley leaves is quite enough to prepare the filling. No sauteeing is needed. If you are searching for a super filling lunch or dinner to serve and feed easily your family dont forget to give a try to this fantastic calzone.

This pocket pizza can be prepared at anytime of the day and they were quite filling when served along with a bowl of warm soup or with some vegetable salads. Usually i prepare calzone with meats and veggies filling along with grated cheese, this time i skipped the meats and prepared simply with a simple potato filling and cheese. You can make mini calzones using the same stuffing for a party menu,why not for a snacks..You have so many choices to make filling and enjoy these delicious calzones without any guilt. These calzones are going to Bake-a-thon, a fabulous baking event am running for this whole month, thrice a week.
