Pampered Chef- Ham and Cheese Calzones

Do you have leftover ham from Thanksgiving?  I definitely had a good amount.  But there was a problem...I was out of sides! No more mashed potatoes, no more sweet potatoes, no more stuffing.  Yes, I could easily whip up some of these things, but it wouldn't be the same.  So I set out on a search for a recipe to use my leftover ham in.  By now you should know how obsessed I am with crescent roll dinners.  Which is exactly why I chose this recipe. Loved how these guys turned out.  D.E.L.I.C.I.O.U.S.   

Ham & Cheese Calzone

2  tbsp (30 mL) mayonnaise
2  tsp (10 mL) Dijon mustard
1  cup (250 mL) fresh broccoli florets (about 2 oz/60 g)
1  8-oz (250-g) slice smoked deli ham (about ½ in./1 cm thick)
1/2  small onion
8  oz (250 g) Swiss cheese, grated, divided
1  tbsp (15 mL) vegetable oil, divided
2  pkg (13.8 oz/283 g) refrigerated pizza crust
1  oz (30 g) Parmesan cheese, grated
  1. Preheat oven to 450°F (230°C). Combine mayonnaise and mustard in Classic Batter Bowl; mix well with Small Mix ‘N Scraper®. With Utility Knife, cut broccoli into small florets; dice ham. Using Food Chopper, coarsely chop onion. Grate Swiss cheese withUltimate Mandoline fitted with grating blade. Combine broccoli, ham, onion and half of the Swiss cheese in batter bowl; mix well.
  2. Lightly brush Large Bar Pan with 1 tsp (5 mL) of the oil using Chef's Silicone Basting Brush. Unroll one package of dough onto bottom of bar pan, gently stretching and pressing dough to cover bottom. Sprinkle with remaining Swiss cheese to within 1 in. (2.5 cm) of edges; spoon ham mixture over cheese. Unroll remaining dough directly over filling, matching edges of dough and shaping to fit as dough is unrolled. Trim 1/2 in. (1 cm) off sides of dough with Utility Knife. Press edges to seal with Mini-Tart Shaper. Brush remaining oil over dough. Using Utility Knife, make 12 slits, in three rows of four each, into top crust.
  3. Bake 14-16 minutes or until golden brown. Meanwhile, grate Parmesan cheese usingMicroplane® Adjustable Grater; sprinkle over calzone. Return calzone to oven; bake 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is deep golden brown. Slice with Pizza Cutter; serve with Mini-Serving Spatula.
Yield: 4 servings
