    Nif's Note:

    The flaky dough is filled with the meaty portabella mushrooms, delicious caramelized onions and 3 cheeses! This is a savory and easy meal to make and there is a shortcut for the crust that will save you a lot of time. You might also want to dip these into pizza sauce for an added zing.

      Separate biscuits and place them on a large baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Preheat oven to 400F but do NOT cook biscuits yet.
    2. 2
      In a frying pan, heat olive oil over medium heat and add onion. Saute for 10 minutes or until soft and golden. Add garlic and mushrooms and cook for another 5 to 10 minutes, until mushrooms are soft. Add basil, stir and remove from heat.
    3. 3
      In a large bowl, combine ricotta, mozzarella and/or cheddar, parmesan cheese, pepper, salt and the egg white. (Save egg yolk in a small bowl or cup and set aside.) Stir in mushroom mixture.
    4. 4
      Stretch out a biscuit with your hands until it.
    5. 5
      ’s about 4 inches wide. Place the biscuit in the palm of your hand and add about 2 tablespoons of the filling in the middle, avoiding the edges. Fold biscuit in half and pinch edges shut. Place on side on baking sheet and seal the edges with a fork. Repeat with the rest of the biscuits.
    6. 6
      Mix egg yolk with water and stir well. Brush each calzone with the egg yolk mixture. Bake for 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Serve with pizza sauce for dipping if you want to!

      I had to nearly double the amount of biscuits in order to use up the filling, as the filling would have spilled over and made a mess if I didn't. But once I did, I was happy. I love everything about it right down to the warmed up pizza sauce.

      There was way to much stuffing mixture for these little calzones. I would suggest cutting it in half. Cooking time was spot on. I used the cheddar cheese option. It did lack the punch we were looking for. It needed more salt and some additional spice such as oregano or Italian seasoning. I loved the hand method of stretching and assembly them. Good luck in the contest!
