Bacon and Cheese Breakfast Calzones

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, right? And since Nick comes from a long line of hearty breakfast eaters I feel a slight sense of obligation to make breakfast every weekend. However, today he got more of a brunch. I found this cool recipe for Breakfast Calzones and decided to get it a try. I tweaked the recipe to my own liking - it called for pepperoni and mozzarella and instead I used cooked bacon and marble cheese. Simple little changes to normal recipes make them your own... don't be afraid to try!
