Cheeseburger Calzones

When I first read this recipe I only did it because I had the ingredients on hand and wanted to try something new, I thought for sure this would be a flop, but it is surprisingly good. My kids really liked it a lot, which is why I keep the recipe.

½ lbs. ground beef
3 Tbsp. ketchup
1 tsp. yellow mustard
1 tsp. instant mined onion
2 c. bisquick mix
½ c. boiling water
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese
12 dill pickle slices
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp. sesame seeds

1. Preheat oven to 375°. In a 10” skillet, cook beef over medium high heat until brown; drain. Stir in ketchup, mustard and onion.
2. Stir bisquick mix and boiling water with fork until dough forms. Divide dough into fourths. Place dough pieces on surface dusted with bisquick mix; roll in bisquick mix to coat. Press each piece into 6” rounds, ¼ inch thick.
3. Spoon ¼ c. beef mixture onto one side of each dough round to within ½ in of edges. Top beef on each found with ¼ c. cheese and 3 pickle slices. Fold dough in half, covering filling. Press edges with tines of fork to seal. Place calzones on ungreased cookie sheet. Brush with egg; sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown.

Yield: 4 servings
