Ridiculously Practical Dinners: Costco Calzones

Share it Please
How they appear in the box. You bake them in the tin you purchase them in.

Sometimes when you come home from work you are just.not.in.the.mood. Making dinner? That's for weekends. Or people who don't work. Ok, I like making dinner, sometimes I even love making dinner. But every night? That's just not always going to happen.

I've found lots of blogs that will show you how to make a simple dinner, but there's just nothing like sitting back, relaxing, and letting the oven do all the work. My 'Ridiculously Practical Meals' series will be about reviewing meals you can pick up from the store, pop in the freezer or fridge, and pull out on the night you just don't want to cook. Welcome to the wonderful world of the lazy cooker.

Today's Meal: Costco Calzones

These babies looked delicious at the store and were delicious in my mouth. The best part? Preheat the oven, take the lid off, slide them in and leave them alone for 15 to 20 minutes. The only part you really have to take care of yourself is chewing. I don't know how to get you around that one.

Breaking it down.

This cost $6.99. Since there were two calzones that was ~ $3.50 a person. I had snacked a little late in the day, so I only ended up eating half my calzone at dinner last night and saved the other half for lunch today. I at it cold. It was still delicious. That also meant my portion of dinner last night only cost $1.75 and my lunch today cost $1.75. Doesn't get much better than that!
The nutrition facts.

Now you can always add healthy sides to this dish if you feel a little too lazy just eating a calzone. But really, what else do you need? My fiance and I ate this last night. Along with a glass of wine.

My personal rating: 4 out of 5 stars. I took a star off for lack of healthiness.

Have you tried these calzones before and if so what did you think? If you haven't, will you try them now?
