I wanted to think outside the box, so I came up with a BBQ Chicken Calzone with my Havarti cheese.

Yes, Havarti. Havarti is the bomb, y’all!
BBQ Chicken CalzoneSo easy, and definitely versatile.

At first I thought about making at pizza, but, honestly, I really like the idea of calzones because they can be individualized and customized to your guests’ palates. You can add anything like olives, jalapenos, pickles (yes!), different cheeses, etc.

Experimenting is fun!
