Christmas Calzone - Pinch of Nom Slimming Recipes

For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff to know in the blurb!

Turkey, brie and cranberry sauce are all often leftover after Christmas, but our Christmas Calzone transforms them into something really delicious that you’d never guess had been made from leftovers.

Looking for ideas for delicious Christmas dishes? Head over to our Christmas recipes collection to see all of our Christmas recipes in one handy place.

If you don’t like turkey or haven’t got any cooked turkey to hand, then you could also make this Christmas Calzone using chicken, bacon or ham – just make sure that whichever meat you choose is cooked before you add it to your Calzone!

We think that our Christmas Calzone is perfect when served for lunch or alongside a fresh, mixed salad for dinner, and it’s also suitable for freezing so it’s batch cooking friendly too.

Why not try enjoying it with some of our Christmassy Chutney? The combination of flavours works really well!
