Campfire Calzones

A hike in the woods warrants a great-tasting sandwich with outdoor flavor!


  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
  • 8 slices white sandwich bread
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce
  • 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese (8 ounces)
  • 12 thin slices salami or pepperoni (2 ounces)
  • Additional pizza sauce, if desired


  1. Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Spread butter on 1 side of 2 slices of bread. Place 1 slice, butter side out, on sandwich press. Spoon 2 tablespoons of the pizza sauce onto center of bread. Sprinkle with 1/2 cup of the cheese; top with 3 slices of the salami. Top with other bread slice, butter side out. Close press; trim excess bread if necessary.
  2. Grill over campfire or on grill 4 to 6 inches from medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, turning once, until bread is golden brown and cheese is melted.
  3. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
  4. Serve warm with additional pizza sauce.
