Thank you Jennie-O for sponsoring and inspiring this post!These Breakfast Calzones are such a fun and easy delicious breakfast! They are perfect for feeding a whole mess of kids!

I have a serious question for you guys.

At what point do you call it quits on a  book?

So, I have this thing where I find it so difficult to give up on a book, especially if it is by an author that I’ve previously loved. I keep wanting to hold out hope that a book is going to get better . . . and I just end up not reading it, or really anything.

So at what point do you call it quits?

I’ve been “reading” this book for the last like four months. I mean, a good book typically takes me less than a week. I will sacrifice sleep, my favorite t.v. shows, {cough} work, to read a good book. But AGH I just can’t finish this book. (I refuse to give you the title because I really like the author.)

I think it’s because I hate all the characters. Like there is literally no one that I’m cheering for. They are all kind of miserable souls.

Crap.

What if that is the point of the book and I’m just not smart enough to get that?

But I just want to be done with it already! I want to read something where I care about the characters and want them to not fall off a cliff. You know?

Thoughts? Input?

 . . . . Book suggestions?

So, what is not questionable or in need of a replacement?

This breakfast! These Breakfast Calzones are made with Jennie-O’s Lean Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links. They are absolutely delicious on their own, and they add a ton of flavor to these breakfast calzones!

These calzones would be perfect for a weekday breakfast, because you just cook the sausages in about 10 minutes, scramble some eggs, and then hand your kiddos calzones as they run out the door. They’d also make a great afternoon snack!

    Lisa, give up on the book. You’ve given it more than a fair shot. Why take precious reading time and use it on a book you’re not into? Approach reading like dating. No time wasting!
    BTW, I finished Gone Girl recently. If you haven’t read it, I recommend. It was really good.
    These look like a fantastically decadent breakfast. I’m on board!

    • Lisa Longley says

      Thanks Mir!

  2. Amy @Very Culinary says

    Oh gosh, for me…if the book doesn’t grab me within the first chapter, I’m out! How bad is that? What’s not bad is these calzones. I made something similar just last week, but I like these better! LOVE Jennie-O.

    • Lisa Longley says

      Man. I SHOULD ditch it. But now I want to know what happens! Maybe I should just google it, HAHAHAHA!

      • Jude Susia says

        Even a very, very favorite author can write a boring or unpleasant book. When I find myself reading with distaste, I skip to the final chapter. That usually knits up all the plot and sub-plot. Once you know how it ends, you’ve done well by yourself. And your favorite author will never know.

        • Lisa Longley says

          Great advice Jude :)

  3. heather @french press says

    lisa, these are SO fun! Charlie has been So hungry lately because of football practice, but i bet a few of these would keep him full til lunch :) good thing I have a pack of jennie-o in the freezer

  4. Dorothy @ Crazy for Crust says

    I hate that. I have a firm no-quit rule on books…but I’ve broken it a couple times. At this point…it’s time to break it off. It’s her, not you. :)

  5. Tracey says

    That’s exactly how I felt about a certain book that was made into a really big movie where the wife was kidnapped and the husband was accused. Everyone said the book was amazing. I just couldn’t get through it. I gave up about 1/2 way through. I just couldn’t do it anymore. These calzonez on the other hand, look great and I can’t wait to make them!

    • Lisa Longley says

      So funny that you mention that particular book, Tracey . . . . :)

  6. Peggy Brennan says

    I would love to make these and freeze and microwave for my working men. Has anyone tried this?

  7. Emilie says

    How many calzones does this make? I’m looking to feed 6-7 people and adding apple slices as a side. Do I need to double this recipe?

    • Lisa Longley says

      You could get about a calzone a person with this recipe. And it just depends on how your guests eat. 7 teenage boys? Double it. 7 teenage girls, probably not.

  8. June says

    If you’re making a bunch of these (like 20 or so), could you make ahead of time and just pop into the oven the morning of? Or would that ruin the eggs, filling, etc.?

    • Lisa Longley says

      So, to be honest, I wouldn’t. I love the Pillsbury rolls for their convenience, but really, they are so much better fresh out of the package. I would say make the eggs and bacon ahead of time and then assemble and bake int he morning. The assembling really doesn’t take long.

  9. dawn says

    These look great! Try the Outlander series, you will definitely LOVE the characters!

    • Lisa Longley says

      Oooo, thanks Dawn!

      • Debbie says

        I’m with Dawn.. if you haven’t read the Outlander series, you should. You will become totally invested in the characters. I also enjoy the In Death series by JD Robb.

        • Lisa Longley says

          Thanks Debbie!

        • Gafromga says

          J D Robb is my favorite series. But read them in order. When I read a book I can’t get into I finally jump to the end then discard. Don’t waste time when there are plenty more authors to read. These are great and quick.

        • Michele says

          Love JD Robb series. I have them all

  10. Gina DeLaune says

    This looks scrumptious! As for Books, if you like romance with a bit of magic, Janet Chapman! She has a whole series out and you don’t have to wait!
