I made these using the Grands Biscuits from a can, and they turned out great! Was actually easier because I didn't have to wait for the biscuits to thaw out. We replaced the pork with turkey, because the deli at our grocery store didn't have pork. My husband loved them, though, and he ate some as leftovers the next day for lunch :) The recipe was easy to follow and easy to prepare. Will definitely be doing these again!

We used biscuits from a can and for the pork (which is traditional in a Cuban) we used the thin sliced ham that comes in a baggie (Buddig meats). Each bag is 2 oz. These were great!

I used biscuits from a can, deli ham, bread & butter pickles, and the mustard-mayo mix. I was worried about being so lazy with it, but they turned out great! My boyfriend doesn't usually eat pickles, but he said they really enhanced the flavor. He was sad that I didn't make more of them!

I'm going to have to do it without the pork....I went to 3 deli's including one huge meats & more store, and no one carries "sliced precooked deli pork"!?!?!?

Used the frozen biscuits, thawed as directed but found the dough very difficult to handle. Got it right when I very lightly dusted with flour and used a rolling pin. Calzones were delicious. Will try again using crescent rolls.

I didnt read the recipe careful so instead of the ready made frozen buscuits, I used the ones in the can and instead of spreading them into 6 inch squares I simply use one biscuit at the base, spread the mustard mixture then added Pancetta and Honey Turkey (instead of Pork and Ham) along with the cheese and pickles. It was great!! Swap crushed garlic for minced onions and you'll be in for a real treat!

This is for kellyeck6831. Why not use ground beef seasoned with Cuban spices cooked and well drained. As to the spices, garlic, cumin, oregano, and Bay leaves will get you by. And look up a recipe for Sofrito, also used in Cuban cooking. It's primarilly onion, green pepper, garlic, oregano, and ground pepper quick fried in olive oil. I'm going to give that a try myself, so thanks for the idea.

Used ham and roast beef. Good calzone. I would like to try it again with cresent rolls as another reviewer has.

how to make it

I made this for myself and my husband... sort of. He doesn't like mayo and neither of us like pickles, so I kept the mayo off his and the pickles off altogether. Also, due to my laziness, I didn't go to the store to buy biscuits because we already had crescents--I can't possibly imagine how the biscuits would be better. I thoroughly enjoyed the sandwiches (we each ate two because they were small with the crescents), and so did my husband.
