Mac 'n cheese calzones are what's for dinner

When we saw Mellow Mushroom's Chicken Cordon Bleu Calzone earlier this year, we knew 2014 had great things in store for the calzone. And now we have proof positive in the form of this mac 'n cheese calzone, featuring all the mozzarella, Provel, and pancetta action you can handle.

The interestingly-named "Cock a Doodle Noodle" special was spotted by Shabby Anchor, a vigilant fan of 'zone shop Sauce on the Side. For the month of September, they'll be slinging this cheesy beauty at their two Missouri locations. It's a pizza dough pocket stuffed with mac 'n cheese, pancetta, green onions, chicken, mozzarella, and Provel cheese -- with a cup of Buffalo butter sauce on the side, because these guys live up to their name. We may only be two days in, but between this and Slater's special fried ravioli burger, we never want September to end.
