Big Bird Calzones

1 c Part skim ricotta cheese
1 pk (10oz) frozen spinach, thawed and squeezed dry
2 ea Firm tomatoes, seeded and didced
1 sm Can roasted red peppers, drained and thinly sliced (1/4 cup)
1/4 c Grated parmesan cheese, or to taste
2 tb Onion flakes
2 ts Italian seasoning
2 ts Chicken boullion
1 ts Garlic flakes
1/2 ts Black pepper
ds Nutmeg
3 c Diced cooked turkey or chicken breast meat
1 lb Frozen bread dough, thawed
Yolk of large egg

Drain ricotta in a sieve while you prepare the remaining ingredients. In a bowl, combine the spinach, cheeses, spices and turkey or chicken. Set aside for flavours to blend. Cut the bread dough into 4 equal pieces. Roll each piece into an 8 inch round. Place 1/4 of the meat mixture onto bread round (in center). Brush the edges light with water. Fold one side of each round over the filling to form a turnover. Press the edges with a fork to seal. Arrange on ungreased cookie sheet, brush beaten egg yolk over calzone and then bake at 425F for about 15 minutes or until puffed and golden in colour.
