1. In a deep fat frying pan heat 3 to 4 inches of vegetable oil or cooking fat to 375°F.

3. Keep a piece of prosciutto on one half and a strip of cheese on top of it.

4. Sprinkle a little oregano and pepper, and dribble a few drops of olive oil over the cheese.

5. Fold the other half over the filling to make a half moon and pinch the edges to seal.

6. Deep fry 2 or 3 at a time, turning once in between for 4 to 5 minutes or until they are golden brown on both sides.

7. Take out and drain the calzone on paper towel.
