“Fragune has always been an Easter-time staple back home, and Possum's momma shared her recipe! Fragune is basically a cold calzone - in fact, you can follow the steps outlined below, only instead of "serving cold", just "serve hot" with a topping of tomato sauce, and boom, you've got yourself a calzone. We normally ate these around breakfast time, but they never really lasted all that long - we couldn't help but sneak some between meals, too. For some variation, try substituting different salamis instead of pepperoni, or adding a portion of mozzarella cheese to the recipe.”
