Bratwurst Calzone - Yum or Yuck?

Did some beer brats (Johnsonville) Saturday night. Love those things - 10 minutes boiling in beer ('n onions) and then finish them on the Egg. That commercial they run on TV shows the guy putting them in beer after he grills them - I've always boiled first. Anyway, I love those things - a little mustard and you are in business.[p]For maybe the first time ever I had a couple left over on Sunday, which was pizza night. What started out as a pizza ended up as a calzone (happens sometimes, you know - especially when it's kind of hot and sticky outside - or if you try to "rush" the dough like I did). I went with the traditional sauce, mozzarella and some parmesan cheese and decided to top with some thinly sliced bratwurst, a heap of vidalia onions that I carmelized with some brown sugar and just a drop or 2 of balsamic vinegar, and some fresh thyme. I was skeptical at first - I love italian sausage on pizza and love brats on their own but just felt like I might be pushing too much of a good thing by mixing them together. The verdict? DEE-LISH! Maybe I just stumbled across the next reeces peanut butter cup, what do you think.
