My 14 year old son doesn’t really like bringing typical lunches to school. I think the hot cafeteria is a real threat compared to home created lunches. So glad the choice is there, however some days it just makes sense to pack a lunch to save a few dollars.
I’m always encouraging him to shop for the things he likes so he’ll be more likely to want to eat them. We’ve been eyeing up pepperoni rolls lately in the deli but they can get pricey too. So I suggested he make his own.
And so he did! We picked up some Pillsbury wiener wraps, pepperoni, and cheddar cheese and got to work.
The outcome was super quick, and positively delicious!
The only bad news? They were eaten before the next day! Oops…
My boy’s actually been getting fairly creative in the kitchen, so you’ll be seeing a few more of his easy to whip up creations soon!
(which are equally awesome for non cooks like me…)
- Pillsbury wiener wraps
- pepperoni sticks
- grated cheddar cheese
- 1. Oil pan well or place foil on pan, then oil.
- 2. Open rolls, and line up on cookie sheet.
- 3. Place half a stick of pepperoni on each dough section.
- 4. Roll closed.
- 5. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese.
- 6. Bake for approximately 15 minutes at 375 degrees, or whatever rolls say on package.
- Wonderful for school lunches or to take on picnics. Very easy for kids to make, and they'll likely eat it because they made it themselves. Would also be fabulous teamed up with a sweet dipping sauce.
