When a teen bakes – Pepperoni Cheddar Wraps

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…)

    • Not yet, but a decent blender to do it all is on the list! I down fruit smoothies every AM for breakfast and am attempting to get him to adopt that habit. :) So far he hasn’t loved veggie juice at all so starting with fruit… I’ve heard of all the things you can make with the blenders too, pretty cool!

  1. They look amazing! Great Job! Great Life skill to encourage your son to embrace. So many younger kids these days can’t cook.
