These easy-to-make Pillsbury Pepperoni Rolls are positively delicious, and make a great snack or appetizer with a kick of spice!
My 14 year old son doesn’t really like bringing typical lunches to school. I think the hot cafeteria serves as real competition to homemade lunches if you know what I mean. I feel grateful the choice is available of course! There’s nothing like a fresh hot lunch from the school cafeteria!
However, it isn’t exactly economical to always buy lunch. 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.
So this one day we had been eyeing up ready-made pepperoni rolls at our local deli which really intrigued him. But they can get pricey too. So, I suggested he try and make his own!
Gathering up our favorite ingredients, this is what he came up with!
And not only these Pillsbury pepperoni rolls topped with cheddar cheese positively delicious, he’s thrilled to pack these in his lunch box anytime! They always get eaten.
This is such an easy recipe for kids to make, with just enough cheese, and the pepperoni elevates the experience with a touch of spice!
Here’s how to ramp up your own kiddo’s lunchbox… and if luck is on your side, perhaps they can make their own too!
Here’s how we made them:
When a teen bakes – Pillsbury Pepperoni Rolls
Ingredients we used:
- Pillsbury weiner wraps
- fresh pepperoni from our local deli
- medium cheddar cheese we grated ourselves
And did they ever come together fast!
And they baked up to perfection too.
The only bad news? They were eaten before the next day! Oops… so make more than you think you’ll need, because you’ll be wanting to indulge in these any time of day!
Not only would they be great for school boxed lunches, served as an appetizer would also be perfect.
