Alright, technically, this isn’t a southern recipe in my mind. Then again, technically, if I am a southerner and I reside in the south and I make this – its southern food, right?
The main thing to remember is, these are cheap, my family loves them, they taste GREAT, and I WONT HAVE TO COOK ANY BIG MEALS THIS WEEKEND!!!
My mom used to make these when she and my dad went out of town. We were all in our late teens and they left three of us, ages fifteen through twenty, alone in the house for two to three days at a time. They didn’t fret much though. Mama would make a batch of pizza rolls and some ham and cheese croissants. She gave my brother pizza money for all of us and they went off on a little getaway, confident that their offspring were responsible and intelligent young adults who would behave while they were away.
Yeah, I’ll never do that. I know better.
Without further adieu, Pizza Rolls!
This is where normal people would have this skillet full of sauteed onions and bell peppers as well. Normal people would like to have sauteed onions and peppers in with this dish. Normal people would find that delicious in addition to smelling downright heavenly. However, I am convinced that out of my entire household (even my own children), I am the only one who was not dropped on their head as a child. No one in my household will eat these if I put onions and bell peppers in them. Normal = me. Abnormal = my family. If you are normal, feel free to add some sauteed onions and peppers. 😀
I am honestly not cooking this weekend! Except for some frozen waffles for breakfast and a tutorial I’m doing tomorrow or Sunday on sausage gravy…
I won’t be cooking thanks to pizza rolls!
Sample dialogue from this weekend :
Kid/Husband : “I’m hungry”
Smiling Woman: “Well, we have pizza rolls in the fridge..”
Kid/Husband: “Oh Cool!”
Smiling Woman goes back to her reading, embroidery, napping, crocheting, watching tv, etc without lifting a finger.
