Most of you know that I have 3 children... 3 very different picky children. One will not eat any melted cheese (sometimes I wonder how this child can be mine). One doesn't really like meat. And one will try just about anything. That is just the beginning of their pickyness.
My Ls have decided they don't really care for sandwiches in their lunch box. Fine by me because I'm so lazy at making lunches for them in the mornings. I hate having to make sandwiches every morning so anything to make that process easier is fantastic. This is such an easy recipe that can be made many ways with different leftovers in your fridge. I call them Sneaky Sandwiches because they have fooled my kids... I mean really, aren't they sandwiches in disguise?
You can actually make these as easy or as complicated as you like. I have a friend that uses canned biscuts and rolls them out. I like to use frozen dinner rolls. I buy the Kroger brand but Rhodes also make one too.
First thing you do is sit the frozen dinner rolls out on a parchment lined baking sheet about 2 inches apart until they thaw. Depending on the heat in my kitchen it usually takes about an hour to an hour and a half. When they are thawed roll the dough out and fill with a few tablespoons of filling then fold over and pinch the edges together. I usually like to use a fork to crimp the edges so the filling doesn't leak out.
Bake at 350 for 7 minutes or until golden brown.
Let cool, then package 2 per ziploc freezer bag and freeze. I just put the frozen ones in my kiddos lunch box and by lunch time they are thawed.
WARNING: If you bake these while your kids are home you will not have very many to put in the freezer! My kids eat them all up if I'm not watching. :)
Here are a few ideas for fillings. Please feel free to comment ideas that you have. I would love some new ones
• Ham and Cheese (I've used swiss and cheddar. Both are delicious)
• Ham, Broccoli and Cheese
• Turkey and Cheese (Great for Thanksgiving leftovers)
• BBQ Pulled Pork
• Jerk Chicken or Pork
• Taco Meat
Seriously you can use just about anything.
