My new addiction has been pinterest.  There has been a pin going around for pizza rolls and they looked so good so I took a look at a couple of recipes and made my own minature ones.

  • Two pilsbury pizza dough rolls
  • Pepperoni ( I used a half a pound from the deli)
  • 1 package (16 oz) of mozzarella cheese
  • 1 package (16 oz) of Parmesan cheese
  • Italian season
  • Garlic salt
  • Vegetable oil
  • butter
  1. Open the dough containers and spread them on large surface to make sure the dough is cut.
  2. Take about a square of dough at 4 inches long and make sure it is spread evenly.
  3. Cover the dough in oil, and then place 2 pieces of pepperoni on each square
  4. Cover the pepperoni with about a handful of Parmesan cheese and one handful of mozzarella cheese.
  5. Roll the square tightly and place on a cookie sheet coated with cooking spray.
  6. Repeat until all the dough is cone
  7. Heat oven to 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes
  8. Serve with marinara sauce.

Family Style Meatloaf

Meat loaf is such a popular food and there are so many different ways to make it.  I have to admit I am super picky when it comes to meatloaf.  This is my favorite recipe and the one I think tastes the best.

  •     1 pound ground beef
  •     1 envelope of Lipton Onion & mushroom soup mix
  •     1/2 cup of Italian style bread crumbs
  •     2 tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce
  •     1 egg whisked
  •     1.5 teaspoons of garlic powder
  •     1 teaspoon of fiery 5 pepper
  1.  Mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl, make sure mixed very well so you do not have clumps of ingredients.
  2. Grease your loaf pan with cooking spray.
  3. Once well mixed transfer to your loaf pan and make sure meat mixture is evenly spread.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes
