Hey Guys, so another recipe today, although technically I’m counting this as a toddler post because I mostly made it for V. Ok, you got me, not gonna lie I did make this for dinner for just me and Mark too though. But it is a toddler recipe. The best part is that it is simple enough that the older toddlers (I’ll say 2+) may even be able to help cook it! So here it is: Crescent Pepperoni Roll Ups . Looks like this is not the original recipe, but it has been re-pinned on Pinterest many times.
So, here are our ingredients. My nieces A (2 years) and L (9 months) are helping along with V today.
Refidgerated Crescent Rolls
So we spread the crescent rolls out in triangles on a pizza pan – I used non-stick grease when I used a cookie tray but we didn’t on this pizza pan. Both times turned out fine. Next, we added just a smear of pizza sauce to the top.
Now add pepperoni – I could fit about 5-6 per “slice”
Ok, now add 1/2 of a “stick” of string cheese at the wide end and roll them up around the string cheese, they don’t have to be pretty. I had no problems with them coming apart in the oven and I wasn’t too meticulous about rolling them either.
Bake in the oven at 375 for 12 – 15 minutes, then let cool and you’re done!
We sprinkled a little garlic salt on top (’cause we’re fancy like that), but I think it actually made it a little too salty. Unfortunately, neither girl liked their pizza. They aren’t usually big pizza fans to begin with, but this recipe looked too fun and easy to not give it a shot. We were hopeful that helping with cooking would encourage them to try it, but no. However, both moms thought the pizza roll ups were delicious. I have also sent them cold in V’s lunch for daycare and for dinner one night and she seems to like them a little bit more when they are cold. Plus then she dips it in ranch dressing (that girl will eat anything if ranch dressing is involved).
On a totally different note, Grandma got the girls dress-up dresses from costco and this was too cute not to share. My iPhone camera was being ridiculous THE WHOLE TIME! So I apologize for the blurriness.
The cutest fairy ever! On that note, good night all. I have more adorable toddler ideas – with pics! Coming soon. Also some notes on a fun new hobby.
