Pepperoni Rolls (Fresh or Frozen)



Our family loves pizza…is there a family that doesn’t? My family may also be guilty of liking Hot Pockets too! Well, our grocery budget really does not allow for the purchase of Hot Pockets because they are close to $1.55 per pocket. I bet most of you are shaking your head thinking that is a great deal! Well for some it is. However, for the price of 2 Hot Pockets I can easily make 4 Pepperoni Rolls! 

Pepperoni Rolls are our family’s favorite movie night treat! But I also make them and freeze them so that when we are in a lunch or snack pinch there is always something to have! 

(I consider this meal a family friendly meal even though it does take a little longer than 30 minutes to prep the rolls and the total cost is a little over $5.00.)
