Another kid-friendly recipe that my sister, Suzanne, served for lunch to the kids (toddler through seven) she babysits this summer. They were easy to make, the kids helped, and they loved them. I think one of the great things about simple recipes like this is that it gets kids in the kitchen, on their level, doing something they can gain confidence with and then when they love the taste, it gets them even more excited about cooking and trying more complicated things. It's about building a foundation of skill and confidence.
For parents, it's quick, easy, and tasty, so that's ALWAYS a winning combination!
Pepperoni and Provolone Crescent Rollups
- 1 can (8) Crescernt rolls
- 2 oz Pepperoni, divided by 8
- 4 slices Provolone cheese, cut in half
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
1) Lay out each of the 8 crescent triangles. On the top (wide part opposite the point) lay out 1/8th of the pepperoni slices overlapped along the crescent roll.
2) Lay 1/2 slice of cheese on top.
3) Roll up starting from the wide end and place rolled crescent on greased baking sheet with point down on the sheet pan.
4) Bake for 15-20 mionutes or until puffy and nicely browned.
I'm not going to attempt to say these are healthy but as a treat now and then, served with carrot, celery sticks, and other vegetables....I'll let you be the judge.
