Pizza Rolls

October 26, 2010

This is a VERY simple and versatile recipe. Great for lunches, after school snacks, or whatever.

Make one recipe of my pizza dough. Divide it in half. Roll out one half to about a 12×6″ size. Spread pizza sauce on it, then top with your favorite pizza toppings (nothing too chunky). Sprinkle with shredded cheese. Roll up as you would for cinnamon rolls. Repeat with second chunk of dough. Place, cut-side down, on a greased cookie sheet and bake at 435*F for 15-20 minutes.

My family is pretty unadventurous when it comes to pizza toppings, so I did one batch of pepperoni with mozzarella cheese, and one batch of ham with cheddar cheese.


Tuna Torpedoes

April 14, 2010

These can be prepared ahead of time and refrigerated for a few hours until you’re ready to heat them.

6-1/2oz. can tuna, drained

1 cup grated cheddar cheese

3 Tbsp relish (or chopped dill pickle)

1 green onion, thinly sliced (or 1-1/2 Tbsp finely diced onion)

1 Tbsp prepared mustard

1 Tbsp mayonnaise or plain yogurt

4 hot dog buns, split OR 4 tortillas

Combine tuna, cheese, relish, and green onion in small bowl. Add mustard and mayonnaise. Stir. Spread bottom halves of buns with tuna mixture. Cover with top halves. Alternatively, divide mixture between 4 tortillas and roll up as for burritos. Wrap each sandwich in foil. Bake at 350* for 15 minutes until heated through.

Serve with: Carrot and Celery Sticks, Apple Slices, and a treat for dessert (a cookie, for example)


Tuna Sandwiches

February 16, 2010

This recipes really stretches one can of tuna. I can use two cans (two times the recipe) for our family of 5 for one meal!

1 6oz. can water-packed tuna, drained

1 rib celery, diced

1/2 carrot, grated

1 slice onion, finely chopped

1/3 cup plain yogurt

1 Tbsp mayonnaise

1 Tbsp pickle relish

2 tsp lemon juice

1 tsp mustard

Blend together thoroughly with a fork to help break up the tuna. Spread onto bread or buns for sandwiches. Add sprouts or lettuce and top with second bread slice.

Serve with:

Raw veggies

Applesauce or apple slices
