When I was in college I lived off of cafeteria food, ramen noodles, PB&J sandwiches, Hot Pockets, and Tortino’s Pizza Rolls. Man, how I loved pizza rolls. Of course with this type of diet I gained beyond the “Freshman 15”, I gained the “Freshman 25”. Not to fear! I just lost 30! Only — to go. When you are a broke college student you eat what you can and what is cheap. Unfortunately, most of the food that is cheap is that gross over-processed food that is in the middle of the grocery store such as Hamburger Helper meals, Spam, hamburger patties, and, you guessed it, Tortino’s Pizza Rolls. I am not the healthiest person on the block, that is for sure, but I am more aware of what goes into my body now than in my college years.
As I have gotten older, I have learned to cook healthier and try to make meals from scratch of some of my childhood/ college favorites like Hamburger Helper and Sloppy Joes. Now, I am adding pizza rolls to that menu of dishes that I am learning to recreate. Sure it looks different, but they’re just as good and delicious. The best part of this recipe, like many of my recipes, is that it’s versatile.
