Having company for Thanksgiving weekend? Here is a quick easy blast from the past meal. Easy to make. Easy to serve. Easy clean up. Perfect.
When our kids come home, they like to play an early morning round of 18 holes of golf. This is a perfect for a bite when they come back before they go to the living room to snooze.
School mornings. Yep, that too. I don’t know about you but I run out of ideas and we just don’t like cereal all that much to have it more than once a week.
Easy Breakfast Lunch Roll Ups
I do not like to make lunch. Unfortunately my family likes to eat a mid day meal. On Saturdays we have our special breakfast but sometimes ,we need a quick breakfast, easy clean up on our way out the door breakfast.
Then there is lunch time. We all get a bit hungry and want to eat. I do not like to make lunch. So easy or soup made ahead of time is my solution besides nachos.
These quick simple roll ups are classic from the early days of refrigerated rolls. The earliest version I can recall is pig in a blanket. That was a fancy hot dog for lunch. Sometimes you would add a cheese slice down the middle of a slipt dog. For super fancy treat, it was wrapped in bacon. Yum.
The tough part of this recipe is to remember to buy the crescent rolls and fresh fruit. A plus…it can double as lunch. which I do not like to make.
How to serve this? Wrapped in a napkin to go is great. So is using a plate to dress it up. Get out a platter. Fill it up and put it on the coffee table with napkins of small plates. How easy is that to make, serve and clean up! Just what is needed for a holiday weekend.
