Mini Pizza Cups
Jeff is a huge fan of Totino’s Pizza Rolls.
The first time he cooked dinner for me, Totino’s Pizza Rolls made up the main course. Side dishes on that very romantic evening included Pillsbury biscuits and corn. Hmmmmm.
. . . and he’s allllll mine, ladies!
I saw a similar recipe for these Mini Pizza Cups on The Recipe Rebel and knew I had to give them a try to see if they passed the “Jeff Test.”
He loved them, but mentioned the crunchy corners meant he couldn’t pop them in his mouth as quickly as he could pop Totino’s pizza rolls.
It’s all good — I think slowing down and savoring these Mini Pizza Cups is a good thing.
I bet these would also be good filled with roast beef and a horseradish sauce, or maybe tuna and cheddar cheese or even diced green chilies and jack cheese.
The combinations are endless!
I’m making a note to revisit these in 2015 and come up with more combos!
