Crushed meatballs, cooked sausage or any kind of leftover beef chopped, hotdog pieces or even any cold cut meat chopped

Cheeses Frozen cubes work best: mozzarella, swiss, pepper jack, sharp cheddar ( I cut small cubes and freeze them and add to the dough frozen
Taco filling: refried beans, loose cooked meat, sharp cheddar cheese
Chopped chicken or shredded with buffalo sauce


Take around 3 tablespoons of dough and flatten on a floured board. Place around 1 tablespoon of any of the above meats, cheeses or vegetables in the middle. Roll them up, seam side dough.

Heat oil on medium heat. Place the rolls into the hot oil seam side down. Cook until browned on both sides. Serve hot with dipping sauces. Marinara prefered for the Italian fillings. If you do a taco filling use picante sauce or salsa.

This is a simple appetizer and you can make with whatever your family likes. Enjoy!
