"Roll Day" in the cafeteria...Cin

Straws Kitchen(*o *)


Years ago I used to work in the cafeteria at one of the schools and allll the children love to eat in the cafeteria when it was "Roll Day".
Here is a cafeteria recipe that was used in probably tons of schools across the states.

I have not made them in a while and don't have any of my pix on my computer, so these are borrowed from the net.
Although, they do look just like this.
The one pic below, shows the inside of the baked roll.
