Skinny Pizza Rolls

(originally made 6/2011)

Another FG find-Dashing Dish.    She features healthy versions of recipes and works with another website to provide WW points info   :)      Was craving pizza yesterday so Jake and I put these together last night.    It made for a fun project as well as a great meal!      I used my smallest cookie scoop for the filling.    I omitted the pepperoni because I forgot to buy it and the black pepper and sweetener because the Penzey's mix was strong enough on it's own.  
Next time I make these I'm going to freeze some on baking sheets after assembling and then pop them into ziploc bags.    Will try baking them from frozen and see how they turn out!    You can also make them "unskinny" by frying them, but I was very happy with the texture of the baked one.

 Skinny Pizza Rolls

  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
--------  ------------  --------------------------------
     1/2           cup  Shredded Mozzarella Cheese -- used part skim
     1/2           cup  Pizza Sauce (or Tomato Sauce)
  20                    Turkey Pepperoni’s -- omitted
  24                    Wonton Wrappers
     1/8           cup  Parmesan Cheese
  1                tsp  Basil/Oregano mix OR Italian Seasoning -- used Penzey's Italian Herb Mix
     1/2           tsp  Garlic Powder
  1              pinch  sweetener -- (sugar/stevia/splenda) omitted
  1              pinch  black pepper -- omitted
                        *Optional: 1/3 cup Chicken Breast -- Diced OR 1/3 cup Light Italian Sausage

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Prepare a large baking sheet with parchment paper, or foil coated with non-stick cooking spray. Gather ingredients.

Pour pizza sauce, (or tomato paste), in a medium bowl…  Followed by the mozzarella cheese.  Slice the pepperoni into quarters, and add them to the sauce/cheese mixture.  Stir until combined.  Next, add the seasonings.  Stir again until everything is well combined.

To begin filling wonton wrappers, I find it easiest to create an ‘assembly line’. I did this by stacking my wonton wrappers, and having my filling, and a small bowl of water near by to ’seal’ the wrappers shut.

Then, begin filling by placing about a tablespoon of filling in the center of each wrapper. You could use a little more or less, just try not to over-fill them, or the filling will ooze out the sides when you are baking them.

To seal them shut, place your finger in the water… Trace two of the corners with the water… And fold the wrapper in half to meet the two dry corners with the two wet corners.  Press to seal the two sides together.

When wonton wrappers are filled, give them a light spray with non-stick cooking spray… And sprinkle parmesan cheese over the top of each one.  Lay pizza rolls out on prepared baking sheet.

Bake in preheated oven (450 degrees) for 10-15 minutes, or until the tops are lightly golden brown.

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites

I'm a huge fan of the Dunkin Donuts Power Breakfast sandwich, so when I started seeing ads for the new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites I stopped in and gave them a try.  They were delicious, but of course, I knew I could make them at home.  I started with the whites of six eggs. You can use pasturized whites if you don't want to do the whole separating, finding a use for the yolks thing.  I beat them up with some salt and pepper. Next up, the tomato and spinach.  I used grape tomatoes, seeded them and then chopped them into 1/4" pieces. I like baby spinach, and I took about 10 leaves and chopped those up into 1/4" pieces as well. I added that to the egg mixture.  When you pour it into the pans, be sure that it all gets evenly distributed.   They bake up pretty quickly, around 9 minutes or so.  Dunkin gives you two egg bites, the mini donut serving size is three. I pop them in ziplocs in the fridge and just pull a bag and reheat them in the microwave for a quick

Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon and Cheddar Omelet Bites

Since I already came up with a version of Dunkin Donuts new Egg White & Veggie Omelet Bites for myself, I decided to make the other variety that they are offering, Bacon & Cheddar, for my husband. Super simple.  Beat up some eggs with salt and pepper.  Add in some shredded cheddar and a slice of bacon cut into 1/4" pieces (I used kitchen shears).  Bake them for about 9 minutes in sprayed mini donut pans. They baked up light and fluffy.  The bacon stayed crisp and there's just the perfect amount of cheese.   I split them up into portions in zip top bags and that way we can just grab a bag and warm them up. My husband laughed when I told him 3 is the serving size.  I'll definitely be doubling the recipe next time! ************************* Copycat Dunkin Donuts Bacon & Cheddar Omelette Bites Print With Image Without Image Author: Jolene's Recipe Journal Ingredients 4 large eggs 1/4 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon pepper 3T shredded cheddar cheese 1 slice cooked ba

Double Layer Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Back in the day I used to bake from home for extra money.  This was one of the most popular items.  Cake mix sizes have changed and I've gone from using a 9" cake pans to 8" ones.  You can also use this cake mix upsizer to make up the difference between the old and new cake mix sizes.  If the layers are too thin, you'll never be able to flip and stack them without a mess. Be sure to keep track of which pan has the pineapple rings and cherries in it and which doesn't so that you can easily turn them out onto the plate in the right order.
