This past week I managed to tackle two new recipes that I discovered on Pinterest (where else?!).  The first one was Cheese Pinwheel Rolls. I made them for us to eat during the Nebraska football game on Saturday.  They were super easy to make and quite yummy.  Here is the recipe:

Cheese Pinwheel Rolls
makes about a dozen rolls


1 ball pizza dough (I used the Pillsbury pizza dough found in the refrigerator section)

2 Tbls. butter

1 – 1 1/2 cups shredded cheese (I used mozzarella, but you could use anything that melts well)

Parmesan cheese, grated

kosher salt

freshly cracked black pepper

garlic powder

Lay our your dough on a floured counter. If you use a dough ball, roll it out into a rectangle.

Melt butter in microwave and spread with fingers all over dough surface.

Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Sprinkle dough with a thin, even layer of shredded cheese.

Sprinkle with a little kosher salt, fresh cracked pepper and garlic powder. You can also add other ingredients such as, herbs, olives, etc.

Roll the dough length wise into a long tube shape.

Cut it into about 12, 1 inch slices.

Place the rolls, face side up into an 8 x 8, lightly greased baking pan and sprinkle with more Parmesan cheese.

Set baking dish aside covered for about 30 minutes allowing the dough to rise slightly (Mine didn't really rise, so I'm not sure if this step is necessary).

Place in 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes or until tops turn golden brown.

They will bake together, so lift them out with a spatula and place on serving platter.

Pull apart to eat.

We ate ours with marinara sauce and they were so cheesy and yummy!

The next recipe we tried is known as "World's Greatest Sandwich" thanks to the movie Spanglish. I remember watching that movie and thinking how awesome that sandwich looked, but forgot all about it until I found the recipe on Pinterest. Actually, my friend Melissa pinned it first and I copied it from her!  Here is the recipe:

World's Greatest Sandwich

from Thomas Keller
makes 1 sandwich

3-4 slices of bacon

2 slices of Monterrey Jack cheese (We used Gouda because that's what we had on hand)

2 slices of toasted rustic country loaf (We used plain white bread)

1 tbsp of mayo

4 tomato slices

2 leaves of butter lettuce (We used Romaine since that's what we had)

1 teaspoon butter

1 egg


1. Cook the bacon until crisp, drain on paper towels

2. Place slices of cheese on one side of toasted bread. Place in toaster oven or under broiler to melt.

3. Spread mayo on other slice of bread top with bacon, sliced tomato, and lettuce

4. On non-stick skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Fry egg, turning over briefly when the bottom is set (keep yolk runny)

5. Slide finished egg on top of lettuce, top with other slice of bread (cheese-side down genius)

6. Place sandwich on plate and slice in half, letting yolk run down sandwich

I love a BLT and this sandwich just kicked the BLT up a notch.  It was delicious!  I think it will become a regular dinner around here!
