Poor Man's Pizza Rolls

When you're a new character starting out in a new game or on a new server you've got to find ways to cut your expenses down until your cash flow goes up. Don't be buying stuff from the AH or other people until you get your professions leveled and you can start selling things for gold. Sometimes you even forgo buying new spells for a couple levels as you save up for a mount or a new weapon.

Sometimes it's that way IRL too. You're in college and need to save what little money you have for tuition and to feed yourself some bare minimal stuff. Or you've got a family to feed, a mortgage to pay and a couple other bills here and there. It's nice to be able to save a bit on that large grocery bill. This meal is the perfect, cheaper (and tastier!) alternative to hot pockets! And just like hot pockets they are totally versatile in the kinds of fillings you use.


You can cut them up into smaller portions for parties or leave them whole, burrito-style and take it with you to work for lunch. They're not messy or greasy on the outside so you can handle them easily while gaming. And just like any pizza, they go great with a side salad if you wanna get some veggies in.



They are really quick and easy to make too so when you're in a rush, you can still have something delicious and hot to eat. No worries about pots and pans to clean here. Just a paper plate and a spoon to spread the sauce. Maybe a knife to cut it up if you're so inclined.


All around this meal gets a big thumbs up from my family and friends for tastiness, ease, speed and minimal clean-up hassles.
