"These are so easy and delicious! I plan on trying different veggies next time. Plan on needing a second batch because they'll be gone before you know it!"

"I just made these today with my daughters. This is a great kid-friendly recipe - my girls are 1.5 & 3 yrs old, they "helped" put the toppings on! I'm sure older kids could help more, or even do it themselves.

I think my muffin tin is smaller than what is shown in the picture, so I only baked mine for 12 mins and they came out perfect.
Both my girls liked these - they enjoyed their lunch, and now we have snacks for the next few days too! I will be making this again for sure."

"My store doesn't carry the dinner rolls in a tube, so I used frozen dinner rolls, cut in quarters. I was making these for picky kids, so they just had sauce and cheese and were fantastic! Easy and tasty."

"What a great looking recipe. I would definitely make these, but I think I'll make them in full-sized muffin cups, instead of as mini-muffins. You could put any toppings inside of these. I might even try this with refrigerated pizza dough. YUM!!! Pizza on the go!!!"

"I usually use the biscuits instead of the dinner rolls and yes, I have frozen them. They are great!"

"I don't see why they can't be frozen! I freeze a lot of things for quick convenience on those busy weeknights! I would probably freeze them in a ziploc bag so you can grab the number you need each time. I think it would be great for school-age kids... they can grab a few from the freezer and pop in microwave for 30-45 seconds for a super yummy after school snack! I would put the microwave directions on the bag with a permanent marker so they don't have to try and remember how long!"
