Kids really like this. It is one of my quick week day meals. I put about a tablespoon of butter over the roll before cooking to keep it from getting dry.

This is delicious! The only change I made was I used Italian bread crumbs because that was all I had.

I think this recipe is a little dry and needs more flavor, but my husband is in love with it. I've made it again and again and tweak it each time, adding spices, etc.
