Pesto Roll Variation
Since not everyone wants a sweet snack, we decided to work on a savory roll as well. My husband Dave set aside some lean bread dough to experiment. We had some tomato pesto and some spinach artichoke filling left over from some appetizers we'd made.
These are not only delicious as a snack, they also go well with a meal. Last night I made a chicken soup with roasted butternut squash and served the rolls with it.
Several months ago we made pesto twists and also pesto-stuffed rolls. However the stuffed rolls kept blowing open so we had about as many rejects as acceptable rolls. The twists were really good, but a little crunchier than these. So far we like these the best, but we'll see what our customers think.
