“Cheese” Roll

submitted by Natalie Zea

This looks disgusting on paper. In fact, when my mother included it in the handwritten recipe book she gave me for high school graduation*, I was certain I would never ever make an attempt at cooking, I mean ASSEMBLING, it. Perhaps I was desperate or high or both, but one thing led to another and now it’s a perpetual crowd pleaser at parties. Please trust me on this. You won’t be able to stop eating it once you start. You’ve been warned.

*My mom was a huge stoner and never wore a bra and left me home alone starting at age 5. She was never the handwritten recipe type. I have no idea where this June Cleaver turn came from, but I was forever grateful for it.
