I believe I remember bits of chopped mushrooms, dark in color in the mix. The whole thing was rolled and sliced. The slices were baked (keep thinking cinnamon roll in style).
As this was served the lady in the cafeteria would pour a large spoonful of cheesesauce over the baked roll. The cheesesauce reminded me of a thin but more flavorful version of the sauce from Kraft Macaroni and Cheese.
We were always served greenbeans and strawberry shortcake with the roll.(completely unimportant to this, I know
Anyway, I have a hankering for some nostalgic comfort food. Any ideas?
Could this be it? It's not identical but seems very similar. The only real difference is the cheese sauce. The recipe ingredients listed are mixed up with the following recipe but shouldn't be too hard to separate. I doubt that anything would contain both biscuit dough and tortillas. I can't imagine using pickle relish in either, however.
Since this was made in a small town school why not try phoning around. There are often people alive who remember things of fifty years ago or more.
This could be a pleasant dish. I'm planning to give it a try but with well-drained tuna packed in oil. Only cats think tuna in water tastes better; dogs certainly don't. Enjoy it with your green beans and strawberry short cake and take a trip back to yeasteryear.
