Hints and Tips:
This is a great menu option because it has all the elements you want from a course.
First and foremost everyone loves it! You can make it before hand, and put it in the oven when it's needed and it's ready quickly - 12 minutes - and simple to serve cracking!
Drawback: Rolling them is intensely boring! Anyone who's done them for rather tries to avoid doing it again!! That shouldn't matter if you're doing it for 8!!
