Tuna Surprise Rolls

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Gramma Peg

Our school served these to the elementary children and my son loved it so much he traded most of his other lunch items to the kids who didn't like the rolls and ended up eating 7. He then told the cook she was a " Great Cooker" Ah, kids are great.
