MAN CAVE Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza Roll

Man Cave. 

Man Cave, sometimes called Man Space or Man Sanctuary - is a place where guys can "do as they please" without fear of upsetting any female in regards to house rules or decor design.

Man Caves are a place to be away from women.  To indulge in childish hobbies. To hang out with male friends.

A place to retreat -  to watch sports, play Poker, or in my husband's case, to sing Karaoke and pretend he's the lead singer of Styx.

A Man Cave can present a guy with an "opportunity to disappear for hours without leaving the premises".

Wifely Instructions:
Make this recipe, open the Man Cave door ever so slightly, quickly stick your arm inside, and carefully hand your hungry Caveman and his friends this delicious Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza Roll.

He will thank you.

His Caveman friends will thank you.

And this will give you 2 additional hours of peace and quiet to take a bath, read a book, watch a girly movie, and to have the Wife Cave all to yourself.

1 lb. lean ground beef
5 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1/2 c. chopped onion, chopped in small pieces
8 ounces (1/2 lb.) Velveeta  Cheese, cut into cubes
1 roll (13.8 ounces) Refrigerated Pizza Crust

Must Have Side Items:

Claussen Refrigerated Kosher Dill Sandwich Pickles
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Fry bacon slices and crumble.  Set aside.

Fry hamburger and onion together.  Once hamburger is done, drain, return meat and onion to pan.  Add bacon and Velveeta cubes.  Heat until cheese is melted, stirring often. Once cheese is melted, and combined with meat mixture, take off burner and set aside.

Take large cookie sheet and spray it with Pam.

Unroll refrigerated pizza roll and gently press out to create a 15 x 8 inch rectangle. I use my 1/2 sheet, or Jelly Roll pan.  Gently push the dough out to the sides.

Top dough, evenly with meat mixture, trying to spread the meat out all the way to the edges.

Roll up the dough, starting from the long end and roll carefully with both hands, into a log.

Make sure seam side is down, and any holes that might have torn in the dough, be sure to pinch them together.

Bake in preheated 400 degree oven for 20 minutes until golden brown.  Be sure to start watching, after 18 minutes, as ovens really do vary.  That's what the oven window is for.

Cut into 6 slices.

Serve each slice on a plate, with a squirt of Ketchup and Mustard for dipping, as well as a Claussen pickle for the crunch factor. (Personally I love the cool crisp snap of the pickle after each bite).

Note:  These slices are to be eaten with your hands.  Do not hand out forks or knives. Forks are for women and children.
Cavemen use their hands, and they are to be picked up, and dunked into the mustard and ketchup before each bite. 

Purple nail polish in photo above does not belong to my Caveman. According to the rules and regulations of Cave Man handbook, article C, section 2; "Nail polish of any kind is strictly prohibited to anyone that enters the cave".


  1. Wow. Holy amazing man cave recipe!!!

  2. That looks so yummy! Can these be eaten in the wife cave?!

  3. This post is hilarious! Do you watch the new sitcom "Perfect Couples" on NBC? (It started off a little stiff, but now it's growing on me.) They had a great bit about "man caves" last week, and in the spirit of this post, it's definitely worth tracking down on Hulu if you missed it.

    Oh, and also, YUM!!

  4. O MY!!! So I wrote this recipe down & WILL try this! Looks SOOO darn good and easy! I think my hubby would approve.

  5. Omg!! I'm laying next to my sleeping caveman and giggling at your wonderful sense of humor! This recipe sounds so yummy also! But I'm afraid I may wake my caveman with the giggles so I'm going to leave the bed and see what you have for breakfast recipes!!! Hope he wont hear the giggles from the kitchen!

  6. Where's the "print" button....I don't want to get gooey all over my puter!!! But I have to make these!!! You need some print buttons!!
