MMM! Nothing beats warm pepperoni rolls right out of the oven to munch on during a football game. We used to be able to find these in any bakery on Sunday afternoons in Pa. but not here. Thankfully they are easy to make at home using only 3 ingredients.
2 tubes of refrigerated French Bread
1 package of sliced pepperoni or turkey pepperoni
6 mozzarella cheese sticks, each cut in 1/2, making 12 sticks
Preheat oven according to package directions for the bread. Lightly grease a large baking sheeet and set aside.
Remove bread from tubes but do not unroll. Cut each loaf into six equal pieces. Roll or flatten each piece of dough into a small rectangle. Working from one of the long ends of each rectangle, lay 6 pieces of pepperoni on top of the dough. Slice one cheese stick in 1/2, then lay end to end on top of the pepperoni. Fold dough up and over the cheese and pepperoni, pressing the ends together tightly to seal.
Lay the pepperoni rolls, seam side down, onto the baking sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
If there's any left over, wrap them well in plastic wrap, and then pop them into the freezer. Reheat in the microwave.
MMM! Look at the warm, gooey cheese! These don't last long around here!
