I try to come up with different things to fix for dinner that my children will eat, I mean you can only do so many things with hamburger meat or chicken that they will actually eat! So the other night I was making pigs in a blanket and only had a few hotdogs to use so i thought I would mix it up some. I used crescent rolls and cut them in half to make smaller rolls. Then I used turkey & American cheese in a few and then Pepperoni and cheese in the others. My favorite would have to have been the pepperoni ones! A co-worker of mine used to make them in biscuits all rolled up. Fast forwarding a few weeks its time for my oldest daughters birthday. Now I usually do hotdogs cause it cheap and easy to fix but like i said before I’m trying different things so I decided on making the pepperoni rolls with biscuits……yea, um not so smart! I had to roll them out flat then cut the in half then stuff & roll them back up. That’s just toooo much time and not enough hands! My advice is if you ever want to make them just go the easy route and use crescent rolls.
So here is what you need for Pepperoni Rolls
1 pkg small pepperoni
1 pkg shredded cheese
Crescent rolls – qty determined by how many you want to make
Divide out your crescent rolls on your baking sheet. Layer pepperoni then cheese and roll up as directed on package. Bake in over an directed on package.
Serve with dipping sauces like pizza sauce or ranch dressing.
How about a Pizza Ring
This requires a round baking sheet/baking stone
You will need the same ingredients as above but add in your fav pizza toppings
Chopped Peppers Etc
Separate your crescent rolls out and lay them overlapping corners around your baking sheet creating a circle
Add your layers starting with a thin layer of pizza sauce
then meats, veggies and finish with cheese. *If using ground beef only put about a spoon full of meat on each crescent roll.*
Once all topping are completed fold the ends of the crescents over and tuck them so the filling is enclosed.
Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes making sure the crescent rolls are baked completely.
