Pepperoni Rolls - Future Pirate Chef Cookbook Entry

Behold the majesty of the Pepperoni Roll.  I developed this little concoction while hanging with some friends for the weekend.  The local grocery store didn't have much in the way of food, but they had some odd essentials, which I managed to turn into a culinary wonder... The Pepperoni Roll!

Here's what you'll need:

1. Pepperoni (This time I used Turkey Pepperoni as it's 60% less fat... as if that'll matter by the time these are done)

2. Pillsbury Crescent Rolls (one package is enough to make 4-5 of these Pepperoni Rolls)

3. Mozzarella String Cheese Sticks

4. Preheat oven to 375

Unroll the Crescent Roll dough, making sure to keep two of the crescent triangle together so that they form a rectangle that looks like this.

Place 5-6 pepperoni slices in the middle of the dough.

Add one mozzarella stick.

Wrap up the little concoction, making sure to pinch the edges and seal it all in.  Double check to make sure the crescent roll perforations are sealed.  Remove excess dough from ends and save for a potential 5th roll.  One crescent roll package has 4 rectangles of dough, though if you remove the excess dough after you pinch your pepperoni rolls closed you can get enough dough for a fifth roll.

Place then in a non-stick pan, leaving an inch or so between each one.

Next place your pepperoni rolls in the oven and bake for 8-10 minutes.  You just want them a wee bit golden brown.

Eat as a full roll or cut them up into little bits as an appetizer. Soooooo Gooooood!
