Pepperoni rolls

Pepperoni rolls

Neglect packaged frozen pizza bites! These Homemade Pepperoni Rolls are a exciting dinner, satisfying snack, or effortless lunch box item and are made with just five elements.


Final week I waxed poetic about the peanut butter bars I grew up consuming in the Midwest (study: Peanut Butter Quinoa Bars). Now it’s time for yet another regional goodie: Pepperoni Rolls! Google tells me they hail from West Virginia. I grew up consuming a model in Pennsylvania, where the colleges even sell them for fundraisers. They’re that great!


These are truly a smaller sized edition of the Pizza Bread recipe I posted a couple of years in the past. I was inspired by my sister-in-law, who makes this mini edition for her teens and his close friends (and even sends them with his team for away sports matches–hello, Greatest Mom Ever!).


My little ones have been loving these (cold) in their lunch boxes. I’ve also taken some out of the freezer for “Scrounge Nights” when we’re eating out of the fridge and freezer.



I make these pepperoni rolls with frozen bread dough. I use packaged dinner roll dough from the freezer part, but you can undoubtedly make your own dough also!


This pepperoni roll recipe can make a single dozen, but come to feel cost-free to double or triple it. Scroll down for directions on freezing them.


How to Make Homemade Pepperoni Rolls


Defrost the rolls in accordance to package deal guidelines.


Press or roll dough balls into circle that are at least one/4-inch larger than the diameter of your pepperoni (for me, that was about a four one/two-inch circumference). Try out to avoid utilizing flour on your surface, which will make the dough edges tougher to seal. Mix beaten egg with Parmesan and spread a heaping teaspoon of the mixture above every single circle, leaving at least 1/4-inch all around all sides. (I have tried these rolls with out the egg/Parm mix and they just don’t taste as rich and yummy.)


Top every with a slice of deli pepperoni and two squares of sliced mozzarella (not shredded–that’s as well difficult to work with right here!). Sprinkle with a bit of oregano for an added kick of flavor.


Roll each and every one tightly.


Tuck in ends, and press all edges tightly with your fingertips till well sealed.


Place rolls seam-side down on a baking sheet lined with parchment or a silicone baking mat. Brush with olive oil and bake in a 400-degree oven for ten-twelve minutes or until finally golden brown. Transfer to a cooling rack. Serve warm or cold with pizza sauce for dipping.


Can I Freeze Pepperoni Rolls?


Yes! Just let them cool and transfer into a freezer bag. Get them out as you need them and reheat in the microwave or toaster oven. Or defrost them overnight in the fridge to put in lunch boxes the up coming morning.

Steak tips

Steak tips

Perhaps you’ve never ever heard of steak suggestions just before, or possibly you’ve been eating them this complete time. I was introduced to the affordable minimize by my husband’s New England-based mostly family members. It’s an low-cost reduce of beef that has a loose-grain texture, excellent for soaking up marinades like this soy and balsamic one particular that’s salty and tangy at the identical time. Throw some mushrooms into the pan right after the meat’s prepared, include some a lot more vinegar and a touch of butter, and you’re left with a glossy sauce to drag every single bite of steak by means of.


What Are Steak Ideas?


Steak suggestions are lower from the a variety of muscle tissues all around the sirloin and round. Also known as flap meat, it has a loose, lengthy grain and is very beefy in flavor. It’s not as tender as, say, the tenderloin, but the loose grain also implies that it soaks up marinades really effectively. Steak suggestions are very best cooked at least medium-unusual — any much more rare and the meat is nonetheless quite difficult and chewy. Don’t have entry to steak ideas? Flank steak is a fantastic substitute. If you can, get the steak in large pieces and reduce it yourself rather than buying steak that’s presently lower into cubes.

Crowd the Pan!


When you usually sear meat, you don’t want to crowd the pan so that the meat will get a opportunity to brown. With this recipe, nevertheless, crowding is a great factor. The marinade includes sugar, which contributes to browning but also can burn easily. Keeping the meat near with each other signifies that there’s significantly less chance for the marinade to drip off into the bottom of the pan and burn up. And don’t worry that the steak won’t be flavorful simply because it doesn’t brown as a lot — that’s the job of the marinade.

(Or cook to 130°F to 135°F for medium steak, and 140°F to 145°F for medium-effectively steak — add a minute or two for every 10 degrees essential.) Transfer to a serving platter and set aside in a warm place or cover loosely with aluminum foil.


Include the mushrooms to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally and adjusting the heat if essential, until tender, about five minutes — they will release a lot of liquid.
