Boys are so much simpler than girls. I was a boy. My only sibling was a boy. My friends for most of my “boydom” were boys. I have two sons and no daughters. By now, I’ve figured out the limits of the mind of a boy. Ready? Here it is: eat, sleep, sports, video games and crude humor. That’s it. No more. We are really simple creatures. Here is Maggie for another monday combining two of us boys favorite topics: food and crude humor Here’s Maggie…
Most of you know by now that daughter #2, our youngest, has a picky palate. I am always looking for weeknight dishes that are easy to make, and that she might actually eat. This one is a keeper. I have to credit my SIL for the idea, and we make these often. My dear brother-in-law who passed away two years ago called these “Fart Rolls”; for obvious reasons. However, with that as his measure, he’d have to add “fart” as a prefix to every thing he ate! He was pretty gassy! I miss him all the time, even more so when we make these yummy, easy, and quick rolls. This one is for you, Big D.
PS: We recently made these with a bit of leftover baked ham and grated swiss. Yumola!
What you need:
1 package refrigerated French bread dough (I used Pillsbury)
3 oz package of pepperoni, diced into ¼” bits
½ cup grated mozzarella cheese
1 tbs olive oil
marinara sauce for dipping
What you do:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Remove dough from roll and cut into 12 even slices. Pat each slice into a disc about 2-3” in diameter.
Place a small amount- about ½ tsp of pepperoni on the dough,
top with about the same amount of cheese.
Wrap dough around the filling and pinch it closed, into a ball. Place dough balls onto a pizza stone or baking sheet. Brush with olive oil, and sprinkle with garlic salt. Bake for about 10-15 minutes, until golden brown. Serve with warm marinara sauce for dipping.
