Pass the Pepperoni rolls... touchdown

Football season is back, and it’s time to share some easy snack recipes for game-watching. This recipe is so simple. It can be put together in ten minutes at half-time, as long as the dough is previously thawed and risen. It only has two ingredients… bread dough and pepperoni.


1 loaf frozen Bridgford Ready-dough bread dough
1 package, 8 oz. sliced or stick pepperoni

Thaw one loaf frozen bread dough and let rise in warm place until doubled, approximately 5-6 hours. Cut pepperoni stick into 15 pieces (if you are using thinly sliced pepperoni, stack 5 pieces together and fold over once. Pinch off golf ball-sized piece of dough and wrap it around chunk of pepperoni, sealing all seams very well. Place rolls on greased cookie sheet 2 inches apart. Let rise 15 minutes. Place cookie sheet in 375 degrees preheated oven. Bake 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven and cool slightly (10 minutes). Serve hot.

Makes about 15 rolls.


  1. Just in time for the beginning of football season. These would be good to take to a Fresno State tailgate before the big game. Thanks for the tip. Do I drink beer with these treats or do I drink wine? I'm thinking beer to go with my beer belly. Have you ever heard of a wine belly?

  2. AWWHHhhh swing battah, sorry wrong sport, but these appetizers are in a league of their own!

  3. Dear Touchdowntommy, Beer would be great with these little dandies. Any kind, just as long as it's very cold. Thanks for the comment.

  4. Thanks Cyrhen. These babies are in a league of their own... a very easy league. The peewee league, because they are so easy to make even a peewee could do it.

  5. This looks great and seems easy enough to prepare. I'm going to try it on Sunday. I have a hungry crew and I can never keep them fed during Sunday fiootball.

  6. These are so very easy, and always a hit...even if your team isn't winning.
