This year was the first time we tried some hot apps and they tired out well. Well enough that we've had them the past two weeks and haven't gotten sick of them yet. The only tough part about them is plotting enough time to get them cooked and ready right before leaving for the stadium.
First up, we've got pepperoni pizza rolls and they are delicious.
1 package crescent rolls
mozzarella string cheese
marinara sauce for dipping
+ unroll the package of crescent rolls and break apart on the divided lines
(see notes below - if your doing a regular batch you'll have 8 rollups - if your cutting the crescent rolls in half to make more then you'll have 16)
+ Place three pepperonis on the crescent roll
(if cutting crescent rolls in half to make more then you'll only need 1-2)
+ On top of the pepperoni goes the string cheese
(1/2 piece of string cheese for regular size, 1/3 piece for smaller size)
+ Roll the rollup together and sprinkle garlic on top
(don't skip the garlic!)
+ bake at 375 for 12 minutes
+ serve with marinara for dipping and a game day too pick is optional
(how I make mine, coming soon)
+ The pepperoni slices and string cheeses lasted me to make one batch of these two weeks in a row and I still had plenty of pepperonis in the pack and a few string cheeses left
+ The first week I made the rolls full size and the second week I cut the crescent rolls in half to make more since we had a bigger group. Both were equally delicious and I'd switch the size purely on the size of the group being served
+ The cheese will pour out the sides of the rollup. Once they cool for a minute just take a knife, cut of the extra cheese and they'll look much prettier.
+ These still taste absolutely delicious when they aren't piping hot aka once they get down to the tailgate as well.
