These golden brown rounds from field editor Vikki Rebholz of West Chester, Ohio, have lots of pepperoni flavor. "They're easy to make, and really good!" says Vikki.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 15 min. YIELD:12 servings


  • 1/2 cup diced pepperoni
  • 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 egg, separated
  • 1 tube (8 ounces) refrigerated crescent rolls


  • 1. In a small bowl, combine the pepperoni, cheese, oregano and egg yolk. In another small bowl, whisk egg white until foamy; set aside. Separate crescent dough into four rectangles; seal perforations.
  • 2. Spread pepperoni mixture over each rectangle to within 1/4 in. of edges. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a short side; pinch seams to seal. Cut each into six slices.
  • 3. Place cut side down on greased baking sheets; brush tops with egg white. Bake at 375° for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 2 dozen.

"This is an excellent, much-loved recipe in my house! Just a couple of suggestions--after making the "jelly rolls", it's best to refrigerate them for a while to make slicing easier. Also, I use parchment paper when cooking these--they stick very easily otherwise."

"I threw these together for a last-minute birthday celebration: 15 people on their way to my house! These were easy to assemble, and the ingredients are ones that I would likely have on hand any time. They were the first appetizer to be finished at our gathering. I will definitely make them again!"

"Tasty, (I sprinkled them liberally with red pepper flakes before rolling) but mine did not look anything like the picture! They were messy! Any suggestions on how to get that pinwheel look?"

"Made this this past weekend EXCEPT I used whole sandwich style pepperoni, ham, and provolone cheese, overlapped in layers - and used the recipe creations sheet of crescent roll dough. It was really easy and came out more of a stromboli flavor. Serve marinara sauce on the side for dipping."
