    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.

    This is a family favorite of ours. We always make this recipe on Christmas Eve and sometimes on New Years Eve. But, its good anytime of the year. I added a little more pepperoni and cheese to the recipe.
