My mother made the pepperoni rolls for me when I was growing up. I loved pepperoni and would walk around the house munching on stick pepperoni. One she made the rolls for me as a snack and I feel in love with them. If you like, add some chopped-up veggies to the rolls. —Wendy Steiner, Suwanee, Georgia
