Party treats for the big game - pizza crescent rolls

Happy Monday!  Man, it feels good to say that again on the blog.  :)  I posted on Friday for the first time in a month, a shame, I know.  And that came right after confessing how much I had missed blogging.

And yet, here we are again.  The itch is back.  I hope y'all had a lovely weekend and are getting some nice spring weather your way.  It was chilly here yesterday, but warm enough for a nice walk, so no real complaints here.  Today is actually a rainy mess, but it's also Monday so...

All of that aside though, tonight is the big game for NCAA basketball, and while my team isn't in the Championship game and my brackets were busted before the Final Four, I am still excited to share this simple, fun, and tasty party treat with you all!


I originally saw this idea from a terrific food blog, Plain Chicken, and I was happy to bring it to my kitchen.  

I used just 3 ingredients and these were ready in less than 30 minutes.  Huge win for a Saturday afternoon meal, and game day treat.  

1 can of crescent rolls (I always get the big and buttery ones, but that's just me.)
Pepperonis (I used about 6 per crescent, or 48 pieces.  You may use more or less)
String cheese (4 cut in half)

Preheat oven according to instructions on package of crescent rolls (Depending on your brand of rolls)
Roll out crescents as directed and fill with pepperonis and string cheese like so:  

Pop in the oven according to instructions.  
Serve with marinara sauce.  

De-licious.  So simple.  So easy.  Will definitely be doing this again.  

Are you watching the game tonight?  Who are you pulling for?

  5. I had a can of crescent roll dough lurking in the back of my fridge so I whipped these together with my roommate and oh-em-gee were they delicious! We brushed some butter on top and sprinkled them with parmesan. So good!
