Come along with me as I journal about my latest cooking and gardening adventures. Discover what grows in my zone five garden, and see what new recipes I try from my cookbook collection each week.

As I share recipes and information from my kitchen, I invite readers to comment and share ideas along with me in this blog. I am looking to increase followers to my blog, so that I may learn more about cooking and gardening.

Since moving to Midland, Michigan, I have been reading and researching many cooking journals, cookbooks and collected recipes from the past thirty years. Organizing pictures of gardens I enjoy has also been a joy for me, as I continue to learn about garden design and horticulture.

turkey pepperoni sandwich snacks

September is filled with days that are perfect for everything except cooking in the kitchen. so, here is another easy recipe that can be used for a September picnic, a football game, or even served along with other menu items as an appetizer.

these turkey pepperoni sandwiches can be cut to any size for any of these informal events.  and, by using Rhodes frozen bread dough, the process is made quite simple.

simply thaw one or more rolls of bread dough, depending on the number of people to be served.  one roll of dough will make 8-10 slices of these sandwich snacks.  one of these is very filling when served with a salad.  if the slices are smaller, they could be used as an appetizer for game day.

to make the sandwiches:
roll out the dough to an 11 by 11 square.  brush or spray with olive oil.  cover the dough with turkey pepperoni.  sprinkle with mozzarella cheese and then Parmesan cheese.  season with Italian herbs, pizza seasoning, or garlic powder.  add additional toppings as desired.  i used chopped white onions.  roll the dough and place on a baking sheet seam side down.  spray the top with olive oil and sprinkle with sesame seeds.

bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes.  the sandwich roll should be slightly browned and make a hard tapping sound as it is fully cooked.  cool a bit before slicing, to allow the cheese to be firm.  these sandwich snacks are terrific when served warm, but can easily be saved and reheated another day.
