Pepperoni Logs

When I was a teen I worked at a Tasty Freeze where we served ice cream and fast food. My favorite snack there was pepperoni logs. I hadn't seen these delicious little things in years and a few months ago a little Tasty Freeze opened up not far from our house and much to my surprise they had them on their menu!

I was thinking today about what to make my son, the pizza lover, for lunch so I decided to make my own. They were so easy and tasted just like the original! With three ingrediants you can't go wrong with this recipe! I made egg roll size since we were eating them for lunch. If made smaller,  they would make a great appetizer or snack food for a football game.

I used only pepperoni and cheese in these since that was what the orignial pepperoni logs had in them. However, you could easily make these pizza logs by adding your favorite pizza toppings; keeping the sauce for dipping so it doesn't make the rolls soggy. You can also make these ahead of time and freeze them; see directions below.

Pepperoni Logs

8 oz. package Pepperoni
16 oz. package Egg Roll Wrappers
16 oz. package Pizza Cheese (Kraft)
Pizza Sauce, for dipping
Canola oil for frying

Heat oil over medium heat. Lay one egg roll wrapper on work surface; keep remaining wrappers covered with damp towel so they don't dry out.  Place 5 pieces of pepperoni (overlapping) down the center of the egg roll wrapper. Place 3-4 Tbsp of cheese on top of the pepperoni. Fold the ends in then roll tightly; use small amount of water on seams to seal. Fry until golden brown. Serve with warmed pizza sauce.

To freeze: Make desired amount of rolls. Place in a single layer on a cookie sheet and place in freezer until frozen. Once frozen, place in freezer bag. Allow to thaw to room temperature then fry in hot oil.
