Fabulous Football Food Friday!

Good Friday morning to all! I am so thankful that this is a three day weekend for me, I need it!!! Our local high school football season has just gotten underway so I thought I'd share a quick and easy recipe that would be great for tailgating parties or as a quick snack before heading out to the game. I call these Pepperoni Bites and I found the recipe while surfing on line a while back. I've tweaked it a bit to suit my family's tastes.

Pepperoni Bites

1 can biscuits (not the flaky kind)
sliced pepperoni
shredded Italian or mozzarella cheese
Italian Seasoning
Garlic Powder
Melted butter
Parmesan cheese

Cut each biscuit in half. Place two slices of pepperoni on each half, top pepperoni with a bit of shredded cheese and roll up. Pinch the edges of the biscuit together to seal and place seam side down on baking sheet. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning and garlic powder to taste. Make sure none of the bites are touching each other as they will stick together during baking. Bake according to directions on biscuit can. When they come out of the oven, brush with melted butter and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

These are so yummy and quick to make up. You can also heat up some spaghetti sauce or marinara sauce to use for dipping. We like to take melted butter and add some garlic powder to it and use this for dipping. Sometimes I'll even make a big batch of these and serve them for dinner with a salad. A quick and easy meal under 30 minutes! Works for me! I am linking this up to Colleen's Recipe Swap over at And Baby Makes Five. Click here to check out all the great recipes on her blog.

So, what's on tap for this final unofficial last long weekend of summer? We haven't made any plans here. There's a huge flea market about an hour from us in a small town that is held every year during Labor Day weekend. We've thought about heading up for that, but it's usually so crowded and that makes it hard to look at things so I'm not sure I feel like doing that. I have some craft things to finish up for Char's Autumn Swap that I am participating in so I need to do that. Then there's always the household chores that are never ending!

Well, gotta run for now and finish getting ready for work. Don't forget about my Fall/Halloween giveaway. If you haven't signed up, scroll down to my last post and do it! I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe Labor Day weekend!

Until next time. . .
