Cheesy Pepperoni Bread

Pepperoni bread

Last night, I was somewhat in denial that I wasn’t strolling the idyllic streets of Quebec as the sun set, or sipping wine while on a windy evening sail in Maine. What I was doing was yawning repeatedly after working all day and trying to find the Kardashians on TV (they eluded me). Ah, normal life.

I forgot that this work thing isn’t nearly as much fun as that vacation thing. New life goal: get a job as a travel photographer and just wander around from country to country, sampling local food and taking photos of local food (oh and scenery, of course). I’m only half kidding.

Anyway, to console myself I made cheesy, gooey, yummy pepperoni bread for dinner last night (that’s its technical name). If I can’t have fresh New England seafood, this isn’t a bad substitute. It was delicious!

(See my Cheers glass from Boston? I don’t even watch the show. I’m just a total sucker for souvenirs. I also bought a coffee mug and a cocktail glass. Those people loved me.)

This bread is a great substitute to homemade pizza and just as easy! It almost looks like breadsticks but tastes gooier. And cheesier.

See the little cheese pockets? Cheese pockets should be mandatory in all food items forever.

It’s a rule that you must smother the bread in Ranch dressing before eating. That’s an Indiana law. If you don’t, you are not allowed to make it. Simple, really. (Marinara is good, too. Mixing both together is not out of the realm.)

Oh, and if you are concerned about this not being a health food, see the green blob below that completely sucks all the unhealthfulness from the bread. Serve any meal with salad and it’s definitely a negative-calorie dinner.

You can find the recipe for this bread here. I didn’t make any changes, except I shredded fresh cheese. I cut the mozzarella into chunks because I was too lazy to shred anymore after the Parmesan I wanted bigger pieces of cheese. (I try to always use fresh Parmesan and mozzarella instead of bagged stuff—it really does taste better.)
