I am sharing this recipe with you because I recently found out that my friend Cheryl (who generously shared it with me in the first place) just celebrated her son’s 20th birthday….HOW ON EARTH CAN THIS BE?
I mean the kid was just a sweet smart (too smart for his own good) loving little boy….he is a kid for crying out loud!
How the heck did I get to the age where my friends have 20-year-old kids?
So anyway, that aside….(seriously considering BOTOX at this point) Mr Man actually asked me to make this recipe for a fun-filled firefighter annual Christmas party at our dear friends’ Shawn and Chris house (who also happen to have a 19-year-old kid….SERIOUSLY!)
This is ridiculously simple but trust me super delicious and a crowd-pleaser. CAN’T GO WRONG! Perfect for parties, gathering, football season, drinking because you have teenagers…oh wait…hmmmm never mind :)
Cheryl said her mom (who happens to be french Canadian…trust me I am like a magnet for foreigners) said she got the recipe from George Martin. Can’t find it anywhere on the internet super highway but give credit where credit is due…sort of!
8-ounce package of pepperoni
2 packages crescent rolls
1 12-ounce package shredded cheese
1 egg, lightly beaten
3 tablespoons dry oregano
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
Layer one of your crescent rolls at the bottom of a 9×13 baking pan. Pressing it to fit and close any gaps. Brush with beaten egg. Layer half of your pepperoni, top with about half of your cheese, sprinkle with 1 tablespoon oregano, another layer of pepperoni, more cheese (leave about 1/4 cup for the top) and finally 1 tablespoon oregano. Cover with your second crescent roll dough, brush with beaten egg, sprinkle with remaining oregano and cheese.
Put in your preheated oven for 30-35 minutes until golden brown. Let cool for a few minutes and cut into squares.
Simple and Delicious: A perfect appetizer dish. I should have renamed this dish: Gone in 60 seconds! I thought I was going to have time to take pics at the party but my dish was empty before I knew it! I guess that’s a good thing!
