Pepperoni Pizza Puffs
Tonight for dinner we had Pepperoni Pizza Puffs. This recipe I found on Pinterest. Click here for the link to the recipe I used. I wasn’t sure at first that I could find my mini muffin pan; a few years ago, I had to move my cake pans to tubs in the basement because they were threatening to take over my kitchen. Seriously, I counted them once and quit somewhere around 30. One year, three different people gave me the exact same cake pan for Christmas. I can’t walk into Williams-Sonoma and not come out with some sort of cake pan, cookie cutter, or pancake mold. (For Christmas this year, my mom got me Star Wars pancake molds and a Darth Vader spatula!) But back to the mini muffin pan. Naturally, it was in the last tub I checked. (Do you know why things are always in the last place you look? Because after you find them, you stop looking!) I washed it up and got busy mixing the puffs.
I made a few adjustments to the recipe. After greasing the pan, I sprinkled it with garlic salt like we do when we make pizza. I added garlic powder and onion powder to the puff mixture. I also put in a little extra pepperoni and cheese. Before putting the pan in the oven, I sprinkled more cheese on top. I meant to also sprinkle some Italian seasoning on the top, but I forgot.
I warmed up some pizza sauce for dipping, and the puffs were a big hit with the kids. I thought they were good, but for some reason I was expecting more of a biscuit taste. I guess I forgot about the egg; there definitely was an “eggy” flavor. But, these were super easy and fast to mix up. We will be making these again.
