Looking for an easy appetizer idea for your next holiday party? While tried and true options like chips, meatballs, crackers and cheese are always good standbys. Wouldn’t it be fun to serve something a little different that adds a touch of flair? These Pepperoni Pastries fit that bill perfectly.
One of the things that makes this appetizer a favorite of mine, is that it uses ready-made puff pastry. Working with puff pastry is really quite easy. Just be sure to thaw it for the required time (about 40 minutes) before you assemble the pastry rolls. I also love the fact that is uses easy to find ingredients like; pepperoni, Parmesan, dried herbs and honey Dijon mustard (you can mix 1 part honey into 2 parts Dijon to create your own honey Dijon mustard.)
Make Ahead Option
Once you make the pastries, they need to be refrigerated for about 30 minutes to firm them up before slicing and baking. The great news, is that you can make them a day ahead. That means all you have to do is slice and bake the day of your gathering. Then, voila – you have a snazzy, warm holiday appetizer! This recipe actually makes 2 rolls, which yields about 50 pieces. I only needed 1 roll for a gathering I had with neighbors earlier this week. I popped the other roll into the freezer. My plan is to thaw that roll (for 40 minutes), then slice and bake it for a party this weekend. Not 100% sure how that will work, but I decided to give it a try since I ended up with an an extra roll.
