Tuesday, May 16, 2017
These Mini Black Pepper Pepperoni Biscuits are the perfect mini appetizer to feed a crowd, just have a hot pot of marinara on the side for dipping them in.

Appetizers are always perfect when hosting a party, and these are a great started when serving meats, pizzas or anything Italian these little bites will go perfectly for a starter or in addition to whatever you're serving.

They're loaded with pepperoni, shredded provolone and Parmesan cheeses along with a little heat of that spicey black pepper which make these super delicious in flavor combinations.

We love making all kindsof appetizers and dipping these in a pot of warm sauce is always a hit and the first to fly off the plates.

What's even better is the recipe is so basic you can really add anything you want in them or leave them plain with just the cheese in the dough.
