Surprise Pepperoni Cheeseball
This was inspired by Cheeseball Day! I decided to put some pepperonis on the inside too for a surprise...and I think it also helps with cream cheese : pepperoni ratio in each bite.
It's like those cakes that have sprinkles inside, but this is cream cheese.
What I used:
- Philadelphia Cream cheese
- Hormel Mini Pepperonis
- Marinara Sauce
- Crostini / Pre-sliced baguette
- Olive oil
- Saran wrap
- Cooking spray
I drizzled a little olive oil to the bread and baked it at 400 degrees to get nice golden brown.
Then I put a piece of saran wrap down and sprayed it with cooking spray. This was so when I formed the cheese ball, there would be less mess and I could easily mold it without getting my hands too dirty. I also used gloves.
I pressed down on a block of cream cheese on to the cooking spray / saran wrap..
Then I poured some mini pepperonis (the surprise!)
Then I wrapped up the edges of the saran wrap and molded a ball.
Since I used cooking spray, I could easily peel off the saran wrap.
Here it is! Pepperoni cheeseball with surprise inside...
Give it a try! We are good at this!
