Fried Surprise Bread

Make any hot roll or bread dough recipe.

Let rise as directed.

Pinch off a ball of dough as you would for a roll.

Roll out to 5 or 6 inches wide.

Lay 3 to 5 slices of pepperoni on the dough and fold it over to seal.

My mom made these and we ate them with her great spaghetti. It was a great treat when company came. Terry Payne Tysarczyk requested the recipe.
