One of the reasons why I love working with Hormel as a member of their Hormel Family bloggers is because I get to find new ways to use pepperoni. I LOVE pepperoni and if it’s not in our pantry or fridge when we need it we get a little sad. I do receive samples to share these recipes with you and this one is going to be a new Hormel family favorite.
