- 1 (6 ounce) package pepperoni slices
- cooking spray
- pizza sauce (optional)
Directions See How It's Made
- Slice the Queso Blanco frying cheese into thin slices, but try not to cause any holes in the slices. Cut the slice in half so that it is roughly in 2 square pieces, about 1 - 2 inches in size. Lay a slice of pepperoni on top of one piece of cheese, and top with another slice of cheese. Repeat making as many appetizers as you want. Heat a non-stick skillet over medium high heat and spray with cooking spray. Once the skillet is hot, place the cheese bites onto the pan, and fry until golden brown on one side, about a minute. Flip over and fry the second side until golden brown as well. Serve warm, or at room temperature. Optional, serve a side of warmed pizza sauce for dipping the cheesy appetizers into the sauce. Regular or turkey pepperoni will work equally well.
