Husband has been away. He’ll be home for a late super tonight, so the hot pepperoni pie will be ready for his arrival. I think I’ve published the recipe before but here it is:
3/4 cup pepperoni, diced
3/4 cup muenster cheese, cubed
3/4 cup flour
1 c milk
Place ingredients in bowl in the order given. Stir with a slotted spoon until all lumps are out (except cheese and pepperoni). Pour in buttered pie plate and bake at 400 for 30-35 minutes.
The last couple of times I made this recipe the Littles complained that the pepperoni was too spicy. So, I asked my deli man what would make for a savory substitute. He gave me an Italian salami with a hint of fennel, but not so much heat. He told me to remember its name as Pinocchio. So, as I’m apt to do I’ve renamed the dish Pinocchio Pie. Hopefully the Littles will enjoy the name and new and improved milder flavor.
If anyone lies and pretends they like it if they don’t…their nose will grow!
