Garlic Pepperoni Bread Recipe! Use Up Leftover Hamburger Buns!

We had a bunch of hamburger buns laying around that we weren’t going to use so I wanted to come up with a use for them before they went bad. I was making spaghetti for dinner and was all out of garlic bread so I decided to make garlic pepperoni bread with them. They turned out great and could be used as a fun lunch idea for the kids too.

 You’ll need hamburger buns, Hormel pepperoni minis, tripple cheddar shredded cheese, butter and garlic powder.

 Butter your buns and sprinkle lightly with garlic powder. Don’t use too much! Then sprinkle with shredded cheese and pepperoni minis.

Broil on low in the oven until the cheese is melted and bubbly.

These also make a fun after-school snack and are the perfect way to use up those leftover hamburger buns!
