Homemade "Jammer Sticks"

I have seen countless recipes pinned on Pinterest about these pizza rolls of sorts.  The basic idea is the wrap cheese and pizza meat into a crescent roll, bake them, and dip them in pizza sauce.  After a crazy fun holiday and day of sick kids....I need a filling, good, easy and fast dinner idea tonight.  I turned to the items in my kitchen and realized I had all the basic ingredients to pull off such a meal!  As I placed my sons' plates in front of them, they swiftly inspected this new meal that sat before them.  My 8-year old exclaims..."These are just like the Jammer Sticks we have at school!"  Awesome!  Now, my new dinner has a name :))

Here is the basic recipe and instructions (as well as pictures!)  These were such a hit and they filled up my boys (including Daddy) without having to break the bank!!

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.  Open a can of crescent rolls (name brand or makes no difference.  We had a can of each and there was no distinctive taste difference.)  Place 3-4 pepperonis on the long end of each rolled out roll.  Cut a mozzarella cheese stick in half (we are probably going to cut this half again long way because the cheese wasn't quite as melty as we desired) and place on top of the pepperoni.  Roll the crescent roll as normal.  Place rolls on baking sheet and bake for recommended time listed on the tube of the rolls.

Once cooked, serve with side of pizza sauce for dipping and ENJOY!  Three of these bad boys filled me up!  Daddy could barely eat five!  (He is a very big eater so this says a LOT!)

We have to use these meal several times a month (to replace some of our regular frozen pizza nights).  I am so glad I put this together and I hope you all enjoy them as much as my family did!
