Puff Balls

These are really easy to put together and they make a nice little appetizer for get-togethers.

Though we used pepperoni, you could substitute cooked Italian sausage, Canadian bacon, or even regular cooked bacon. I think that the next time we make these I might sprinkle a little shredded Parmesan cheese over them the last 5 minutes of baking for an extra kick.

We found the original recipe here.

Printable Recipe


  • 8 oz pepperoni
  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 2 10 1/8 oz packages crescent dinner rolls

1. Preheat oven to 350 F.

2. Unroll the crescent roll dough and separate into triangles. Roll out slightly with a rolling pin and cut each triangle into 3 smaller triangles.

3. Dice the pepperoni.

4. In a medium bowl, combine the pepperoni and cream cheese.

5. Place a small spoonful of the cream cheese mixture in the center of each dough triangle. Roll up the dough and fold in the sides. Place on a cookie sheet (you'll need two).

6. Bake for 11-13 minutes until golden brown. Let cool slightly and serve.
