These are perfect for lunch meal prep, eating with soup or on-the-go breakfast/snacking.

The beauty of this recipe is the simplicity. You probably have these ingredients on hand. If the mini pepperonis are missing, you can always sub in some cooked and chopped up bacon or sausage in its place. Or just leave out the meat components all together.

I’ve made these with oat flour and regular all purpose flour and both have turned out perfect. I’m definitely trying almond flour next with adding an additional egg to the recipe for extra binding.
