I cut the calories and fat count down from the original recipe by using turkey pepperoni (I promise you won't notice a difference) and reduced fat crescent rolls and cheese. There are 2 rolls in one serving for a total of 325 calories without any dipping sauce.
Pepperoni String Cheese Roll Ups
1 (8 ounce) package reduced fat refrigerated crescent roll dough
4 reduced fat cheese sticks, halved
1 (3.5 ounce) package sliced turkey pepperoni
optional - marinara or ranch sauce for dipping
Garlic Butter Glaze
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1/2 teaspoon Italian seasonings
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 Tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
For the rolls:
Take each triangle of crencent roll dough and place about 6 pepperoni on the bottom of the triangle. Place half of a cheese stick on top and roll up. Place seam side down on a cookie sheet and bake for 10-14 minutes or until golden brown.
For the glaze:
While rolls are cooking, combine the melted butter, Italian seasonings, garlic powder and Parmesan cheese in a small bowl.
When rolls are done remove from the oven and drizzle with the garlic butter glaze. Serve with marinara or ranch for dipping.
