Beth Adams


1 (12-count) package Dinner Rolls, sliced in half (see directions for more details)
1 cup Pizza or Marinara Sauce
2½ cups Mozzarella Cheese, shredded (divided)
1 (5 ounce) package Mini Pepperoni (regular size may be substituted)
½ cup (1 stick) Butter, melted
2 tablespoons Dried Minced Onion
2 tablespoons Parmesan Cheese, grated (plus more for garnishing to taste)
2 teaspoons Dried Oregano
¾ teaspoon Garlic Powder
½teaspoon Kosher Salt
¼ teaspoon Black Pepper
1 tablespoon Fresh Italian Flat-leaf or Regular Parsley, optional for garnishing

Using a large serrated knife, slice the rolls in half so you have a ‘slab’ of tops and a ‘slab’ of bottoms; don’t pull the rolls apart and slice individually because you want to keep them connected. Place the bottom ‘slab’ of rolls in greased 9x13 baking dish.
Evenly add the pizza sauce to the bottom slab of rolls.
Evenly sprinkle with about ½ cup mozzarella cheese; set remainder aside.
Evenly layer the pepperoni over the cheese.
Evenly sprinkle with the remaining mozzarella cheese.

Add the top ‘slab’ of rolls; set aside.
To a medium microwave-safe bowl, add the butter and heat on high power to melt, about 1 minute.
Add the onion, 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, oregano, garlic powder, salt, pepper, and whisk to combine.
Evenly and slowly pour or spoon the butter mixture over the rolls. Use a spatula or spoon to spread the mixture over the tops. Some of the mixture will pool at the base of the rolls.
Cover with aluminum foil and allow rolls to stand at room temp for about 5 to 10 minutes.
Bake covered at 350º for about 12 to 15 minutes or until cheese has melted.
Evenly garnish with Parmesan cheese to taste and optional parsley. Slice into individual sliders and serve immediately.
