Halloween Partay: Mac & Meat and Pepperoni Rolls

Not the prettiest picture, sure but, one of the most delicious spreads out there.

Gosh, I love cheese. And meat. And carbs.

Look at those pepperoni rolls! And mac and meat! Which is just like hamburger helper from what I understand of hamburger helper. But this one uses the blue box and your own ingenuity. 

Mac and Meat!

Pepperoni Rolls!

A truly perfect pairing.

So, I am having a huge halloween party at my house today. Huge. Hugest party I have ever had. So, there is a lot to do and stress over and pick at. 

Luckily I have comfort food like this to munch on and chill with. 

Also, I will try and post pics of the party/food and drinks sometime next week. Maybe as my Friday post. 

We'll see how together and adult I can be ;)

My Aunt Tootsie is a dietician and one of the best "throw things together" cooks I know. 

You know what I mean. One of those people who just tosses things together and they are just randomly deliciously perfect. 

These are two of her classics that she would make for us kids when there were seven of us and just 2 moms. 

I've been thinking lately of updating the Mac & Meat Recipe even further by adding some cooked veggies. Some more color and taste. It's just sooooo good and comforting as is that I am tentative to mess with it t all. Let me know what you think.

Mac & Meat
-1 box family size kraft mac and cheese
-1 can cream of mushroom soup
-1 lb ground beef

Prepare the mac and cheese and brown the meat. Once both are cooked, throw all ingredients together and enjoy.

Pepperoni Rolls
-4 packages biscuts
-1 package pepperoni 

Take a piece of pepperoni, fold a biscut in half around folded pepperoni piece. Lay out on cookie sheet, bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes.


  1. Our family loves pepperoni rolls. I usually make dough and put cheese in them. I've never heard of using biscuit dough...I can't wait to try this. What a great way to cut down on prep time, thanks :)

  2. wow, those pepperoni rolls are a no brainer! And I've got a pack of pepperoni that i wasn't sure what I was going to do with, but now I know!

  3. Love the pepperoni roll idea! My kids love Mac and Cheese with 1 lb of browned ground beef, 1 can of drained whole kernel corn and about a 1/2 cup shredded cheddar. Just make the mac & cheese as directed on the box, add the rest and serve. We call it "corn-a-roni" :)

  4. Not a pretty picture? I disagree, Meaghan...I think it's beautiful. Mac and cheese with pepperoni rolls? How could it not be? ;-)
