Pepperoni buns are something delicious my mom created when my brothers and I were in high school. We were a very small school, class D3, so we have to travel long distances for away games. Moms of players were really good about making snacks for the bus rides. But my mom, Rosemary Anderson’s, were always the favorites and of all of the different things that could be sent with a bus full of kids, pepperoni buns were at the top of the request list for each away game!
