6ounceschopped pepperoni I like the thin slices for this typically found in a 6 oz package
2 cupsshredded cheese (I use 50% Mozzarella and 50% Provolone)You can use Cheddar, a cheddar blend all mozzarella Pepper Jack or whatever you enjoy.
1teaspoonoregano or Italian seasoning
1teaspoon garlic paste or 1/4 teaspoon garlic powderoptional
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line a loaf pan with parchment paper (it can hang over the sides.
In a mixing bowl, combine the eggs, milk, sugar and oil and whisk until combined.
Add the flour, salt, pepper, spice and baking powder (all at once) and mix with a spatula until just incorporated.
Add in the pepperoni and cheese and mix with a spatula until just incorporated.
Scrape batter into the lined loaf pan and bake on the middle rack for 55-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out dry.
Optional - I like to melt butter and mix it with garlic paste (or garlic powder) and pull the biscuits or loaf from the oven and quickly brush them with the mixture a few minutes before done cooking. A delicious flavor boost!
Allow the loaf to cool in the pan 5-10 minutes and then lift the loaf out, slice and enjoy If making as biscuits, bake for 10-15 minutes (depending on how large you make them). I typically use an ice cream scoop and place the batter on a parchment-lined baking pan.
We enjoy this both as a quick bread and as biscuits. Feel free to cut the sugar down, this is just how my family enjoys it.
