The Donut Shop's Ramparoni Rolls
Ramp season is special for a number of reasons, but especially one: RAMPARONI ROLLS.
That's right: pepperoni rolls with ramps. There are a few spots around the state that add ramps to this bakery special, and I've been slowly making my way to all of them.
The Donut Shop in Buckhannon, known for pioneering the ground pepperoni movement, simply signals the beginning of the season with a sign on their board that says "ramparoni rolls."
They serve four different kinds of ramparoni rolls: a regular pepperoni roll with ramps, a hot pepper cheese pepperoni roll with ramps, a mozzarella cheese pepperoni roll with ramps, and an American cheese pepperoni roll with ramps. Above is a regular with ramps baked right in.
For the rolls with cheese, the side is split open and hunks of cheese are added in. Above and below are the hot pepper cheese ramparoni roll.
Something about the spice of the pepperoni and the garlicky onion is a beautiful combo.
Here's a pepperoni roll split with mozzarella cheese added.
And, finally, here's the one split open with slices of thick American cheese.
Which is your fav?
