Did you know that pepperoni isn't just for pizza or cold pasta salads? Throw some in a skillet and brown them up over medium-high heat. Remove and drain on a paper towel, but leave that little bit of pepperoni oil rendered to flavor the rest of your dish.
Add 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil to the skillet, 2 chopped shallots and a handful or two of sliced baby bella mushrooms. Saute until the shallots are wilted and the mushrooms have browned.
They will fall in love with you because you gave them pepperoni!
