Italian Pepperoni Bites

Do you have any recipes that you have had forever, but have forgotten about them??  This is one of those!  I cut this recipe out of a magazine YEARS ago and haven't made it in forever!  I'm so glad I stumbled across it because I forgot how yummy and easy it was!!  I think these are intended to be an appetizer, but I make them a little bigger and we eat them for dinner.  Either way, try them!  They won't disappoint!!
Italian Pepperoni Bites
1 package (3.5 oz) sliced pepperoni, chopped
1 cup shredded Swiss cheese
1 tomato, chopped
3/4 cup mayonnaise
2 Tbsp prepared pesto
2 packages (10 oz each) refrigerated flaky biscuits
Preheat oven to 350.  In bowl, combine pepperoni, cheese, tomato, mayonnaise, and pesto.
 (Now, the original recipe says to cut each biscuit in half and to use a mini muffin pan, but I don't cut them in half and use a regular muffin pan.)  Place biscuits into greased muffin cups, pressing gently to fit cups.  Spoon 1 tablespoon (more if you are doing regular cups) into each cup.  Bake 20 - 25 minutes.  Serve warm.
How good do they look???  :)
You can serve them as an appetizer, or throw a salad together and have them for dinner.  They are SO GOOD!!!  Enjoy!  :)
