In West Virginia, It's a Pepperoni Roll

From Wikipedia

I'll definitely have to check out one of these bad boys the next time I drive through the state.

Wikipedia says they are especially to be found in convenience stores.

They are a fairly soft white yeast bread roll with pepperoni baked inside.  The oils from the baking pepperoni get into the bread which gives it the taste.

Pepperoni rolls were invented by Giuseppe "Joseph" Argiro at the country club in Fairmont, West Virginia in 1927.

A version of it is in the military's MREs.  The pepperoni roll has a resemblance to Britain's pasty and sausage rolls found in mining communities.
