Amazing how much of these ingredients are already back in the house! My husband couldn't wait to restore the balance of the cheese in our home. These are Pepperoni Pizza Puffs
. Click on the hyperlink for the original recipe but I'm going to list what I used because there are modifications.
- 3/4 cup flour
- 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
- pinch of salt
- a few shakes of red pepper flakes
- 3/4 cup 2% milk
- 1 egg, lightly beaten
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/2 cup pepperoni
- 1/2 cup homemade sauce (1 can tomato sauce & 1 small can of tomato paste, season to taste with garlic salt and Italian seasoning)
It's easy enough that the little people can help out too!
We didn't have cubed pepperoni so I just cut the slices into quarters. They worked fine.
We used the mini muffin pan so there were 24 of these little puffs. The kids LOVED these.
Very simple to make and what a cool after school snack.
He says it's 3 thumbs up but obviously he is lacking a third thumb so he's using his head! lol
I always opt to use apple sauce instead of the oil. I believe that is the only alteration I made to this recipe.
He was having so much fun dipping the muffins in the butter and cinnamon for the topping.
We tried dipping it all over and I don't recommend it. I would just stick to dipping the tops and calling it good. It's really enough sugar and it can get really messy. But hey if your into sticky then just go for it!
Finally we made some Valentine's Day treats
! A spin on the pretzels. We did not use the candies in the recipe but opted for the white chocolate.
We had an assembly line.
The kids had a GREAT time making these. They loved to eat them and share with their friends. What an easy idea. There you have it! Three easy peasy recipes to add to your menu.
