These were another recipe that I tried on the daycare kids. Of course anything with Pizza in the name is usually a hit and this was no different!
Pepperoni Pizza Puffs
(Recipe found at www.meganscookin.com)
Makes: 24 puffs
3/4 cup flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons chopped olives
4 ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded
4 ounces pepperoni, cut into small cubes
1/2 cup pizza sauce
2 tablespoons sliced green onions
Preheat oven to 375. Grease a 24 cup mini muffin pan. (Grease heavily - I didn't and mine stuck pretty good in the pan!) In a large bowl, whisk together the flour and baking powder; stir in the milk and egg. Stir inthe cheese, olives and pepperoni, let stand for 10 minutes. Stir the batter and divde among the mini-muffin cups. Bake until puffed and golden, about 25 minutes.
Microwave the pizza sauce until warmed through. Sprinkle the tops of the puffs with the green onions. Serve the puffs with the pizza sauce for dipping.
I followed this recipe, but left out the chopped olives and green onions since it was for the daycare kids. They all enjoyed them and the one that I got to try was tasty as well! :)
