While working through the #P2P16 twitter feeds this week I found less time to actually feed my family (bad mom, I know). So I tore my eyes away from the writing community and scavenged through the kitchen for something to make for dinner.
What happens when no time and odd ingredients collide in my kitchen? In this case pure yumminess that I will now make on purpose more often.
All I had in the cupboard:
- A partial jar of pizza sauce
- A package of fresh mozzarella
- Mini peperoni pieces
- Mini bagels
I got out a pizza tray (a cookie sheet works just fine too) and preheated the oven to 350 degrees. I set my toddler on the counter to help and began assembling these tasty treats.
First separate your bagels into halves place them inside up on your tray and start coating with pizza sauce. I did about a spoonful per bagel half. Next I chopped up the mozzarella (shredded cheese is fine too) and sprinkled each bagel generously.
At this point stop your toddler from eating all the ingredients separately and poking each bagel with their finger.
Finally add your mini pepperonis and pop into oven for 10 minutes. When they come out the bagels will be toasted, the cheese melted, and the sauce wonderfully warm. Try to share and enjoy at about 100 calories each.
