'Bite size' finger food seems to be the theme around here. We have enjoyed countless quinoa bite lunches. Then came the pizza bites and you had to know the cheeseburger bites would not be far behind. Bite Size Bacon Double Cheeseburger Puffs tastes just like a burger in a bite size puff. They are soft, tender and a little buttery just like a hamburger bun.
Loaded with makings of our favorite burgers: beef, bacon and cheese. They are a complete hit. Chad raved about them. He was so excited. He kept dipping them in ketchup and saying "Its amazing they taste just like a bacon double cheeseburger". I was in total agreement. Well there you have it....
For lunch we serve a small portion of these puffs with fresh vegetables and it makes Munchkin totally happy. But, as an appetizer these are perfect. Serve with your favorite burger toppings, and even a pickle on the side. Perfect!
What is your perfect formula for getting your kids to eat? Right now, ours is bite size food and fresh veggies.
With love from our kitchen table to yours! XO
