Cheesy Bread Cups | Easy Snacks

Anything Cheesy is bound to be a kids favourite. But if its healthy, moms are happy too. This is one often repeated recipe as an after school snack. I have made it so many times but forgot to click as we got busy eating them eah time:) 

Now the lil one also imitates her elder sister and wanted a bite too, and then loved it. The fillings for this snack is so versatile you can go with almost anything – bell peppers, drained black beans, cooked lentils / peas, boiled corn. Its also a great way to use leftover dry curries :p

As much as  presentation is key to any kid’s dish, its also important to keep it fuss free. So its a great make-ahead for kids parties too – do let me know how you liked it.. am sure you would make this soon ! 

Sending this over to Day 2 of Kids healthy snack box theme at BM#43 and also to Beluah’s who’s hosting Bake Fest#34, Harini who’s hosting Valli’s Kids Delight.
