Lately I’m into easy appetizers.  But they still have to taste great.  And this one is even pretty healthy from a nutrition perspective.  How lucky is that!

Mix, press in pan, bake and cut

I got the recipe from a neighbor at a lovely dinner last summer.  We were both hosting visiting artists for a local music festival and she decided we should all get together!

A delicious dinner, great conversation and a new recipe.  That’s my idea of a fun night out!

Served!

When I made these for a blog trial my husband and I had some as a late night snack.  Which meant we ended up with some leftovers.  I had planned to reheat the leftovers in the microwave, which I’m sure would have been great.  But in the end, I fried up some squares in a little hot oil and they were amazing with a beautiful browned cheese exterior.

Fried Leftovers!

So here you are, an tasty appetizer that comes with a second act.  Next time I just may have to start with a double batch!

    These do sound absolutely wonderful! Like salads, I get into appetizer ruts. I always serve the same things over and over again. It’s time to break out and do something new! Like these!
