SYKE!

Haha, so remember that promise I made about posted? Fail. But, I feel bad every time I don’t post, so that has to have SOME merit….right? So, lets hit up on some more appetizers :D. I still haven’t felt like I’ve found a good start off the summer right main course that I would like to do. If you have any suggestions comment on my blog :D. Also, I am looking for eaters. I decided to weight myself yesterday and discovered I am at a tragic 165. So, I am going to start cooking for other people! Obviously I am looking for people in my city because I don’t trust my car to go anywhere outside. If I can I would like to cook at said locations, but I can always cook and bring it over :D. This is just a test idea. I mean I could just cut the ingredients, but I find it more fun to share :D. Anyway, today I am doing a recipe for pizza puffs and another post to show you what I do at work on occasion:D. I will probably post a drink tomorrow because a lot of people are graduating (and leaving me). The drink is actually coming from that cookbook I mentioned oh so long ago. I am going to give away that book somehow….anyway, so we have done appetizers, I will do a drink, and I think I have dessert covered. I am in need of a main. Here is the site:

Ingredients:
3/4 cup flour
3/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
3/4 cup milk (I used 1%)
1 egg, lightly beaten
4 oz. mozzarella cheese, shredded (about 1 cup) (I used Monterey Jack)
4 oz. pepperoni, diced (about 1 cup) (I used turkey pepperoni)
1/2 cup pizza sauce (homemade or store-bought)
2 Tbsp. fresh basil, finely diced. (didn’t use any but will next time!)

Method:
1.Preheat oven to 375o. Grease a 24-cup mini muffin pan.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and oregano; whisk in the milk and egg. Stir in the mozzarella and pepperoni; let stand for 10 minutes.

3. Stir the batter and divide among the mini-muffin cups. Bake until puffed and golden, 20 to 25 minutes.

4. Warm the pizza sauce, then stir in 1 tablespoon basil. Sprinkle the puffs with the remaining 1 tablespoon basil. Serve the puffs with the pizza sauce for dipping.

Notes:

YUMMMMM. This is such a fun little finger food. I added a little more cheese and pepperoni because I wanted it to be cheesier and meatier. Also, definitely add some salt. I don’t know if any of you taste batter before you bake, but this needed it. The sauce was pretty good with basil (mine wasn’t fresh though, but hey still came out fine). This is something that I will make again with my niece and nephew. I know they will really like it just because they like bite size stuff. Anyway, not much to say about it except to make it! Happy nom noms!
