One of the hardest things for me is Mom lunches. I love to cook but cooking for one person is just not the same. It is hard finding something to make for myself beyond a sandwich. If I were cooking for even two people it would make me want to actually prepare something. Instead I would be happy skipping from breakfast to dinner if my body would let me. If we have no left overs I often search the fridge and eat an assortment of foods. Some days I have a sandwich or a salad, other days its crackers and cheese, fruit and yogurt, you get the idea.
I’m sure many of you with children at home run into the same thing. As a solution to mac and cheese or a Pb&j again give these mini pizza bites a try. One child wants ham the other wants pepperoni? Not a problem. Served on bagels, they are the perfect personal pizza. I used mini bagels that I got at my local Smiths. You can use regular size bagels as well. Perfect for little mouths, easy to customize, and fun to make these pizza bites will be a welcome lunch addition.
