“I was looking for something a little different for lunch box snacks and came across this recipe in a magazine a few years ago. They can be served hot or cold and keep for up to 3 days in the fridge. DD loves to take these to school or as a snack to microwave at dancing. Sometime's I pop a cherry tomato in, or chopped spring onions or cheese on top which is also nice. The options are endless!!! Another idea a friend had, was to use minature muffin pans and she made these for appetiser's at her party !!!”
