Bacon and Vegetable Bites

/, Lunchbox/Bacon and Vegetable Bites

Oh goodness these are delicious! I love the hidden veggies in these too. You can vary what vegetables you use. I use whatever is in the fridge. They taste just as good without bacon too for a vegetarian option.

They can be frozen after baking and thawed. These are great warm or cold for kiddies lunchboxes.

    These were really easy and very yummy! I have a sick 2 1/2 year old and a teething 9 month old at the moment so they made a quick snack! Thank you!
