The perfect recipe for lunch or dinner - your family will thank you for these cheesy Pizza Buns!
It's time again for Secret Recipe Club reveal day for my group, Group C! What is Secret Recipe Club? It's a bunch of food bloggers separated into three groups that post once a month on a designated Monday. Each month, we are paired with another foodie from our group secretly (hence the name). We then pick a recipe (or two or more) from that blog and make it. On our reveal day, we reveal whose blog we had and what recipe(s) we chose all at the same time. It's like a Secret Santa every month, but with food and blogs! It's a great deal of fun :)
This month I had the pleasure of being assigned to Our Eating Habits run by Jamie. Jamie is a homeschooling mom of three who loves Christmas and Disney (can't say I blame her there! Two of my favorite things) plus she also has an epic mug collection to enjoy her morning coffee in. Although I've had to switch to decaf, my mug collection is what I would call epic too. It's honestly a problem for me to refrain from picking up new mugs - my coffee "hutch" doesn't have any room left in it.
I had absolutely no problem finding a recipe I wanted to make from Jamie's blog and I had actually put 4 or 5 on my meal plan for the month of June. So let me just share what made the list! There is the Saucy Pepper Steak which is a stir fry, Italian Meatball Heroes are actually our planned dinner for tonight, and I am always saving new chocolate chip cookie recipes, like this Biscoff Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe. Then there are these yummy Shepherd's Pie Loaded Baked Potatoes, Biscoff Muffins, and Nestle Delightfull Soft Peanut Butter Cookies. Honestly, I was really on a Biscoff kick...here's a third recipe: Biscoff Granola Bars. I know it isn't time for pumpkin yet, but I still saved this Double Pumpkin Poke Cake. I need to make this Butterscotch Swirl Cake and the Raspberry Dutch Baby.
Ultimately, I went with the Pizza Buns - although coincidentally I put her Mozzarella Caprese Omelets on my meal plan and was pleasantly surprised when I opened it up on my tablet to make it. That recipe will be posted at some point, but as I've said, today is all about the Pizza Buns. I immediately was drawn to them because it reminded me of something my elementary school served up for school lunch every once in a while. It was easy to make and a huge hit with the whole family! Just look at all that ooey gooey cheese! YES!
