There is much joy when I get to cross stuff off a to-do list. Sometimes I get so excited, I put two lines through the item. Oh, yes I do! Sometimes I even write things on a list that I’ve already accomplished, just so I can have the satisfaction of crossing it off. Can you imagine?!
There is also much joy when I try a recipe I’ve had printed out, and thus removing it from my ever-growing stack. Pinterest is not helping this situation. With everything I’ve book marked in the last week, my folder will never get smaller. Ever. This is very troubling.
Pinterest is ruining my life! (Nah, I love it. A little too much.)
And I love these. One of the first items I noticed from my friend Sherrill. Although I altered them. Added salami, omitted the salt, made them bite size.
Let them cool slightly so they don’t burn your tongue, but not too long…you want the cheese to still be gooey.
Baked Salami Mozzarella Bites
Makes 32 (or you can make as many as you want!)
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
• 8 pieces of string cheese cut in half, lengthwise, and then cut in half again, lengthwise
• 32 won ton wrappers
• 32 salami rounds
• olive oil
• Pizza, marinara, or spaghetti sauce for serving
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a baking with a silpat matte or foil coated with cooking spray.
Place a piece of salami near the bottom corner of one won ton wrapper, then lay a piece of string cheese on top of that. Wrap tightly like a burrito, by folding the bottom corner over cheese, rolling one turn, folding sides in, and continue to roll. Moisten remaining corner with water to seal.
Place all the rolled wrappers on the baking sheet and brush lightly with olive oil.
Bake for 15 minutes. Turn and bake for another 5 minutes. Let cool slightly. Serve with dipping sauce of your choosing.
