Do you remember Bagel Bites?
(I know they still make them, but I don’t see them around as much as I used to.)
How about this famous commercial?
I’m pretty sure that jingle was stuck in everyone’s head from 1996-1999. (and will be stuck in your head for the remainder of the day – sorry!)
Anyway, today’s lunch sort of reminded me of bagel bites. Only the non-frozen, baguette form. Let’s call them “baguette bites” 😉
There really wasn’t much to it. I just sliced the baguette in thick rounds and topped the rounds with marinara sauce, cheese and basil. The mini pizzas were toasted under the broiler for a few minutes and served hot.
You could have fun with different variations by adding what ever toppings you like, or they’re fun to just have plain. It’s a quick and easy meal (seriously – 5 minutes TOPS!) that both kids and adults will enjoy.
I also had some cucumber slices on the side with hummus.
And an apple sauce for dessert.
Lunchtime made easy. 🙂
What was your favorite after school snack as a kid?
I should probably feel more ashamed to admit that I had a Little Debbie almost everyday after school (the Zebra Cakes were soooo good!).
