It’s been a long day. After dropping my daughter off to school, I had to swing by the store for baking powder, and ended up with a few more things while I was there, naturally. Then I ran home to eat breakfast before heading off to work. After lunch it was straight into the kitchen.
We’re having a little pre Thanksgiving break potluck with the girls I work with for lunch tomorrow. I was debating between these and sweet potato bread, but one of the girls lit up at the sound of these when I mentioned them, so that’s what I went with. And they pair so well with my Butternut Squash Sausage Soup that I decided to make up a batch of that to take in as well. I finished both of those in time to get my daughter from one after school activity to another, (did I mention Mondays are crazy?!,) and then back into the kitchen for Thanksgiving baking. Have to make that pumpkin bread for my mom, and I made her a surprise this year too. Banana cranberry bread with dark chocolate chips. She loves cranberries and dark chocolate. 🙂
Anywho, these little guys would make a fun addition to a Thanksgiving appetizer tray, and are a great item to bring along for a potluck in general. I made them for New Years last year to take to a friend’s party. You can also double the recipe to make a full batch of 12 regular size muffins or a loaf of bread.
And the best thing about these? One bowl. Everything gets mixed together all at once. And since they’re so small they don’t take long to bake either. You can have these sweet cheesy little bites done start to finish in 30 minutes. Can’t ask for more than that. 🙂
