One 4 the kidz- Oven baked mozzarella bites

Cheese. You’d be crazy not to love it! my son and I love the stuff. Oozey and grilled, grated and sliced. Mozzarella is one of those cheeses that I tend to add to pizza’s and pasta dishes.

I wanted to use it this time as a sort of side or nibble. Again, as well as being a fan of cheese I occasionally dabble in fried foods too (ugh fried cheese) BUT if I can opt for a healthier baked option, thats the direction ill go in to be honest. Especially when it comes to little tummies.

This recipe is super easy (and cheap) just a little dredging here and there and you let the oven do the rest!

Gooey melted cheese with a crispy crunchy coating, your kids will go wild for this (as will you!)
