Creamy Cheesy Veggie Puffs & a giveaway!

My youngest daughter and I made these for lunch one day.  They’re quick to make and a scrumptious way to eat veggies.

They’re out of this world.  No really, they are.  See the martian below.

Isn’t it cute?  And surprisingly tasty for an extraterrestrial.

I will be making these again sometime.  The cheese along with the biscuit dough reminded me of a warm version of veggie pizza.  Only puff shaped.

The short cut ingredient in this recipe is Birds Eye Steamfresh veggies.  They cook in their own bag in the microwave.  No chopping or extra dish washing required.  This makes it perfect for cooking with kids.

The recipe isn’t mine, but I did alter it from the original.  Birds Eye sent me the recipe to try, complete with martian decorating ideas.  If you’d like to try some of their other easy recipes visit for kid-friendly recipe ideas featuring Birds Eye Steamfresh® products.
