I don’t know about you, but at our home, we have week’s that it is go, go go. As much as we try not to overlap sports, it never fails — at some point in the year, we have two sports simultaneously. And of course that means running from one field to the other. Since I am not a fan of stopping at a drive-thru, these little Broccoli Ricotta Cheese Puffs are the perfect solution.

Don’t tell anyone, but I think the secret here is actually mashing up the broccoli so fine that it blends into the deliciousness of the cheeses. Everyone, even the picky ones, love the flavor in these little bites. The best part about it, these Broccoli Ricotta Cheese Puffs are good right out of the oven or slightly warm. I tend to make a double batch and pop them in the microwave to warm them upp.

Trust me, when you are running from field to field, these are perfect little bites in the car. They don’t even make a mess. If by chance we are home for long enough, they are amazing along side of a great big garden salad

This, a salad, and wine would be a perfect meal as far as I’m concerned.
