    We made this for lunch today using homemade spaghetti sauce with ground beef and sausage. This is similar to frozen bagel bites but is soooooo much yummier! And yes, the two of us gobbled it up fast! Definitely having again when the kids come over. Yummy!

    This is what we ate for lunch. I made fresh marinara sauce this morning : recipe#300960 This is very good and will do it again when we have friends over. Thanks Lainey. Made for 123 hit wonders.

    LOVED this, will add to my favorites for you. Quick, easy, and delicious - what more could you want. Thanks Lainey for a real winner. I made this for the orphaned chef tag and so glad I did.

    Warning: do not make these when you are alone! And if you do, do not eat these when you are alone! That was my first mistake, and my second! Sushiman is off in England for the week and I thought this would be a quick and easy supper for me and the one Dornette at home this week. I could be like Cher in Mermaids and we would have appetizers for supper! Wrong choice! First, the Dornette decided to go hang out with her friends last night. So it was just me and the dogs, and they didn't get any. Yes, I went through the whole thing myself! Where's that blushing smiley when you need it? I used a whole baguette, little baby mozzarella balls cut in half, and some of my homemade pasta sauce that I had in the freezer. Granted, it did take me most of the evening to get through these, and my only comfort with this pig-out is that I washed it down with Diet Coke. That cancels out the calories, right?
