Stuffed Pizza Puffs


Stuffed Pizza Puffs

This past weekend, iconic football games lured my guys to the TV for more hooping and hollering than I have heard in a long time.

That says a LOT considering I sit through more noise than any one mom’s poor ear drums should have to put up with from all my teen guys. I love being a boys (and girl) mom like crazy, but whew, it’s tiring.

So while they sat making all their noise, I decided to play around with some of our favorite Kraft shredded cheeses and what began as an appetizer, turned into the perfect creative football meal.

Initially prepared in a mini muffin tins, these Stuffed Pizza Puffs were so good that when our 275 pound football player downed five in one bite, I decided that tiny appetizers = win, but full sized Stuffed Pizza Puffs are a necessity.

For company, I will stick to the smaller size, but these will definitely be a recipe that I make for quick lunches on the go. They are the perfect “hand sized” meal.

I’ll never forget when our local Target added their grocery section. I was elated and then they took it one step further by adding coupons. Now they were speaking my love language.

With holiday baking and cooking season in full gear, Kraft wants to not only help us with quick and easy meal ideas, but also desires that we keep more dollars in our pocket. They are offering tons of coupons on many of my favorite products. Yes, save up to $20 on participating Kraft products, only at Target. Love that! You should see fridge and freezer. I am stocked and ready to go.

Now, you will definitely want to remember this yummy Stuffed Pizza Puff recipe. Everyone in my family raved about them. They are so versatile, depending on what kind of pizza toppings you like. Take your favorite toppings and just “stuff” them in that batter. Remember, we are the “more meat, the better” kind of family, so ours were chock full, but you can easily cut the meat in half and add extra veggies or just go for a more vegetarian approach, but then they are more like my Egg and Cheese Puffs. ;)

From shopping for gifts to planning family dinners, it’s hard to keep up with all your holiday to-do’s. This year, Kraft is helping out with great weeknight meals and entertaining ideas to make the season a little bit easier. Plus, Kraft is offering up to $20 in coupons, redeemable exclusively at Target, to make food shopping easier and to help you have a happy holiday season.

  1. These look delicious! I think I could easily make these the main dish of a casual family dinner and then add a big salad and maybe some sliced fruit. Yummy!


    Jen Reply:

    Yes, you definitely could because that’s exactly what I did when I switched from the mini to the regular sized ones. :)


  2. Thanks for sharing what I call “real” recipes. Oftentimes I hear of great recipes, but they start with some sort of pre-packaged mix. We live overseas and those little pre-packaged mixes just aren’t available (or are WAY overpriced!). So, I’m happy to find a relatively simple, yet hearty snack or meal using ingredients in my pantry!
