Annoying Habits

We just finished dinner and I'm snuggled up in my favorite chair with the laptop on my...well, lap. I am listening to Family Guy reruns in the background and waiting for 9pm to strike so I can meet my friend at the bookstore for coffee and chit chat. Sounds ideal huh? Minus the obnoxious cartoon in the background. ha!

You see, Mr. H will take the remote from me, change the channel and put it on something uber annoying. He'll watch it for about 15 minutes then head into the office to full around on the computer or he'll go to the garage to tinker and he leaves the remote on the couch across the room! That drives me batty. He does this ALL the time. Usually I jut ignore it because I'm reading blogs and it's just background noise, but I can't stand Family Guy's rude humor. Or a show about garage makeovers, or tow trucks or the Speed channel, or Vh-1's One Hit Wonders (for the umpteenth time).

My husband has horrible taste in television. It's not all bad but I've been subjected to some awful TV. And as I type this I'm watching Van Wilder's something or another. And the remote? Across the room on the couch far, far away from me (really it's only a few feet away from me but I'm lazy so it feels like miles). But despite this annoying habit, I love my husband and I vowed "for better or worse". And so I made him these pepperoni pizza puffs. They're like bite size pizzas baked into muffin pan. We had them for dinner with a side salad but I'd recommend them for appetizers too. They're kind of like pizza but puffy and a little like a quiche but loaded with pizza flavor. Feel free to make them with your favorite toppings.

Pepperoni Pizza Puffs adapted from Everyday with Rachael Ray and Cassie Craves

  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • pinch of salt (my addition, optional)
  • pinch of red pepper flakes (my addition, optional)
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup cubed pepperoni
  • 1/2 cup store-bought pizza sauce

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 24-cup mini-muffin pan. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, Italian seasoning, salt and red pepper flakes (if using) ; whisk in the milk and egg. Stir in the mozzarella, Parmesan and pepperoni; let stand for 10 minutes.

2. Stir the batter and divide among the mini-muffin cups. Bake until puffed and golden, 20 to 25 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, microwave the pizza sauce until warmed through. Serve the puffs with the pizza sauce for dipping.

NOTE: All my batter did not fit into the 24-mini muffin pan. So I made a full size muffin with the leftover batter. Some pans are larger than others so you may not have have an issue.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

  1. Aw, these little pizza puffs are so cute and look delicious! And bless you for being so forgiving of bad TV :)

  2. What an awesome idea. My kids would love these. Thanks!

    I keep the remote control guarded by my side..lol If my husband wants to watch something, he has to return the remote to me when he is done..lol That sounds so mean, but he used to do the same thing all the time, and his choice of shows quite poor too.

    I agree Family Guy is awful. My
    16-year-old loves it. It is a very rude and obnoxious show.

  3. These sound delicious and they are super cute! I like mini foods :)

    thats funny on the bad tv, except I subject my boyfriend to many ridiculous shows like the bachelor so I cant really complain about his choice in tv...

    haaha

  4. OK, those look delicious!! I am a vegetarian, but I bet they would be amazing with the meat-free "pepperoni" as well!!! :) And PS. I totally agree with you on Family Guy. Terrible, terrible TV! haha!

  5. You need to purchase a second remote. Keep it near your favorite chair. When you get up, shove it in the cushions.

    ReplyDelete
  6. WOW! that looks yummy!!!! I'm totally making them

    ReplyDelete
  7. I'd like to chime and mention annoying things my husband does, but he keeps fixing my laptop, so I guess that buys him a lot of leniency :) These little pizza puffs are da bomb!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Oh wow! I'm sitting here reading your blog right now while watching 'Memphis Beat' because my hubby left the remote in the chair across the room to go to bed (Not that the show is that bad...just not my choice.) He does it all the time! I think he has went to the bathroom, and then 30 min. later realize he's sawing logs :) Thanks so much for your yummy recipes! I was turned on to your site via Coupon Goddess. Such talent you have!

  9. I could never make something that I know comes from Rachel Ray hahaha. They do look quite good, though! I love your shots of the ingredients.

    You know when you're able to aguantar or deal with your partner's bad habits, that is true love.

  10. If you cooked me pepperoni pizza puffs... I'd give you complete control of the remote! they look delicious!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Soounds like a great treat! Perfect appy! I wish we lived closer so we could meet for coffee and chit chat.

  12. Hey, Monica! I always visit your blog, but never comment.
    Well, I love your recipes and pics. I created a delicious recipe with your yummilicious Coca-Cola cake and posted in my blog. If you can see, it's just to go to the Chocorango (in English).
    But I already posted in the Portuguese Chocorango a time ago (http://chocorango.blogspot.com/2010/06/vaca-preta-do-alasca.html).
    I really enjoyed the cake, we really can taste the Coca-Cola flavor!

    Cheers,

  13. Yum ..those little pizzas look good...this post reminded me of what my husband does continually...he unplugs the laptop to use it and NEVER plugs it back in..how hard is it??? 99% of the time I don't say anything but everyonce in a while....woooo..

    ReplyDelete
  14. Well my husband has been perfect the past few months. Has done nothing irritating. But then for the past few months he has been in Saudi Arabia! Wonder if there would be good just room temperature?

    ReplyDelete
  15. It's a husband thing..my husband has a habit of turning the tv to something nobody else wants to watch and then proceeds to fall asleep in his chair, remote in hand. *sigh

    These pizza puffs look great! My kids would love them..much better than those darn frozen pizza rolls they insist on eating.

    ReplyDelete
  16. these are something i will not make. noooooo. i would eat them all in one sitting. i love my pepperoni and cheese and dip so much. they look so good though.

    ReplyDelete
  17. These look awesome! Perfect for movie night!


    And I feel ya about the whole bad TV thing. My boyfriend also loves Family Guy (among other awful shows) and I cannot stand that show.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Ha! My honey is a pain in the butt about the TV, too! I don't watch TV but will read in bed while he watches it. Sounds fine, right? NOOOO, he's a flicker, which means every time he changes the channel the volume either blares or gets low, then blares and gets low. How in the heck am I supposed to read like that? :)

    I don't know if my honey would eat those, he's tries to stay away from carbs but my "bebe" kids sure would! I'm thinking there would be some serious bartering going on over them.
    ~ingrid


    Btw, Is that pizza sauce you used good? The word spicy caught my eye! Love spicy. :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh I am with you ALL THE WAY. I hate Family Guy and cant believe it is on at an hour when children can be exposed to it. Out tv barely leaves Public Television because of a lot of smut that is on regular tv.

    As much as I love my husband he truly can drive me crazy with his really bad table manners, amongst other things.

    ReplyDelete
  20. You and I are married to the same man... Except for that mine is HISTORY obsessed! I tell him all the time that it's HISTORY; therefore, it is in the PAST and just to get him really good, I always tell him I can tell him what happens. After all, history is in the past! Ha ha

    Your pizza puffs look amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  21. I like Family Guy. What I can't stand that my husband watches is all these "Man Soaps." Like Star Trek and Stargate. Bleh.

    I do plan on making this recipe. Even has a cute name.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Monica they look delicious. My husband has annoying habits too, but it's like you said "for better or for worse!"

    ReplyDelete
  23. Sometimes it seems as though the remote is actually part of a man's hand..........hmmmm. bet I could get control of the remote if I made these though. Wish i could just pluck one off the plate!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I know what you mean its so annoying when someone starts watching a tv prog you're not interested in but put up with and then they walk out and leave it on grr.

    These pizza bites look fab. I love finger food and dipping things into sauces. Yummy

    ReplyDelete
  25. These look yummy! I made a similar recipe years ago. I know my hubby would inhale these, then ask "where's dinner?".

    My husband only watches three things on tv: Phillies games, Maury, and Cheaters. He watches the local news, too. I'm starting to hate baseball because there are so many games! Love my husband, though.

    ReplyDelete
  26. These look so yummy! I love pizza! You can't get better than this! We don't really watch TV so I don't have this problem but The Hubble likes to turn the music on his laptop super loud while we are having computer time. I always have to ask him to turn it down. Annoying!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Ugh, I feel your pain! Those pizza puffs look delish too, I'll have to try those.

    On another note, your blog is just beautiful. It's so clean, pictures are so visually appealing, I honestly sometimes just click so I can admire it. I thought you needed to know that!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I am fairly certain that if I make these for my son, he will refuse everything else I cook.

    ReplyDelete
  29. How annoying but I'm glad you love him and made these puffs and posted the recipe!! I have a confession to make. My husband watches almost no t.v. (soccer being the exception) and I get annoyed with him for not watching more with me. Maybe I'll go make him these pizza puffs and tell him they can only be eaten in front of the t.v.

    Best,
    Bonnie

  30. Made them today for lunch. They were terrific! Thanks for the easy and super delicious recipe.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Can''t wait to try these out on visiting GRANDkids! I agree with you about Family Guy...so irritating!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Volumes could be written about men and their remotes!

    Those pizza bites sounds incredible! Sans sauce they'd make pretty good travel food. Thanks for the idea.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I just don't get guys sometimes (including my husband) and their crazy sense of what is funny - glad I am a gal!
    The kids and I make something similar to these - minus the pepperoni...they don't know what they aremissing - your top photo looks like a magazine cover!

  34. Hey- just found your blog and love it! do I have to use whole milk, or can I just use my regular 1%?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hi Cari,

    I used 2% milk and it was fine. I'm sure you could use 1% as well.
    Thanks for stopping by!

  37. I made these last week for my son who is crazy about pizza! They were a HUGE hit with all of us. I'm making them again this weekend for a family get-together. :)

  39. Ooohhh. Love the idea of pizza in mini muffin form. What a great appetizer!

    I don't watch a lot of tv, so I don't have issues with Jim and the remote. And in our house, it's Sam who likes to keep a close eye on the remote anyway. haha He drives us all crazy!

    ReplyDelete
  40. I just had to tell you that I made these for my family recently and everyone loved them. I've got some picky eaters, and it's rare to find a recipe everyone gobbles up. These were a huge hit! Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I have made these several times, love them! Kids love them! I like the fact that we get a pizza treat that is healthier than Pizza Rolls. I also love the Archer Farms...my fave is there roasted pepper.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I just found these searching for something to make for me and the boys for dinner and I had almost everything in the house. They are amazing I made them with chunks of left over chicken. They were super easy and tasty, thinking about making another batch before I turn the oven off.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Can you use any type of milk? I normally buy 2% and try to stay away from whole or Vit D.

    ReplyDelete
  44. These sounds great, my hubby would love these on Sunday for football!! Or any day really haha. Oh and thats great about the milk I was going to ask that but Jamie beat me too it!! Thanks for sharing!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Hi Monica - I made these and we loved them. I shared them with our card club friend and they also found them to be very tasty. Thanks so much.

    I did post about them on www.ugogrrl.com and gave you credit! :)

  46. Hi Monica,

    The Pepperoni Pizza Puffs look deelisshh! If I'm using a normal muffin pan, how long should I bake them for?

    Thanks!

    Suz

    ReplyDelete
  47. Hi Suz- I only baked one full size muffin because I had a little leftover batter, but I don't remember how long it baked for. I do know that one muffin will cook in less time than a full batch so I hesitate to give you a number and have it be wrong. I would start checking them at the 20-25 minute mark, then start checking them every 3 minutes after that. Sorry I can't be more specific, but I hope you like them!

  48. These are outstanding. I minced a few mushrooms then fried them in butter w/ a bit of garlic salt, let them cool and added them to the batter. My husband absolutely adored them and asked me to make them again next week.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I used to make something similar with ham and cheese - Ham Puffs - but I am so excited to try these, they are in the oven now, my son and I baked them after finding your blog (from Pinterest)
    Love this recipe - love your blog and all your other mouth watering (trust me on this) recipes!!
    Blessings to you!

  58. Yum!

    I don't remember how I got to your blog last week. Someone had to have put a link in their blog. This recipe looked good, so I stole it. I made it a bit more Weight Watcher friendly and just took them out of the oven. I really enjoyed them! They were crispy on the outside and quite yummy.

    I wanted to share the recipe and I always want to give credit and it drove me bonkers that I couldn't find where I got it. I promised myself last time this happened that from now on I would put the name of the blog with the recipe!

    I went through all my blogs and typed 'pizza puffs' in the search. No joy. I googled pizza puffs...too many hits. I finally thought Aha!!! I will type the whole last paragraph into google...about not fitting into the mini pan. And voila! Yours popped right up. Whew!

    Anyway, looks like a ton of my blogger friends stole your recipe this week too!

    Thank you so much for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Do you think your could freeze these and just reheat later? They look DELISH!

    ReplyDelete
  60. 3xMom- I'm pretty sure you could freeze them and just reheat them. I would suggest undertaking them by a minute or two just so that when you reheat them they don't dry out or get overdone.

    Let me know how it turns out if you try it!

    Monica

  61. I would love to make these for my son's birthday party in the fall. Great idea!

    ReplyDelete
  62. hey!
    i attempted these this am. Mine only made enough for 16 mini ones!
    Perhaps i will try doubling the recipie next time and make them in bigger ones?

    ReplyDelete
  63. Hi Monica! I'm a new follower to you blog. I found it via Pinterest. I made these Pizza Puffs and my family and I adored them! So much so that I decided to share them on my blog. I linked you up on my post so I hope my readers will come check out all your other goodies. Next on my list to make is your Banana Pudding Pie...oh my looks SO good! Love you blog and looking forward to exploring it even more :)

  65. This look SO yummy! Thinking about making them for my son's Bday at the end of the month.
    I have a question though, can you use 2% milk instead of whole milk? (found this on pintrest)

    ReplyDelete
  66. I saw these on pinterest and they look irresistible. If I had some mozzarella I'd make them right now. Then I got sucked in looking at all your fabulous baked goods. I may have to bake that zucchini cake too.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Melissa- Yes, I'm sure any kind of milk (whole, 2%, lowfat, skim, and even evaporated milk) would work. Enjoy!

    ReplyDelete
  68. i just wondering if anyone knows if you can make and then freeze them by chance .

    ReplyDelete
  69. What? Pizza muffins? Can't wait to sink my teeth in these.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I'm wondering if anyone has made these and had left-overs? I'd like to make a batch to use for lunches. My husband is pretty picky about left overs but he loves pizza so I'm thinking maybe it could work? Do you microwave them to reheat? Any suggestions would be appreciated!!

    ReplyDelete
  71. IS this something that could be baked and then frozen for a later meal? I'm in a freezer meal exchange group and am always looking for new family friendly recipes that freeze well! I'd love suggestions!

    sarahgahlin@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  72. Oh yum ... those will be great for my son's lunchbox. Who mentioned leftovers? I seriously doubt it.

    AND ... my husband comes in from the garage to change the channel and then leaves. Men, they are an odd species.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Thank you for the recipe! I made them for a party this weekend and they were a big hit.

    Super yummy! Thanks again.

  75. These look great! I am trying to make some new things for my 2 year old to take in her lunch to day school. She is a peanut butter girl and her class is peanut free due to another child's allergy. My question is, do these freeze well? Thanks for sharing!!

    ReplyDelete
  76. Ok, here's what you do, buy a universal remote control, and always keep it with your laptop. And let the channel changing battle begin!

  77. These pizza rolls sound perfect for my event. I need to slightly curb the appetite of 8 High school Homecoming attendees enough to get them through pictures and off to dinner. Thank you for sharing

    ReplyDelete
  78. Tried this recipe before, but they were a little too plain for me. I added double Italian seasoning and salt (I like a lot of flavor), I added some pepper jack cheese instead of Parmesan & used a mozzarella mix (Italian mixed bag from the grocery store). I also chopped up chives from the garden & sprinkled on top. Since I don't own a mini muffin pan, I'm using a pop-over pan (looks like a normal sized muffin pan) and a corn bread cast iron pan (looks like mini pizza slices). I'm also cooking for 30 minutes since the "puffs" will be larger. 15 minutes left, we'll see how good my take on this recipe is!

    ReplyDelete
  79. This were super yummy. I used ham and tex mex cheese blend as that is what I had in the house. My daughter, who is a year, ate 3! I blogged about them on my blog. http://tish-gettingtogoal.blogspot.com/2011/09/pizza-bites.html Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  80. Hi there! These look so cute and am wanting to try them out for a bbq on the weekend - a quick question (this might be really dumb) but what is Italian Seasoning?? Thanks!

  88. I'm going to try my hand at making these gluten free.

    And I have officially banned all things Family Guy from being played in our house - including the Star Wars episode. It's just a disgusting stupid show. I vowed to smash the screen if it's ever on :-p

    ReplyDelete
  89. I tried these today for game day and my honey absolutely loved them! Thanks for this adaptation of the recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  90. I made these tonight, but with italian sausage crumbles instead of pepperoni. I think I used too much italian seasoning and I think I'll add some garlic powder next time.

    ReplyDelete
  91. I just made these and they were YUMMY! I used mini pepperonis so I didnt have to cut any up.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Oh these sound delicious! Just stumbled onto your blog and so glad I did. Your recipe/food photos are gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  93. MEN NEVER OUTGROW THE BURP FART HUMOR. With that said, having a husband and three sons, I am subjected to at least ten burps or farts or episodes of Family guy (not much difference in the three if you ask me) daily. Bless all women who love the men in their lives enough NOT to go crazy daily.
    The pizza puffs are fab! I made them once last week and have had requests three times since (including from the neighbors kids, who ate some leftovers while visiting). I added some Italian sausage and a bit extra pepperoni. I also made a double recipe to make bigger muffins (like I said THREE sons). Was delish.. found you by the way on Pinterest!

    ReplyDelete
  94. I just made these... They were amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  95. I made these NYE and they were a HIT. I used mini pepperonis instead of chopping reg ones. Since I made 2 batches I got an extra 12 mini muffins out of it! Very easy to make - will make again.

    ReplyDelete
  96. I made these tonight, my kids loved them and helped make them!

    ReplyDelete
  97. This look super yummy! Found your blog on Pinterest. Thanks for another recipe I am sure will expand my son's repetiore which does not include tomato sauce.

    Hoping these go well for my son's lunches if there are any leftovers.

    BTW the same remote/Family Guy situation exists in this house. Gaaa, dipise that show. My DH's other lovely habit is turn a show on watch for 5-6mins (enough time to get interested) then change channel for no reason.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Came over from Pinterest, Wanting to see if anyone has commented about adapting these to Gluten Free. Didn't see anything in the comments so I'm going to give it a whirl. Trying to decide whether to use GF Bisquick or GF flour...I'll let you know how they turn out!

    ReplyDelete
  99. hi there. i found your recipe on Pinterest and made them for a NYE party. They were a huge hit!! :) I share a link to your recipe on my blog - http://mindingmynest.com/2012/01/52-weeks-of-pinspiration-week-1-pepperoni-pizza-puffs/

  102. These have become a family favorite in our home. I usually make 2 batches and add sliced black olives to one batch. yummy!

  103. As a PP said, these have also become a family favorite in our home! I make them at least once a month since I found your recipe back in June 2011!
    I love them soooo much! Thank you for your amazing brain to conjur up this ridiculously awesome and perfect meal!

  104. I'm from Denmark, Europe, and the remote-issue reminds me of my own husband. :-)
    I think these muffins will be great in my kids lunch-boxes.

  107. i made these for my super bowel party and the only thing i messed up on was not TRIPLING the batch they were a big hit everyone LOVED THEM !! thanks !!

    ReplyDelete
  108. Just wondering... Does it matter whether I use SR flour or AP flour (the recipe didn't specify)? If I use SR flour do I still need to use the baking powder? Thanks! -♥-

    ReplyDelete
  109. Katy- The recipe calls for all-purpose flour. That's usually all I use unless the recipe states otherwise. FOr this recipe I would not use self rising flour just because I don't know how much they would puff in the oven. WHen you add the amounts shown for the AP flour and th ebaking soda then you at least know they'll be perfect every time.

    Hope they turn out well for you. I just made them again last week with crumbled sausage and garlic and they were even better than the pepperoni version!

  110. I just made these with my 6 years old son, he mainly made them, and they were delicious. We substituted the peperoni for ham as we didn't have any. I also have a French garlic sausage and will try to make them with this as I am sure it would taste as good if not better. Found your website while browsing on Pinterest. Love your page and added it to my Favourites. Keep the good work. Regards Mayna from UK

  111. These are good! They're perfect to take to work for me to snack on.

    I added fried bacon/onions. They taste so good. Next time I want to try ham and pineapple since I love Hawaiian pizza.

  112. Found you via pinterest. Just made these for my twin toddlers (and myself) for lunch. They are delicious and the perfect size for the kids to pick up! When I told my husband I made them, he asked if I could make another batch tonight so he could try them too! Like another commenter, I used the mini pepperonis, which worked well. Also used cheddar cheese since that's what I had on hand. Thanks for the recipe! I'll definitely be checking out your recipe index for more goodies. :)

  121. Wow, these look gorgeous! I'm going to try them at the weekend.

    There's only one thing MORE annoying than a man leaving the room after he's changed the channel.... and that's a man (aka my husband) putting the football (sorry US Soccer) on the telly and then proceeding to fall asleep infront of the telly! If you dare try to suggest changing the channel he insists he's still watching it! I don't get how you can watch it when your eyes are closed, you're snoring and there's a drool puddle on your shirt??? Arrrrgh!

  122. Came home from work today and my HUSBAND had made these! He hacked my Pinterest page to surprise me with a recipe! They were delicious and I plan to make them for a party we're going to next weekend. Thanks so much!

  123. I made these tonight using Almond Meal. They turned out great. Thanks for the easy recipe. I found you on Pinterest. :)

  124. I made these pizza bites this weekend for my manfriend's surprise birthday dinner... with some adjustments. I made them vegetarian with sauteed baby bella mushrooms/onion/orange bell pepper, and I made my own dipping sauce. SO delicious. I know you could also subsitute some whole wheat flour to make them a little healthier. Very easy. Very tasty. Love this recipe!

  125. I made some of these and they were AMAZING! They were quick and easy, as well. Would be a great party food!

  126. perfect, thex look perfect and they are perfect for the party I am giving this weekend...

  127. Made these with veggies and turkey pepperoni! We used garlic butter alongside the pizza sauce! Big hit!

    ReplyDelete
  128. Sometimes I don't read a recipe and directions all the way through :( but this time it worked out! I made the batter for these and then merrily dumped the pizza sauce in as well! Baked them anyway, and oh my, they were delicious.

    ReplyDelete
  129. My mother used to make home-made pizza, and the sauce we used is just 1 can of tomato paste ixed with 1/2 cup of water and add oregano, garlic or other spices o yur choice.

  130. I cannot wait to try these!!!! I am going to make them Gluten Free though as my 14 month old has Celiac Disease and I have an intolerance... You ROCKKKKKKKK Thanks so much!

  131. How fun is this? These look perfect for a dinner on the run, or sack lunches. I bet I could adapt them to be more breakfast-ish, too! Awesome post!

  132. Hi Monica,

    I just made the pizza puffs for a party I'm having tonight. Just ate the first one and they're delicious! Can't wait for my guests to try them :) Thank you very much for this post.

  135. It's absolutely delicious!!!
    Thanks

  136. Wow, didn't realize so many people hated family guy.. i personally think it's hilarious.. although i don't have children, so that's a different story, LOL.

    This sounds soo good, and living with 2 boys sounds like it would go over well!! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  137. Did u buy the pepperoni cubed?

    ReplyDelete
  138. These look absolutely DELICIOUS and would be gobbled up as soon as they popped out of the oven if I made them for my husband! Great for football season :)

    P.S. My husband also has bad taste in TV- I mean, why wouldn't he want to watch Real Housewives or Grey's Anatomy with me?! One of our favorite shows to watch together is Modern Family!

    ReplyDelete
  139. Have you tried making these ahead of time and reheating them the day of a party? If so, how did that work out? Thanks in advance for any tips!!!

    ReplyDelete
  140. i tried this recipe. i felt the 1 tablespoon of Italian seasoning was too overpowering. i might try this again but with less Italian seasoning.

    ReplyDelete
  141. Tried this over the weekend and it didn't work for me at all. The bottoms were completely burned! I followed the directions exactly but they were simply inedible. About 15 minutes in they started smoking and smelled terrible.

    ReplyDelete
  142. I made this tonight and they are so delicious! I did trade the whole milk for skim (that's all I had in my fridge!!) and did sausage instead of pepperoni. They turned out great! Thanks for the recipe!

    ReplyDelete
  143. These are so good!

    To those who were asking about gluten-free, I've made these with both my regular rice flour mix, and various flours that I've just kind of thrown together along with 1/4-1/2 a teaspoon of guar gum, and they've been great! I think this is a recipe that's hard to mess up. :)

    ReplyDelete
  144. These look really good! Thanks Elise #147 for putting in your 2-cents about gluten free - we needed that so our DD could eat them. It's no fun when she has to go without.

    ReplyDelete
  145. BTW, I also HATE Family Guy. My oldest learned the word b***h from that show when she was only 2 in a house where we try very hard to watch our language. The day she applied the word accurately, in her 2-yr-old mind, was not a good day.

    ReplyDelete
  146. I am interested in making these! Was wondering if you could make them and then bring them to a party or do they need to be served hot?

    ReplyDelete
  147. Made these tonight for my kids lunches. They heat up easily and quickly in the microwave or toaster oven.

    I used 1/2 cup all purposes flour and 1/4 cup whole wheat. Worked out great!

    Thanks for a great recipe!

  150. What a great recipe! My kids loved them. My girlfriends and I started a food blog a couple months ago, and I adapted them for a post today. Hope that's ok! Let me know if I didn't go about that right. :) Love your blog!

  151. These look so good, they are going to be made sometime soon in my household!

    ...and I actually love to watch family guy/american dad when I cook... haha.

  152. Found these on Pinterest, and made them for dinner with salad last night. My husband & I are just big kids, and we loved them! Excellent for apps for a crowd; so yummy and easy to make.

  153. Made these tonight. They were very tasty and easy to make. I didn't pay attention and mixed 1 c of milk with an egg. So I just changed everything to 1. I added more pepperoni and cheese than asked for and had just enough for the 24 mini muffins. They were crusty, perfect. Thank you for sharing

  154. Love these pizza puffs and I'm sure my Husband will. As for Family Guy, yuck. My dh and I saved our marriage by watching tv in seperate rooms. lol Really, it works. Trish Butler

  155. Sometimes I think that our dear hubbies are intentionally trying to slowly destroy us on the inside. There is a lot of research on this topic on other blogs, etc. Sometimes I can actually see the sinister thoughts in my husband's mind because he gives off a very strong aura around his head - usually a bright red or sometimes a burnt-sienna. I take that as a cue to make us some good comfort food so we can all take a couple deep breaths and just feel grateful for all of our blessings. These adapted pepperoni puffs are perfect - I plan on using them next time I get that "vibe". You are so right - better or worse - so much to be thankful for!!! Thank you. Bette

  156. Hi from Canada. These look like a great recipe that maybe the wee grandsons would like. I had to laugh about the comments about your husband and the TV...as I am in my 40th year of marriage I know all about control of the remote and that "DAD" TV as my kids came to call it. I have no idea how he finds the programs that he wants to watch. Thank goodness for my laptop and Pinterest. Keep Blogging

  157. I make these often for my family and they love them. It's a favorite. Thanks for the recipe.

  159. I made these after work during a basketball playoff game for my bf and they were surprisingly quick and easy. I didn't have the exact cheeses so I mixed the bits of cheddar, parm, & mexican. I also subbed the pepperoni for lightly cooked bacon and it was delicious! I would def make this again! Thanks for the recipe!!!

    Sn: I used to be annoyed by watching basketball every night but I'm getting used to it and even stating to enjoy it a bit.

  160. Made these tonight for a baby shower. They are really easy to make and good!

  161. Could I try to use my BabyCakes pop maker instead of baking them in the oven? Thanks for your consideration.

  162. Thank you for listing what you changed from the original recipe -- lots say "adapted" but never say what they changed -- love that you did this.

  163. HI there Monica!

    I came across this recipe of yours not too long ago and gave it a shot over the weekend recently. I adapted and modified the recipe a little as we don't eat pepperoni at home. This is such a treasure, though! Love the recipe! :)

  165. Hi Monica, my name is Chelsea and I am also a SAHM. I live in North Carolina but used to spend my summers in Central Texas (Wimberley area). I just stumbled upon this recipe on Facebook and was wondering if you have any other recipes that you would recommend for 2 & 3 year olds. My boys are 15 months apart and usually it's a struggle to get the food from their plates to their mouths. Thanks so much! :)

  166. Sounds like you were telling my story. Haha!

  167. These sound super yummy. Just a couple minor changes to make the,=m healthier and we are good to go!!

  168. How do they turn out in a regular size muffin pan? These look delicious!

  172. This recipe had wonderful flavour! I made it last night & doubled the recipe; it filled 1 regular (12 cup) cupcake pan & 2 mini (12 cup each) cupcake pans. I also added half of an onion, half each of a red & yellow pepper, an extra egg, slightly less milk (- ~.25 c), 1 tsp salt, .5 tsp garlic, .25 tsp pepper, .25 tsp crushed red pepper flakes, & half cheddar, half HP Jack instead of mozzarella.
    Thanks for the recipe. I will definitely make these again.

  173. Has anybody tried making ahead of time and freezing? I'd love to make these for my son's 1st birthday tailgate party in December, but since I'll need a lot, I'd love to try and pre-bake. Thanks!

  174. Wow, I did not get 24 mini muffins out of this. I got 12! I will double the recipe next time.
