Stuffed Pizza Bites

A combination of two past bite incarnations Pizza Bite meets Bruschetta Bite. That sounds like one of those Japanese creature movies. Godzilla meets Mothra or whatever. Seriously, I know I have said this before but these might be my favorite version of these little suckers.

Shelly's Stuffed Pizza Bites

1/2 Yellow Onion, diced
3 Green Onions, diced
4 Mushrooms, chopped
2 cloves Garlic, minced
1 teaspoon Butter
12 thin slices Pepperoni, diced (I used Boar's Head)
1 Tablespoon Fresh Basil, chopped
1/2 teaspoon Kosher Salt
a few twists of Black Pepper
5 Eggs, beaten
1/2 cup Bruschetta Sauce, drained of excess liquid (I used Trader Joe's but Contadina & Buitoni make one too - find in the fresh pasta section)
1/4 cup Parmesan, grated
Small fresh Mozzarella balls (nickle size, halfed)

Preheat oven to 350 F. Saute onions in butter till golden. Add mushrooms and garlic and saute 1 minute more. Set aside to cool. Mix all ingredients together (except mozzarella balls.) Be sure veggie mixture has cooled slightly before adding to egg mixture. Spoon (I use a small ice cream scoop) into a lightly greased mini muffin tin (I use a drop of olive oil on a paper towel to swipe each muffin hole.) Insert 1/2 small fresh mozzarella ball in the middle of each bite. Bake for 30 minutes. Makes 24.

Serving suggestion: Serve with a green salad or a scoop of Shelly's Italian Bean Salad for a great light Italian themed meal. They make a great weight loss surgery friendly meal or party appetizer. Very kid friendly too.
