    Baked Cherry Tomatoes and Pearl Onions
    Shanthz posted:

    Getting kids to eat veggies isn't easy - every family has tried numerous ways to include veggies in their child's diet, sometimes they succeed, and sometimes they don't. If you don't have kids, you might have nephews and nieces who are picky eaters and veggies are definitely not their favorite foods and must be sneaked into their food. Another alternative is making the food presentation attractive like mini quiches, mini muffins, tiny pancakes, mini pizzas and calzones. Everyone's favorite macaroni and cheese can be baked in individual portions. Think small, think attractive colors, and they will be motivated to try it, and who knows, they might just eat it.

    These little baked cherry tomatoes and pearl onions are appealing to kids because they are cute and topped with some gooey cheese. The best thing is everyone gets their own little baked tart or something like a tart, right? And, I haven't met any kid who doesn't anything small and cute that is topped with their favorite cheese.

    All you have to do is use store-bought pastry, some cherry tomatoes, pearl onions, and cheese. Any cheese that is their favorite should work in this recipe. I cut some pastry into 3-inch rounds and piled on some sliced cherry tomatoes and pearl onions. Spread some shredded cheddar cheese and dried thyme. Baked in a 375-degree oven for about 15 minutes until the cheese was gooey and the pastry golden brown. Allowed to cool and served. I hope the kid in your life will think this is cute and try it. Good Luck!!
