Yummy Strawberry Jam Ricotta Bites
I often have a cup of tea in the afternoon and love having a little something to go with it. Something sweet and yummy and easy to make.
These little Strawberry Jam Ricotta Bites are so simple to make, and have only five ingredients in them. You can actually use a different flavor of jam or use cream cheese instead of ricotta cheese.
The bottoms of them are just pressed down bread, and this could be a fun recipe to make with your little ones in the kitchen.
3 cups of stale sandwich bread with crusts removed, torn into small pieces
3 large eggs, beaten
1 cup milk
2/3 cup ricotta or cream cheese
2/3 cup strawberry jam
Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Butter or lightly oil a 12 or 24 cup mini muffin pan
In a medium bowl, mix eggs and milk, set aside
Place bread pieces into muffin cups, filling 3/4 full. Light compact bread with your fingers
Add 1/2 teaspoon ricotta cheese to muffin cup, then pour 1 tablespoon egg mixture on top.
Top with 1/2 teaspoon jam in each muffin cup
Bake for 12-15 minutes until done
Let cool in pan for 5 minutes before removing
Makes 24 mini bites
