This week: Cheesy Garlic Bites from zestuous.com
Who tried it: Katie Clapsadl, Rights and Royalties Associate
- 2 cans buttermilk biscuits (not the flaky kind)
- 20 balls mozzarella fresca ciliegine (cherry size) or mozzarella cut into cubes
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 6 cloves garlic, minced
- pinch crushed red pepper flakes
- 2 tablespoons butter
- ¼ cup white wine
- ¼ tsp. salt
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- ½ cup shredded parmesan cheese
- salt and basil to taste
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Open the can of biscuits. Flatten each biscuit. Drain the liquid from the container of fresh mozzarella. Place a mozzarella ball in the center and wrap the dough around it to form a ball.
Heat olive oil over medium low heat in a skillet. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes. Sauté for 1-2 minutes. Add in the butter and stir until melted. Slowly pour in the wine and salt (it may splatter) and continue cooking for 1-2 minutes.
Roll the dough balls into the butter.
Place the balls in a mini muffin pan (open side up).
Combine the shredded cheeses and pile on each dough ball.
Bake in a 450-degree oven for 8-10 minutes.
Remove from oven. Brush with remaining garlic butter. Sprinkle with salt and basil to taste. Serve warm.
With all that extra time not spent in the kitchen, what’s Katie currently reading?
On the isolated desert island of Shiara, dying young is inevitable. The clan comes before self, and protecting her home means Khya is a warrior above all else.
But when following the clan and obeying their leaders could cost her brother his life, Khya’s home becomes a deadly trap. The only person who can help is Tessen, her lifelong rival and the boy who challenges her at every turn. The council she hoped to join has betrayed her, and their secrets, hundreds of years deep, reach around a world she’s never seen.
To save her brother’s life and her island home, her only choice is to trust Tessen, turn against her clan, and go on the run—a betrayal and a death sentence.
