Broccoli Spinach and Cheddar Appetizer Recipe

Monday, December 31, 2012
Broccoli, Spinach and Cheddar Cheese Appetizers, these won't last long! This is the perfect after school or work snack to keep on hand. They freeze well too!

I often make appetizers using refrigerator dough since it's so fast and they never fail me! The kids love them too and it's a great way to get them to eat vegetables!
