Our kids sometimes can be choosy when it comes to food. Mostly they want their food to be sweet and not consist of too strong flavoring and herbs. This recipe is the perfect dish that you can serve to your kids. It has a meaty, cheesy and sweet taste that our kids will surely love. Great as their main dish or snacks for mid afternoon.
