Onion Cheese Bites

Here is the easiest and most delicious, simple, appetizer ever, and I have been making it to rave reviews for years. It’s called Onion Cheese Bites and it’s from a cookbook called Pam Cooks. Through the magic of the internet I was able to contact the author, Pam Collacott, and ask if I could share the recipe with our readers. To my delight, she said yes! While the original cookbook this recipe comes from is now out of print, Pam has another cookbook out you can order from her website www.pamcooks.com. It’s called Buns in the Oven: Great Recipes for Today’s Families and she wrote it as a fundraiser for an organization that she volunteers with that helps out young families at risk. All of the profits from the book sales go to the program.
