So the phrase “10-minute snacks” probably made you conjure up images of sad-looking sandwiches or sloppy waffles.
I can’t blame you. I’ve been there. Somehow, even though preparing snacks for kids coming home in less than 15 minutes is not the most challenging thing in the world, it surely wasn’t the most inspiring either. But that was before.
Here, we have 10-minute snack recipes that will change your life forever.
Well, maybe not haha, but I’m sure you’ll have a lot grander time in the kitchen preparing these for everyone!
Let’s start with…
Frugal Bruschetta is a delicious start to a meal, but it can also save you money too by filling up hungry tummies before a main meal. And if tomatoes are in season, then this truly is a frugal starter – delicious and refreshing too! I like to use sour dough bread for frugal bruschetta, but I usually buy it at the end of the day when it is on sale as you will be toasting it anyway. It doesn’t matter if it isn’t super fresh!
