Harry Potter Weekend!

FINALLY! We got our yearly passes to Universal Studios for Christmas and the kids have been dying to go to see Harry Potter World! They got Harry Potter robes for Christmas from Auntie Laurie and Uncle Brian (Griffyndor of course!) and wands also! We have seen almost ALL the movies (still have to watch Deathly Hallows part 2) and love all the video games and lego sets they got for Christmas. And to make it even better, our cousins from North Carolina are coming to stay at our house and come to the park with us!

So I had to come up with some fun stuff and foods for the HP weekend! They are coming in Friday night so I wanted to make a fun dinner for the kids....How about Hufflepuff Pizza Puffs!

  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • pinch of salt
  • 3/4 cup whole milk
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup cubed pepperoni
  • 1/2 cup pizza sauce

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease a 24-cup mini-muffin pan. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, Italian seasoning, salt and red pepper flakes (if using) ; whisk in the milk and egg. Stir in the mozzarella, Parmesan and pepperoni; let stand for 10 minutes.

2. Stir the batter and divide among the mini-muffin cups. Bake until puffed and golden, 20 to 25 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, microwave the pizza sauce until warmed through. Serve the puffs with the pizza sauce for dipping.

I'll be back tomorrow with some more snacks straight from the wizarding world!
