Easy Cheesy Bread Cups

Easy Cheesy Bread Cups





Ramadan is on its way, and we only have very few days to witness the best month of the year. May Allah help us reach Ramadan and help us reap its benefits. Aameen and May He accept it from us! Aameen.

I am someone who has been born and bought up having fried food for iftar. It's a habit, not that we don't know its effects on an empty stomach but it's habitual. The smell of something frying for iftar reflects on the vibes of Ramadan that we experience since childhood. Even though we think of healthy eating options (that rarely happens), we finally end up frying something for iftar. boohoo. 

Last Ramadan I had developed a pizza cup recipe which was a hit in my household. So this a version 2.0 of my pizza cups. I haven't shared the recipe yet but hoping to do so in the near future. If you may be thinking that Ramadan isn't for showing off cooking skills please read on to find out why I will be sharing iftar recipes when possible (I, myself have to do Ibadah, in sha Allah).

So basically I was on a quest to prepare something interesting and delicious which wouldn't compromise the feeling of fried iftar snacks. Also, I wanted it to be simple and hassle-free with basic ingredients. After all, Ramadan isn't a month for showcasing your cooking talents. But sometimes mothers and wives need better ideas and options to make life easy during Ramadan and as they themselves are fasting and would want to do ibadah instead of toiling in the kitchen. I believe I have more of female readers here, if you are a male I urge you to help your mother, wife or sister as it is we are locked down during Ramadan due to the pandemic situation. Let's pray and hope for the best.

These are delicious and super easy to make and I am sure kids would love to join in to make these yummy easy cheesy bread cups.
