Quick Cherry and Cheese Bites

P1040840
Hi!
First of all a quick reminder to all of you to send your entries for ‘Only’- Chaat and Flavours Of Punjab events hosted here by me, which ends on 30th Nov.
These days I am facing a big problem, my younger one refuses to eat his lunch box. He is so engrossed in his  school activities and play that he prefers to chuck his meals. So, I ensure that he eats something in the morning before he leaves as he leaves quite early and then provide him some quick bites in his lunch box that he can gobble up (that’s what they do in school).
I am always on a look out for such preparations which are easy to make and look attractive too. While watching one of the cookery shows, in the kids segment they had shown these attractive and healthy bites and I also felt like grabbing them right from the TV. These are extremely quick to make, need very few ingredients which are easily available in our kitchen. Since, I had all the ingredients in hand I tried them immediately. In the original recipe they had used raw asparagus, since that is not easily available here I replaced it with tender French beans which I preferred to saute a little.
I was extremely glad to see the younger one gobbling these and I was happy to see some vegetable going into his system. This is perfect snack to go for the line “taste bhi aur health bhi”.

Take a cheese slice and keep a french bean on one edge and roll the slice over it. Make three cheese rolls.
P1040833 
Keep each roll on the three bread pieces and then cut each bread piece again into 3 equal parts to get bite size squares.
P1040834
Place cherry piece on each bread square  and then insert a toothpick into it. Arrange on a plate and serve. These can be given in the lunch box or it can be good after play snack.
