Cheesy Vegetable Discs / Baked Bread Appetizer

Cheesy vegetable discs are delicious baked bread appetizers. These cute looking discs are loaded with healthy goodness of whole vegetables , cheese and paneer (cottage cheese) .They are easy to make and serve as perfect starters for parties and kids gatherings.These cheesy discs are not only visual treats , but they are delicious and nutritious too. The bread provide carbs , cheese and paneer give us protein and vegetables provide our body with minerals and vitamins. 

  Every bite of this snack is a burst of flavors as it is a bit tangy , spicy and flavorful all at the same time. The recipe calls for cutting the bread slices into roundels using a cookie cutter. Few of these roundels are further cut again by a small cutter , to get a ring of the bread. A flavorful spread of butter and cheese is made which coats the roundels of bread and the rings are placed over this. The empty round cavity so formed is filled with a stuffing of vegetables and paneer . The discs are then baked in a preheated oven until crisp.

 With festivities pouring in, we have a long weekend and i made these cuties for my son's play date.
