Our family loves to start off meals with a fun appetizer. Our Baked Mozzarella Bites are an easy-to-make appetizer that is a family favorite everyone enjoys. Bake in advance and reheat throughout the week for a quick and easy snack. And, make sure to include Florida Orange Juice to make it a complete healthy snack.
