Canned Biscuits

This is a busy week for us, so I tried to think of some quick meals. One quick meal idea is these Double Cheeseburger Pizza Rounds. I have adapted the recipe from one of those Pillsbury magazines that you can get at the checkout counter.

Double Cheeseburger Pizza Rounds
1/2 pound ground beef
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 can of Grands biscuits or something similar (you need the large biscuits for this)
about 1 1/2 cups of spaghetti sauce
2 Tbsps. sliced ripe olives
pepper to taste
garlic powder to taste
1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
1 cup mozzarella cheese, divided
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

Brown ground beef and onions. Drain and set aside to cool. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with foil or a silpat. Open the biscuits and press each one to form about a 3 1/2 inch round. Combine the ground beef with the spaghetti sauce, olives, seasonings, feta cheese and half the mozzarella cheese.
Divide this mixture onto the biscuits and then spread it evenly. Top each biscuit with the additional cheese and then bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 mins. or until the cheese is melted and browned to your liking.

Here's the dough pressed out and ready for the filling:

Another thing that I tried recently from the canned biscuits was making flatbread. I got the idea from this blog. For those who can't get to Blogspot, here's how you can make the flatbreads:

Using large biscuits, such as Grands, roll each biscuit to approximately a 6" circle.

Cook in a dry skillet or on a dry griddle until browned on each side.

We used these for fajitas and they were very tasty.

What is your favorite quick and easy meal?

    These pizzas look delicious, Becka. You just make me want to come to your house every night to eat! 🙂 I love using canned biscuits as shortcuts. One of my family’s favorites is what I call “chicken pockets.” I used leftover chicken, mixed with spices, onion, cheese, and sour cream to make a filling for a turnover made from the rolled out biscuit. Topped with stuffing mix crumbles and baked till brown–yum!

    I forgot to ask in my previous post. What is a silpat? I hate to broadcast my ignorance, but I don’t know this term. I see in your picture what it looks like–but what exactly is it? And where do you get it?

    Rhonda, actually in the picture I was using some parchment paper since I was baking these on a small pan in my toaster oven. 🙂 A silpat is a silicone/fiberglass mat that is non-stick. Mine is large enough to line my largest cookie sheet/jelly roll pan. It is also good for kneading and rolling out dough. They are pretty pricey–about $20 (although I have seen knock-offs at Walmart for about $8). You can buy them at kitchen shops and at Bed Bath and Beyond. I believe they originated in France.

    Rhonda, I have eaten these little chicken pockets before and they are delicious! The recipes I have seen before have been made with crescent rolls. The biscuits would probably be less expensive and lower in fat too.

    We love these, and I had forgotten all about them! We are having them tonight. 🙂
