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:
Here they are ready to pop into the oven:
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?
