Some recipes from Pillsbury

Good Morning! Here are a few recipes from Pillsbury using their Grands Biscuits. Of course, if you're budget minded (cheap) like me, you'll just buy the cheap generic biscuits for 33 cents a container and use them in place of the Pillsbury brand.

Heck, in the first recipe I could get away with a real cheap dinner. Just 33 cents for the biscuits and the generic dogs for 79 cents and then add a bag of generic chips for 99 cents and I've got dinner done for just $2.11. LOL Okay, maybe I'll throw in a can of generic beans for 49 cents. Heck, I'm still under $3.

Grands Corn Dogs
1 (17.3-oz.) can Pillsbury® Grands!® Refrigerated Golden Corn Biscuits or 1 (16.3-oz.) can Pillsbury® Grands!® Refrigerated Buttermilk Biscuits
8 teaspoons ketchup
8 teaspoons mustard
8 hot dogs

1. Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease cookie sheet. Separate dough into 8 biscuits. Press or roll each to form 6 1/2-inch oval.
2. Spread each biscuit with 1 teaspoon ketchup and 1 teaspoon mustard. Place 1 hot dog in center of each biscuit. Roll dough around hot dog; seal ends and edges well. Place seam side down on greased cookie sheet.
3. Bake at 350°F. for 15 to 18 minutes or until golden brown.

Sloppy Joe Biscuit Pot Pies
1/2 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
1/4 cup chopped onion (1/2 medium)

3/4 cup chili sauce
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 Pillsbury® Grands!® Frozen Buttermilk Biscuits (from 25-oz bag)
2 teaspoons milk, if desired
1/2 teaspoon sesame seed, if desired

1. Heat oven to 400ºF. Spray 8-inch skillet with cooking spray. Add ground beef and onion; cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until beef is thoroughly cooked. Drain.
2. Stir in frozen mixed vegetables, brown sugar, mustard, chili sauce and Worcestershire sauce. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are crisp-tender.
3. Spoon beef mixture into 2 (1 1/2-cup) ungreased ovenproof bowls or ramekins. Top each with frozen biscuit. Brush each biscuit with milk; sprinkle with sesame seed.
4. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until biscuits are deep golden brown.

Grands Biscuit Taco Cups
1 1/2 lb. lean ground beef
1 (15-oz.) can spicy chili beans, undrained
1 (1.25-oz.) pkg. Old El Paso® 40% Less-Sodium Taco Seasoning Mix
1/2 cup water
1 (16.3-oz.) can Pillsbury Grands!® Refrigerated Golden Corn or 1 (16.3-oz.) can Pillsbury® Grands!® Refrigerated Buttermilk Biscuits
4 oz. (1 cup) shredded Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup shredded lettuce, if desired
1/2 cup chopped tomato, if desired
1/2 cup sour cream, if desired
1/2 cup Old El Paso Salsa, if desired

Heat oven to 375F. Brown ground beef in large skillet over medium-high heat until thoroughly cooked, stirring frequently. Drain.
Add chili beans, taco seasoning mix and water; mix well. Reduce heat to medium; simmer 10 minutes or until ground beef mixture is slightly thickened, stirring occasionally.
Meanwhile, spray outside bottom and sides of 8 (6-oz.) custard cups lightly with nonstick cooking spray. Separate dough into 8 biscuits. Roll or pat each biscuit to form 4 1/2-inch round. Place rounds over outside of sprayed cups; press to fit over bottom and part way down sides of cups. Place cups, upside down, in ungreased 15x10x1-inch baking pan.
Bake at 375F. for 14 to 16 minutes or until deep golden brown. Remove pan from oven. Carefully remove biscuit cups from custard cups. Place biscuit cups, right side up, in same baking pan. Spoon beef mixture evenly into each cup.
Top with cheese, lettuce, tomato, sour cream and salsa. 8 taco cups

Meatball Bubble Biscuits
1 (12-oz) can Pillsbury Golden Layers Refrigerated Buttermilk or Flaky Biscuits (I bet Grands would work)
10 frozen cooked Italian meatballs (about 5-oz), thawed, each cut in half
2 (1-oz) sticks string cheese, each cut into 10 pieces
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1 cup marinara sauce

Heat oven to 375. Separate dough into 10 biscuits. Separate each biscuit into 2 layers. Press each biscuit layer to form 3-inch round.

Place 1 meatball half, cut side up, and 1 string cheese piece in center of each dough round. Wrap dough around meatball and cheese, pressing edges to seal. Place seam side down in single layer in ungreased 8 or 9-inch round cake pan. Sprinkle evenly with Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning and garlic powder.

Bake at 375 for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown and biscuits are no longer doughy in center. Remove from pan. Serve warm biscuits with warm marinara sauce for dipping. 20 servings

Cheesy Sausage Calzones
1/2 lb bulk Italian pork sausage
1/3 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped red bell pepper
1 (10 ounce) can 95 biscuits) Pillsbury Grands
2 ounces (1/2 cup) shredded mozzarella cheese
1 1/2 cups tomato pasta sauce, heated

Heat oven to 375. In medium skillet, combine sausage, onions and bell pepper; cook over medium heat for 10 minutes or until sausage is no longer pink, stirring frequently. Drain. Cool 10 minutes.

Separate dough into 5 biscuits. On ungreased large cookie sheet, press each biscuit to form 6-inch round. Top half of each biscuit round with sausage mixture and cheese to within 1/2 inch of edge. Fold dough over filling; press edges firmly with fork to seal.

Bake at 375 for 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm calzones with warm pasta sauce for dipping. 5 servings

Mini Pizza's

One can of Pillsbury Grands biscuits
Pizza or spaghetti sauce
Mozzarella cheese
Any additional pizza toppings

Flatten Pillsbury Grands biscuits to the thickness of crust you desire. Add sauce, cheese and toppings. Bake at 400º F for approximately 12 minutes or until crust is brown, and cheese is melted. This is a great dish for kids to help with.

What, you want dessert too? Okay, open a package of biscuits, flatten one and add a dollop of pie filling. Fold it over and seal the edges. Drop into hot oil and cook until golden brown. Sprinkle with a little bit of sugar when you take it out of the oil and...Viola! Individual pies.

Have a lovely Monday.
