Fun with Biscuits

Refrigerated biscuits don't have to be just for dinner. You can do a lot more with them than roll them around a hot dog and call it a pig in a blanket.

A favorite around here, is to take the big "grand" sized biscuits and smash them down flat. Spread on Spaghetti or Marinara, add some cheese and bake. Easy personal sized pizzas! If you used your coupons, this could make 8 individual pizzas for under $2. It's a great lunch or after school snack.

Whenever a recipe calls for a savory pie crust, I will roll out biscuits flat or use the triangles from the crescent rolls instead. i'm terrible at pie crusts, so this is a great alternative for someone who is challenged like I am!

And try this out for dessert:

Crescent rolls filled with Nutella. Nutella is a chocolate hazelnut spread that is AMAZING. Place a heaping tablespoon of Nutella in the middle of a crescent roll. Roll and bake as usual. Sprinkle with sugar and mmmm

I thought i was being very clever when I flattened my biscuits and sprinkled them with butter, brown sugar and cinnamon. Turns out I wasn't the first person to think of Refrigerator Biscuit Cinnamon rolls!
