I’m always on the lookout for things my kids will eat….. I wouldn’t say they’re picky, but there are certain things they just wont eat. Legumes and onions are high on their “ick list.”
I saw this idea over at A Flexible Life and had to try it out. It was a resounding hit! We’ve stuffed these little beauties with pepperoni and mozzarella, ham and cheddar, and I’m going to try a dessert version this weekend – the vote is for strawberry cheesecake.
I also like this recipe because it’s pretty easy to put together. My 15-year-old can do them all by herself, and my 10 year old has a pretty good grasp on the concept. Another reason, canned biscuits are cheap….really cheap…and you can totally use store brand.
As for stuffing – I think the possiblities are endless. Here are a few I dreamed up today:
- Chocolate and mini marshmallows would be AWESOME
- Turkey and Swiss
- All Cheese
- Strawberry Cheesecake (Mentioned above – trying those this weekend, not sure how i’ll do it, will post a recipe when I figure it out.)
- Sausage and Mushroom
- Green Chile and Cheese
Do you have any ideas? Share them in the comments below!
Here’s how you do it:
- 1 Can Refridgerated Biscuits (flaky or regular, doesnt matter)
- 10 cubes of ham (or deli slices folded up small)
- 1/2 to 3/4 C shredded cheese or 10 small cheese cubes
- Flatten each biscuit in your fingers until it is about 2 1/2 inches in diameter
- Add a piece of ham and a cube of cheese or a tablespoon of shredded cheese
- Pinch the biscuit shut in half and then pinch the ends all around into a little pocket. Essentially you want to make a little dumpling as shown below
- Place seam side down on parchment or foil lined baking sheet
- Bake at 400 degrees for about 12-13 minutes
- Enjoy w/ honey mustard or marinara sauce, or a dip of your choice
Here is how the bundles look before baking:
