Let's face it, cooking a full meal every night can be a chore. Make dinner a little easier on yourself with a can of biscuits. Once you see all of the mouthwatering meals you can make, you'll never look at these dough balls the same way again.
Dinner is in 30 minutes and you have nothing to make, what do you do? Make beef empenadas, of course! Split corn-flavored biscuit dough into 2 layers, then fill with leftover ground beef. Seal them shut with a bit of egg wash and crimp the edges with a fork. 10 minutes at 400 degrees is all it takes for these bad boys to cook! Serve some sour cream and salsa on the side, and enjoy the fiesta in every bite! For the full step-by-step tutorial, head over to SeriousEats.
No biscuit dough recipe book would be complete without a Nutella dessert! Not only are these bite-sized chocolate treats easy to make, but they are delicious too! Simply fill each biscuit with Nutella and shape into a ball. Add to a baking sheet and pop into a pre-heated oven for about 15 minutes at 350 degrees. When they come out, brush with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Be sure to make extra, these go fast!
Pop open a roll of biscuit dough and quarter each disk. In a separate bowl, combine all of your favorite pizza fillings. Arrange the dough in a casserole dish and pour your bowl of fillings over to coat. Add a sprinkle of cheese and a few more toppings to garnish, and get ready to enjoy a hot casserole of "Bubble Pizza" in just 25 minutes! See how it's done here!
What's better than a warm and cozy chicken pot pie? A bunch of mini ones! This is a recipe that will make you wonder, "Why didn't I think of that first?" Pressing biscuit dough into a muffin tin, make adorable little pot pies with your favorite fillings. Check out the full tutorial by Lindsay Ann Bakes on YouTube.
If you haven't tried monkey bread yet, you are missing out! This decadent dessert is deceivingly easy to make, and is sure to please even the pickiest of eaters! Start by quartering your biscuits (a pizza cutter works great for this) then add the pieces to a bag of cinnamon sugar. Once they are coated, dump them into a greased bunt pan and top with a butter and brown sugar mixture. Bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes, then dig in! For the full tutorial, head over to POPSUGAR on YouTube.
It doesn't get much easier than this! Just pop open your can of biscuits and flatten the disks. Now they are the perfect size for personal pizzas - just add you favorite toppings! Bake at 375 degrees for 10-15 minutes and voila! Dinner is served!
