Foods that roll

Hahahahahaha! As I am making some of the biscuit recipes today, I am thinking.....geez, everything I chose is circular tonight.

Hey K-man!!! don't TILT your plate....LOL

Here are 3 recipes for you to drool over...

Cheese Balls

1 can (12 ounces) Biscuits (10 count)
6 ounces cheddar cheese, cut into 40 cubes
1/4 c. crushed cornflakes (I had a new product of Ground Tortilla chips that I wanted to try)
1/4 c. grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/3 c. butter, melted

Preheat oven to 400F. cut each biscuit into fourths. (1/4 of a biscuit was too small, these were"popping" when cooking in oven, so I made some that were 1/2 a biscuit and they did much better.) Flatten each piece and place a cheese cube in center. Wrap dough around cheese and seal with a pinch. Shape into a ball.

Combine cornflakes(the ground tortilla chips product was good too), cheese and garlic powder. Roll each ball in butter then in cornflake mixture. Place on a lightly greased baking sheet or one lined with parchment paper. Bake for 7-9 minutes or until golden brown. Serve hot. Make 40 balls.

Meatball Bites

1 can (12 ounces) flaky biscuits
10 frozen, cooked Italian style meatballs, thawed and cut in half
2 stick string cheese, each cut into 10 pieces.
2 Tbsp. Parmesan cheese.
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1 cup pizza sauce, warmed

Preheat oven to 375F.

Cut each biscuit in half horizontally. Flatten each half into a 3-inch round. Place one meatball half and one string cheese piece in center of round. Wrap dough around meatball and press edges to seal. Place seam side down on an ungreased baking sheet. Once all balls have been placed on sheet, sprinkle evenly with Parmesan cheese, italian seasoning and garlic powder mixture made prior. Bake for 20 or until golden brown and biscuits are no longer doughy in the center. Serve with warmed pizza sauce for dipping. Makes 20.

BTW: These were K-man voted BEST of Tonight's 3 recipes.

Tasty Flowers

1/4 c. preserves, flavor your choice (I had orange on hand)
1/4 c. cream cheese
1 can (12 ounces) biscuits (10 count)

Preheat oven according to package directions.

In a medium bowl blend preserves and cream cheese. Place biscuits on a lightly greased baking sheet. Make five slashes on each biscuit to form 'petals'. Make an indentation in the center of the biscuit and drop in a teaspoon of cream cheese mixture. Bake according to package directions. Makes 10

JennyMac Note: These were good. They'd be prettier if you took egg wash and did the 'petals'...but I was too tired at that point. K-man liked these and said they reminded him of the Orange Rolls that Pillsbury used to make(we can't get them here anymore). Although, the orange tasted nice, I am sure the berry preserves would probably look better in pix.

Until next biscuit creation.....


Are those my treats you are putting in those biscuits Mommy?
