Stuffed Biscuit Cups
Luckily, Bud will try anything I cook myself, including all of the foods he dislikes: rice, mushrooms and beans. Still, my biggest challenge will be the fact that Bud does not live with us. That means transporting the lunches and snacks. In addition, I have to make it easy enough for Bud to pack his own lunch in his trusty new lunch box each day.
Now, back to the food! In trying to think of things Bud will like that will also taste yummy cold, I came up with a simple solution: Stuffed Biscuit Cups. I went digging through my mom's old recipes and pulled out BarB Cups, a simple biscuit filled with something like a sloppy joe mixture. I decided instead to make my fillings from what I had on hand to make ahead three lunches this week, all in one whammy. Here are my fillings: 1) Turkey and Cheddar; 2) Mozzarella and Mini Turkey Pepperoni with Parmesan and Italian seasonings; 3) Chocolate Chip with Strawberry Preserves.
I used large canned flaky biscuits and pressed each biscuit down into an unlined muffin tin to make my cups. Then I filled each cup with my choice of toppings. I baked them according to the directions on the biscuits, 12-14 minutes. I baked them the entire 14 minutes to make sure they were done inside. My husband and I sampled them and they are wonderful! I can't wait to try more fillings! Next will be apples and cinnamon!!!
