Variation on a recipe using Pillsbury Grands biscuits

December 6, 2013

I saw a commercial on television the other night that shared a recipe using Pillsbury Grands Biscuits to make mini pot pies. You’ll need a muffin/cupcake tin, chunks of chicken (about 1 lb, diced and cooked), 1 can of cream of chicken soup (or any cream soup you prefer), and some mixed vegetables (a cup of those should do it), and 12 Grands Biscuits. You could substitute diced beef or pork roast for the chicken, broccoli and or cauliflower for the mixed veggies, etc. The variations and possibilities depend on your tastes and imagination.

Mini Pot Pies

Grease the cups of your muffin/cupcake tin, place one biscuit in each section of the tin and press them down and up around the sides to form a cup.

Mix the undiluted cream soup, mixed vegetables, and diced chicken together.

Spoon this mixture into each biscuit cup until each cup is 3/4 full. Bake at 350° for 11 to 14 minutes. You can top with any garnish you like before serving.

Meat & Cheese Biscuit Bake

Press biscuits into muffin tin to make a cup, fill with your favorite taco meat, pulled pork, or shredded beef, top with cheese, and bake @ 350° for 11 to 14 minutes. Garnish with salsa, sour cream, or your favorite topping, depending on which variation you make and your preferences.

You can also place the biscuits on a cookie sheet, press them out flat, turn the edges up all round to make a cup, place the meat of your choice in the cup, top with cheese, and bake at 350° for 11 to 14 minutes.

I made these using the taco meat and topped them with a mix of shredded Colby-Jack cheese. They turned out pretty good, and grilled or baked vegetables would go well with these (red, green, and/or yellow peppers, onions, carrots, whatever veggies you like), sliced up, spiced up, buttered, and baked.

If you don’t want to use canned biscuits and prefer your own biscuit recipe, you could use that instead, as long as you can roll it out and cut out the biscuit rounds to put in the muffin tin.
