Your choice of foods, such as hamburger, cheese, chicken, soup, or pie filling
The next time that you go to the grocery store be sure to leave plenty of room in your shopping cart for biscuits. Get some for breakfast, lunch, supper, and for a midnight snack. You will be in awe of your own self when you realize just how many meals that you can make for your family. But are you dreading having to write all of those biscuit recipes down for future reference? Don’t be. Even though you can make hundreds of breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and snacks, you won’t need a recipe for any of them!
Ordinary canned biscuits are ideal for making biscuit pies. Open the roll and take one biscuit. Use a serrated knife to cut the biscuit in half. Put the biscuit on wax paper, press it down, and put the knife against the side of the biscuit. Pull the knife towards you, again and again, to cut it in half.
Roll the biscuit half out on the wax paper so that it is flat, and much thinner. Decide on the type of biscuit pie that you want to make. For breakfast, you could make scrambled eggs and put them on the biscuit with bacon, sausage, or other meat. Or, put apple or cherry pie filling on the biscuit. For lunch or supper, try ham and cheese, hamburger and onions, cheese and pepperoni, canned beef stew, canned or homemade chili, or even soup – without the added water. For a snack, make any of the breakfast, lunch, or supper biscuit pies.
After you’ve put the chosen foods on the biscuit, flatten the second half of it, and lay it over the one that contains the foods. If the biscuit pie is a fruit dessert, cut a pat of butter and place it on the fruit. For other biscuit pies, put in choices of spices and/or condiments. Pinch the edges together, all the way around, to seal it.
Cut four slits on top of each pie to let out the pressure as it bakes. Bake the pie, according to package instructions, or until the biscuit is browned. Remove it from the oven and let it cool for five minutes before serving.
Instead of serving biscuits on the side of a meal, incorporate them into the meal, and you’ll be able to pick up your breakfast, lunch, or dinner, and carry it with you, or eat it neatly at the table. Get creative with the biscuits to add to the hundreds that can be easily made for any meal. You don’t have to worry about recipes, you don’t have to worry about difficulties in making the meals. The only worry that you’ll have is that your store might run out of biscuits!
