I know that might be obvious, but biscuits are easy. So much so that most people have a basic version memorized. So here’s a easy-peasey version that after a few uses you’ll have it memorized too. 2 c flour (all-purpose) 4 tsp baking powder ½ tsp salt ⅓ c shortening ⅔ c milk Preheat oven to 450° Mix flour thru shortening on low for 1 minute. Slowly mix in milk until just clingy. do not over beat Pull out dough & on a lightly floured surface, knead for about 20 seconds. Roll out to ½” thick. Cut out & bake on a cookie sheet. Bake 12 – 15 minutes. Serve immediately. I would suggest checking your baking powder expiration date because otherwise they’ll fall flat!
A recipe I tried this weekend from BHG (better homes & gardens) that was delicious & has room for variability.
Mmmm breakfast, who doesn’t like breakfast foods? ( Don’t answer you breakfast haters)
This is a quick multi-feeder breakfast you can make before, refrigerate & warm back up.
4 cans “layers” biscuits (10 count)
1 pack little cocktail sausages (minimum 40 count)
11 slices American cheese
Preheat oven to biscuit temp, mine was 400°. I let them warm up a little so they were more malleable. I also chose honey flavored biscuits!
Flatten and pull biscuit into a thin patty.
Fold a slice of cheese into thirds and place a third on the biscuit, making sure it doesn’t hang over the edge of the biscuit (it burns badly).
Place a sausage on the cheese and roll up & pinch opposite biscuit ends together.
Place formed pig on the pan, you can fit 15 on a standard cookie sheet.
Bake about 10 minutes, until lightly browned. Pigs will unroll slightly. Let cool. Pull off pan & eat or let cool completely & bag to refridgerate. Serve with condiments of your choice.
