I am always searching for quick, homemade recipes for supper. We have our main meal at lunch, so I cook light meals for supper. I saw several similar ideas for this on Pinterest, and so decided to create my own version based on the ingredients that are easily available to me. This recipe is definitely one of my favorites and is on a regular menu schedule!
You start by making a biscuit dough. Use your favorite recipe. I've included mine below. It come from a vintage Better Homes and Gardens Homemade Bread Cookbook that my mom gifted to me from her cookbook stash when I got married. I love this book!
Next, gather your filling ingredients and cut into cubes or pieces. I used ham and mozzarella cheese in this particular batch, but honestly, the variations on this recipe are endless. Just use what you have on hand.
Cut or form your biscuits by hand and flatten them a little. Put on your desired ingredients. You can add a small amount of the condiment of your choice or just serve the biscuits with the condiments later. I've done both, but I think I prefer leaving them dryer to bake because they can get messy pretty quickly if you go overboard on the condiments inside the biscuit. Fold up the sides of the biscuit to cover the insides and pinch together at the top to seal. Place the sealed side down on a baking sheet.
When all are assembled, bake your stuffed biscuits according to your biscuit recipe instructions.
Enjoy the yummy warm goodness when they are done! I've served these with mustard and mayonnaise most often, but depending on how you seasoned them, you could serve them with marinara sauce, ranch dressing, or anything else! One time I brushed the tops of the biscuits with a creamy Italian dressing I mixed up on the fly. After baking them, I brushed them again with the mixture and that was also fantastic.
