Posts Tagged ‘Biscuits’

Ever since I found the blog, Plain Chicken, I have pinned their recipes like crazy.  This is one of those recipes and I made them to go with the Simple Pasta Soup I posted a few weeks ago.  Butter Dips are just a simple homemade buttermilk biscuit recipe, but the taste magic happens when you bake them in a pan with melted butter instead of just on a baking sheet.  I could have eaten the whole pan by myself.

ButterDips

1/4 cup unsalted butter
1 1/4 cup flour
2 tsp. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. kosher salt
2/3 – 1 cup buttermilk or milk (I used 4 tbsp. dried buttermilk and 1 cup water.)

Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.  Cut the butter into pieces and melt it in a 8×8 inch baking dish using the microwave.

Combine all of the dry ingredients together in a bowl then add the water (or buttermilk).  Stir until combined.  The dough will be a little sticky.  Put the dough into the pan with the melted butter and press it out to cover the pan. You may want to flour your fingers to keep the dough from sticking to them. Using a sharp knife, slice through the dough to form 12 biscuits.

Bake for 15-18 minutes until the tops are browned just a little.  My oven cooks a little slow, so check them at 15 minutes so they don’t burn.

I found this recipe and a great new blog on Pinterest.  I had never heard of this blog before but now I am hooked!  The name is Plain Chicken and there is a funny story behind the name so go check it out as soon as you can!.  She is a fellow Southerner and the food on her site looks so good.

Bubble Up Pizza is easy, good, and the recipe makes a huge pan.  In fact, there was enough for two suppers for C and I and 2 lunches for me.  That is a lot of food from one pan.  The original recipe says to use the pizza toppings of your choice so I chose ground beef, Italian sausage, onions and green peppers, but the there are many, many combinations you can try.  Have fun with it and see what you can come up with.

2 cans (12oz. each) golden layer buttermilk biscuits

1 jar (15 oz.) pizza sauce

2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

1/2 lb. lean ground beef

1/2 lb. Italian sausage

1 bell pepper, diced

1/2 medium onion, diced

Cook the ground beef, sausage, pepper and onion until the meat in thoroughly cooked and the veggies are soft. 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and spray a 9×13 inch baking pan with non-stick spray.  Cut the biscuits into quarters and place in a large bowl.  Toss the biscuits with the sauce.  Add the pizza toppings and half of the cheese.  Toss until well blended.

Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish and top with remaining cheese.  Bake for 25-30 minutes or until biscuits are done.  This is enough for a whole meal so I just served mine with some fresh chopped veggies on the side.
