I have really been into the creative and quick meals lately and this one was SO easy you’re just going to love it! Plus it’s an awesome hearty appetizer that you can put out on the table when company comes over! We’ve been snacking on these all week! I added a little extra prep work into this easy dinner but you can easily simplify it even further!

You’ll need:

  • Pillsbury Grands! Biscuits (each container contains 8 biscuits)

  • Kraft Fresh Taste Savory Four Cheese Mix

  • 1 pound ground beef

  • Tomatoes, dried

  • Bell Peppers, dried

  • mushrooms

  • mozzarella cheese

I actually decided to try my own tomatoes which is SO easy! You just need some Roma tomatoes (about 5 pounds). Cut them into quarters and then halve and scoop out all seeds and “fleshy” material. Mix 2 tsp. salt, 1 tsp. Rosemary, 1 tsp. Thyme, and 1 tsp. oregano in a bowl and sprinkle over the tomatoes.

I actually dried mine in the dehydrator overnight but you can place them in the oven too. I dried my own bell peppers in the dehydrator too since I had so many of both in my garden.

To store them I put them in a jar of olive oil. This makes a fabulous gift too!!

Then I cooked my ground beef and mixed in cheese. Let me tell you that this stuff tastes simply AMAZING and made all the difference in flavor! It was super easy – I just dumped it in my pot as I was cooking my ground beef.

Then I flattened out the Pillsbury biscuits and placed them into a well-greased muffin pan (1). Added in a spoon of cooked ground beef (2). Added a mushroom (3). Added my dried tomatoes and bell peppers (4).

Bake it in the oven at 325* for 15-20 minutes, place it on a plate, add some red peppers on the side and sprinkle dried parsley on top. VOILA! An easy and creative appetizer/dinner!

    I’m not a big ground meat fan, but these look delicious and easy. I will have to make them for the other half- I love discovering new things to do with my favorite Fresh Take blends.

    Sounds amazing! I love this idea because it can be used for paties as an appetizer or as a meal for your family.

    1. It’s REALLY versatile depending on how you want to set it up! I made some just to keep in the fridge for those “meals/snacks” on the run! They are fantastic!
