We’ve been doing a lot of “make your own” type meals for Qwerty dinners lately; I think they’re a great way to make sure everyone has what they want, with minimal effort, and delicious results.
This last weeks was definitely one of the best.
Along with pizza balls, we also filled some with roast beef and amazing electric orange melty cheese.
And we topped ours all a little differently to make sure we knew just whose was whose.
- 2 - 4 biscuits for each person (use ready to bake biscuit tubes)
- 1 teaspoon melted butter for each person
- Garlic Powder
- Suggested Filling:
- 2 tablespoons of motzerella cheese for each biscuit ball
- 1 tablespoon of pizza sauce for each ball
- 2 pepperoni for each ball
- Red Onion
- Pineapple Chunks
- BBQ Chicken
- Roast Beef (sandwich meat)
- Creamy Cheddar Cheese
- Preheat oven as directed on biscuit packaging - should be 375 degrees
- Stretch one biscuit until about the diameter of your hand with extended fingers.
- Place your chosen filling in the center and then fold the edges of the biscuit dough around it, pinching it all close.
- Place the biscuit ball, smooth side up, onto a baking tray.
- Brush the top with melted butter and sprinkle some garlic powder on top.
- Once all your biscuit balls are made, place in the oven and bake until golden brown - this should be about 15 minutes.
- Serve warm, but be cautious as the insides will be very hot!
Some of ours weren’t perfect balls, and more like hot pockets, but they were still amazing and cooked just as well.
*Fun Fact: When she was 10-13ish, only 1 out of every 5 batches of sugar cookie dough would make it past the butter/sugar stage and end up in the oven instead of Brie’s stomach. #ThisIsWhyI’mFat
P.S. She also set the microwave on fire during the same era while making home-made microwavable popcorn. Pro tip: Alton Brown is WRONG and you cannot put a paper bag with staples into the microwave; things will go badly.
P.P.S Happy ending. Even though to put out the fire she threw a bowl of water onto it and shorted all the circuits, the microwave started working after a week and her mom was non-the-wiser.
P.P.P.S But, I guess not any longer…
