Cheeseburger Biscuit Bake

Ok, I loooooove refrigerated bake-and-serve biscuits. If I had to pick 5 foods to eat all the time? They’d be on the list. I rarely buy them, though, because 1. I can’t be trusted around them and, alternately, 2. I don’t like them anywhere near as well as leftovers. Fresh from the oven only.

One thing I don’t eat is pork and beans. I used black beans, which we generally throw in pretty much everything, instead. I don’t know if they’re weird for this recipe, but they tasted pretty good to us. I also added some mustard, because obviously that should be in any cheeseburger-themed recipe. You know that, though, because they seem to be a theme around here. This tasted pretty much like all the rest, but, you know, BISCUITS. Recommend.

Salmon Bites

We had some tilapia filets in the freezer with no purpose in mind, so I turned them into fish sticks with this breading. The kids (who don’t like fish) ate it UP. Big fans. Thomas and I really liked it, too.

Hot Pork Sandwiches

So you remember when we talked about the massive amount of smoked pulled pork in my freezer? (Of course you do.) Continuing down the path of using it up in as many ways as possible we had hot (shredded) pork sandwiches this week. I made homemade bread, but when it came down to it I couldn’t resist building the sandwich school cafeteria style: with squishy processed bread right out of the plastic bag.

(Are hot meat sandwiches a regional thing? Did you have them? Open faced with bread, mashed potatoes, meat, and gravy on top?)

Stuffed Corn & Black Bean Quesadillas

These were fine. Good, even. Just not something I’m sure we’ll make again. The kids thought they were spicy (too much red onion), but ate them as long as they had a lot of dip (Greek yogurt, which we use instead of sour cream, and salsa). I’m just not the biggest quesadilla fan, but if you are…go for it.

  1. I always like meal planning posts because I am so tired of everything I cook.
