Veggie Biscuits!


I am all for easy, quick but delicious snacks and if I can find a way of incorporating healthy eating into it, then all the better.

This afternoon while trying to find something to eat for lunch, I was craving vegetables but not just plain ol veggies, I wanted something different.


While searching through the refrigerator I found a can of refrigerated biscuits, those 8 count large biscuits, and then it hit me, why not make some Veggie Biscuits?

Don't crinkle your nose, I know it may sound a little weird but stick with me here, I promise you'll enjoy and if your kids love biscuits AND veggies, this is a great way of whipping up a nutritious healthy snack.


Veggie Biscuits

1 can of large refrigerated biscuits (8 count)
4 oz of cream cheese (half a box), softened
Ranch dressing
shredded cheese (I used the colby jack, but you can use whichever you like) 
Finely chopped onion, green pepper (this is what I had on hand, but go ahead and add broccoli, tomato, cauliflower, carrots etc, whatever you have)


Bake the biscuits according to the package directions.    Let them cool completely and then slice in half.


In a medium bowl, mix the softened cream cheese and add ranch dressing to your liking.  I didn't use too much but just enough to make it tasty without overpowering the cream cheese.

Spread about a teaspoonful of the mixture on every biscuit half, top with the chopped veggies and the cheese.  Pop in the refrigerator until ready to eat.
