I know many of you are in the same situation as I am…Spring Sports. The constant running of children from school to practice to games, etc. When is practice? Dinner time. So when do you feed the kids? For us it has to be something super quick and easy. Sometimes portable! Today’s round-up comes from my stash of recipes using store-bought biscuits, crescent roll dough or pizza dough. I try not to rely on these too often, but sometimes you just need some shortcuts, and I still think it’s healthier than the choices my kids would make in a drive-thru!
The most popular on the blog are the “Bubble Up” Recipes, using canned biscuits. These are a hit with my kids as well.
Bubble Up Taco Casserole
Bubble Up Garlic Cheese Bread – not a meal in itself, but serve with a salad and fruit; or with soup/chili…
Bubble Up Pizza – add any ingredients your family likes on a pizza. This is one of the top viewed recipes on my blog and I see different versions all over Pinterest.
Ham and Cheese Bubble Up – this could go for breakfast or dinner!
Speaking of Breakfast…or dessert!
Blueberry Maple Bubble Up
Other recipes using canned biscuits –
Ham and Cheese Melts – basically a hand pie made with biscuits…fill with anything you like!
Biscuit Breakfast Casserole – another breakfast or dinner option. We love breakfast for dinner!
And a quick and easy breakfast option – Copycat Burger King Cini-Minis
Pizza Dough is also a great option for quick and easy meals. Obviously you can make traditional pizza, but you can also make some fun variations.
Upside Down Pizza Casserole
Pizza ‘Braid’ – this can have any fillings you want, and you can use pizza dough or crescent roll dough. It’s the presentation that makes this one unique!
Stuffed Crust Pizza – this is SO easy and my kids love it. Can you have too much cheese?
And another breakfast option –
Yes, pizza dough to the rescue for Quick and Easy Cinnamon Rolls
I also like frozen rolls or bread dough, but it has to be thawed in advance. Both of these can be made with biscuits as well.
Pizza Monkey Bread
Monkey Bread – this is usually a “special occasion” breakfast, and requires prep time the night before, but with Mother’s Day coming soon I thought I would include it!
I also have a shortcut for Caramel Sticky Buns using store bought cinnamon rolls.
So what are your “go-to” meals when there is no time?! I also love the crock-pot, and will do a round up of those soon.
