I am a planner, at least I like to think I am. With three kids the odds on any plan I have set down getting done as planned are low. Today it seemed so simple, give each kid a small set of chores for our spring cleaning weekend, get them done, go to the spring carnival, go to dinner with the family and let the kids get root-beer floats since they all got good grades on their report cards and then come home and make cookie dough. My personal list was pretty short, gym, grocery shop and spring cleaning and then take the kids to said activities. To say my boys were bad today would be such a gross understatement, I wish I could tactfully put into words how outrageously terrible they were today but it would be hard. So I spent most of the day chasing them around, breaking up fights and helping them re-clean areas they had messed up. I also had to clean up the shattered pieces of a broken lamp. I have great kids, very smart and mostly good, but sometimes I have no idea what gets into them. So I got the trip to the gym in and picked up the groceries, no spring cleaning, that will have to get done tomorrow. We did not make it to the spring carnival or out for root-beer floats and the mood to make cookies has waned. So a little late in the day I am going through the refrigerator looking for something to make. I am pretty new to Pinterest and have really been enjoying it lately and as I see ground beef, flaky buttermilk biscuits and cheese I remember seeing a few pics of cheeseburger biscuits and decide that is just what we need. I also decide to make some spicy ones, I love anything with a little extra heat and I often make a topping I have used for chicken, avocado sandwiches and stuffed in burgers before and thought it would be suited for this recipe. This was so easy and the kids really liked it, giving them a while to relax, eat dinner and reset for the remainder of the evening. Thumbs up on this one all around, even from the hubby.
1 lb ground beef
2 16 oz rolls of Jumbo Buttermilk Biscuits
Pepper and Garlic salt to taste
2 Tbsp Jalapeno slices
1 Tbs crushed garlic (I also like to use fresh sliced, but I was out)
3/4 cup diced onion
1 Tbsp butter
Pinch of salt
In a skillet cook the ground beef until browned, sprinkle with garlic salt and pepper. If you want to use the spicy topping, get this started in a small frying pan cook on a low heat for a long time until the onions are nice and brown. Spray muffin tins with non-stick spray and take each biscuit and split it in 1/2, form one half to the bottom of each mold and set the top aside. Once beef is browned strain to remove any excess grease. for the plain cheeseburger biscuits I put a spoon of beef, a pinch of cheese and then put the top 1/2 of the biscuit back on top and pushed down. I was not particularly concerned with how they looked and like how they turned out. For the spicy topping I spooned in some topping first, then beef then cheese and topped them off with the other 1/2 of each biscuit. I then baked them in a pre-heated 375 degree oven for 15 minutes.
