Biscuit Dogs

November 8, 2010 1 comment


What do you do when you need to come up with a cheap, fast, easy meal?  What if you have hot dogs but no buns or bread?  You make biscuit dogs!  Now I know some won’t touch hot dogs, but me, I LOVE my hot dogs.  These are cheese turkey dogs as my kids love them.  You take me to a ballgame and I will eat 5 hot dogs if you let me.  Well tonight it was getting close to 7:00 and I still hadn’t made anything, so we thought hot dogs with Mac and Cheese.  Easy and everyone likes it.

Then we found out we had no buns or bread.  Bummer.  But me I found some pizza dough…. well it was way past the expiration date (I need to toss some things more often) so I saw the can of Grand Biscuits and announced I was going to make biscuit dogs with cheese!

Chow Mein aka Beef and Rice

I know I know…. this is NOT Chow Mein.  For some reason in my family that is what it was always called.  Along with grilled cheese being called cheese toasties.  I mostly call this dish beef and rice now, I got use to it after I was married and Mike looked at me like I was crazy when I said I was going to make Chow Mein…. and this is what I served him!

Whatever you call it, it’s good, easy, fast… and in one skillet!  You can also make it in the oven, which is how I always use to make it until I realized I could use minute rice and cut down the cooking time by a lot and I could do it on the stove and not heat up the house for over an hour.
