I don’t know about you, but it takes me a little while to get back into the routine of school. Each year, my children have new activities and I find myself volunteering for new things, filling our days with nonstop buzz. Sometimes dinner is caught on the fly because in the midst of it all, I forget to thaw anything to cook!
This year, although I have one less child living at home, our lives are more busy than ever. One of my sons is on a high school football team, adding practices and games to our schedule. All of my children have homework each night, the progress of which has to be monitored each night. I started teaching piano lessons again, after a many-year hiatus, which also affects the dinner routine. For nights when I am just too frazzled to think, I keep my fridge and freezer stocked with handy ingredients like Pillsbury Grands! Biscuits.
Do you know how versatile those things are? First off, they are great served in their natural state as biscuits. My kids will eat them topped with sloppy Joe mix, gravy, as a side to soup or just topped with butter and jam. With a little tweaking, though, they can become pizza crust, pot pie topping, tostadas or my new personal favorite, flat bread for grilled sandwiches.
I took this great Grilled Cheese Sandwich recipe and added ham and egg. My kids love breakfast for dinner, so on nights when I have little or no time to plan or cook, I break out the eggs. Set up a griddle to cook the biscuits and have a skillet going to cook the eggs on the stove top. Then, in assembly line style, put the sandwiches together. You may or may not actually have to grill them once they are made. The heat from the eggs and the newly made “flat bread” will melt the cheese on its own.
