A tube of biscuit dough somehow ended up in my shopping cart the last time I went grocery shopping. Imagine my horror and chagrin at the discovery nwhen I was back at home putting the groceries away. Perhaps another shopper and I momentarily confused each other’s cart for our own. I hope they enjoy the items I put into their shopping cart as much as I enjoyed the biscuits they put into mine…
Okay, okay… I confess. It was deliberate… and premeditated. I put the biscuit dough into my own shopping cart. I just wanted to experiment with something without going to the trouble of making biscuit dough from scratch.
I used the biscuit dough for two different dishes. The first was red cabbage and sweet potatoes with biscuits on top.
Red cabbage, red onion, sweet potatoes and garlic were tossed with kosher salt and black pepper and baked under a lid. When the vegetables were cooked, disks of biscuit dough were placed on top and baking continued until the biscuits were browned on top.
It was a simple and plain dish and not all that impressive flavor wise, but it was good. The addition of an herb or two from the garden might have bumped it up a notch.
The biscuit pizza was better received by both Faye and myself. But, of course… There was CHEESE!
Red onion, sweet white onion, red bell pepper and garlic were sautéed with kosher salt in a little olive oil.
Sliced mushrooms were added.
Zesty chopped tomatoes (from a can) and tomato paste were then mixed in.
The pizza sauce was transferred to a greased shallow baking dish.
Black olives and brined artichoke hearts were placed on top of the sauce.
The cheese was a combination of Jarlsberg and cheddar just because that is what was on hand.
Small lumps of biscuit dough were scattered on top and the dish was baked along side the afore mentioned cabbage and sweet potatoes at 375ºF.
I inverted the baking dish onto a plate, sprinkled a little more shredded Jarlsberg and the inside-out, upside-down confused pizza was served.
