These copy-cat Burger King Cini-Mini Rolls are so easy and quick.

Last weekend, I wanted to make a special breakfast for the kids, but I didn’t actually feel like cooking. Does that ever happen to you?! I was so tired from being up most of the night with a sick child, but I wanted my other kids to have something other than cold cereal. So, what’s the answer when you find yourself in that dilemma? Canned biscuits to the rescue!

I had quickly dismissed the idea of homemade cinnamon rolls….just too much work….when I remembered I had a can of biscuits in the fridge. In just a few simple steps, I had a yummy breakfast treat that had my girls super excited. (My little boy was still sick, so he missed out this go round, but they are so easy, I know we will be making them again!)

They are reminiscent of monkey bread, but with a lot less sugar and butter.  I like to save ooey, gooey buttery Monkey Bread for special occasions!  My oldest said they were a lot like Cini Minis from Burger King, hence the name!

You can see the steps and ingredients I used in the second picture above. The amounts of butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon are going to vary depending on your tastes. I used large Grands reduced fat biscuits, that come 8 in a tube, and opted to use a brown sugar/Splenda blend and Smart Balance Light butter spread.  For the brown sugar and cinnamon, I just sprinkled some on, without measuring…I told you this was an easy recipe!  A simple icing would be fun for dipping too.

Whip these up, or even better, supervise while the kids do it! Then, sit back and enjoy…and you don’t even have to worry about super sticky fingers and faces once the kids are done! Well, I’m not making any promises on that one ;-)

Choose-Your-Flavor Biscuit Bites

The other night I pulled a can of refrigerated biscuits out of the fridge and turned them into Italian Parmesan Biscuit Bites.  I know there are all kinds of recipes out there to make knots and rolls and such out of a can of biscuits.

I just didn’t feel like looking up a recipe, so I did my own thing.

And then, I got to thinking that there are all kinds of ways to make these.  Determine your mood, determine you biscuit bite.  This is definitely more method than recipe.  Do your own thing with these.

Here are some jumping-off ideas:  [Read more…]

Ingredient Spotlight: Canned Biscuits, Crescent Rolls etc.

There’s no doubt about it.  Canned biscuits, crescent rolls, cinnamon rolls, pizza dough are all super convenient.  There are so many ways to use them that go beyond popping open the tube and baking.

One of the first recipes I learned how to cook (at a 4-H meeting) was donuts made with canned biscuits.  Anyone else?  Love those things!

Here are my recipes that use canned doughs of various types:  [Read more…]
