My husband and I had a much need date last weekend. We left my daughter and her friend in charge. They asked if they could make dinner and I whole-heatedly gave them permission. This morning, when I went to download our Easter pics, I found a bunch of pictures of piggy pies. I about fell off the chair laughing. My daughter said she took them so I could blog about it. So how can I not:
They decided to make Piggy Pies a recipe from this book: 3 Books in 1: Silly Snacks, Classroom Treats, Cookie Dough Fun.
The orginal calls for cream of chicken soup and fozen veggies, but he girls used a can of beef stew instead.
1 Package of canned biscuit dough
1 Can Beef stew
10 frozen peas
Open stew and divide evenly into 5 (10 ounce) custard cups. Place on raw biscuit on top of each. With the remaining biscuits, form, legs, snout, and ears. Use peas as eyes. Bake for 9-11 minutes @ 400. Makes 5.
You could easily substitute chili, spaghetti, etc or make the biscuits into different shapes. If you are really ambitious you could make homemade biscuits. Have Fun!
I'm a little worried that I need to write up some disclaimer that we don't actually eat canned dough at every meal. For the record last night we had a big chef salad and bread sticks.
