A Giveaway!

The folks at MyBlogSpark were kind enough to send me a box of goodies the other day. I am always thrilled to get a box in the mail, especially when I wasn’t expecting anything. I opened the box and found all of this!


It’s a lovely bread basket, butter knife, butter dish, a $15 Visa card (it’s already in my purse), and a coupon for free Pillsbury Frozen Grands or Mini Grands Biscuits. Pillsbury® Grands!® Frozen Mini Biscuits, the new freezer-to-oven biscuits that come warm, fluffy and fresh from your oven in just minutes. Each 70-calorie biscuit is a delight when served hot from the oven, with a warm fluffy center and golden, flaky crust. Pillsbury® Grands!® Mini Biscuits are the perfect size for kids, or for mini sandwiches and appetizers. There are countless recipe options, from miniature ham sandwiches come lunchtime, to delicious sliders for nighttime entertaining. There are so many ways to make these biscuits and your family will love trying each one.

The best part is they said I could give another one of these prize packages away to one of my lucky blog readers. I know!

You will have to work for it a bit, though. Just share your own recipe idea, demonstrating how you would use Pillsbury® Grands!® Mini Biscuits. Get creative – I know you can do it. If you don’t have one, that’s ok, just tell me which dishes you think go best with biscuits. Chili? Beef Stew? Eggs? Chicken Soup? Inquiring minds need to know. Here is a recipe idea for you to try. It’s quick, easy and very tasty!

Grands® Fiesta Chicken Casserole



1 can (16.3 oz) Pillsbury® Grands!® Homestyle refrigerated buttermilk biscuits

1/2 cup Old El Paso® Thick 'n Chunky salsa

1 1/2 cups cubed cooked chicken

1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (6 oz)

1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper

1/4 cup sliced ripe olives, drained, if desired


  • CUT each biscuit into 8 pieces; toss with salsa to coat.
  • SPREAD in sprayed 8-inch square (2-quart) glass baking dish; sprinkle with remaining ingredients.
  • BAKE at 375°F 35 to 40 minutes or until edges are deep golden brown and center biscuit pieces are no longer doughy. Let stand 15 minutes. Serve with additional salsa, if desired.

How easy is that? Now it’s your turn. Leave a comment here and I will draw a winner on Monday, October 11. Be sure to leave a way to contact you, either your email address or blog address. Good luck!!


  1. Oh yummy. I love to make them into miniature hot pockets!!

  2. Okay Jackie,
    I have a Weight Watchers Chili (got it from Dora) that would go great with biscuits.

    1 lb ground turkey
    1/2 chopped onion
    1 can chili beans
    1 can chili or mexican style tomatoes
    1/2 pkg dry Ranch dressing
    2 tsp chili powder
    salt/pepper to taste
    1 can corn, undrained
    Brown turkey and onion. Combine meat mixture and all other ingredients in dutch oven and cook for 30 min on 375.
    1 cup=2 points.
    Enjoy...mine is cooking NOW!

  3. Hi Jackie
    I came up with this recipe a few years ago. I think you'll like it.

    Stuffed Mediterranean Biscuit Cups

    1 (4.5-oz.) jar Green Giant Sliced Mushrooms, drained, chopped small
    1(6-oz.) jar Cento Marinated Artichoke Hearts, drained, chopped small
    1 ½ oz. Hormel Sliced Pepperoni, chopped small
    1 large clove of garlic, minced
    1 cup Sargento Pizza Double Cheese Fancy Shredded
    1 (12 oz.) can Pillsbury Refrigerated Big Country Biscuits

    Heat oven to 400oF. Grease 10 muffin cups. In a large bowl combine mushrooms, artichokes, pepperoni, garlic and cheese.

    Separate dough into 10 biscuits. Place 1 biscuit in each greased muffin cup; firmly
    press in bottom and up sides forming a ¼ inch rim. Spoon about 3 heaping tablespoons
    of mushroom mixture into each biscuit-lined cup. *Use all filling.

    Bake at 400oF for 14-16 minutes or until edges of biscuits are golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from pan. Serve hot.

    *Biscuit cups will appear very full but as they cook the biscuit will form a cup to hold it all.

    I used a food processor to chop all ingredients.

  4. This recipe looks so good, I noted it down to give it a try. Sorry to say, I don't often buy canned or frozen bread doughs so I am not able to pass on a recipe to you ladies. I can say that I love biscuits, homemade, with chicken fried steak and mashed potatoes. Great giveaway thanks to you and the sponser.

  5. Yum!! These all look good--I like to stuff pizza sauce and cheese in biscuits or cresents and bake as directed. The kids love them for dinner.

  6. Mmmm, I would just like to bake them and spread with butter and a nice hot cup of tea - CAS snack :o)

    What a lovely giveaway, thank you.

  7. Love to used in chicken and dumplings faster for me and so good.

  8. Awesome! I think they'd be great for a quick breakfast before class!

  9. I'm a plain person when it comes to biscuits. I just like them fresh from the oven any time of day with a bit of butter on them.

  10. I love biscuits with sausage and country gravy for a special breakfast! I would love to use these to make that with.

  11. I would just put a bit of shaved ham & cheese on them. They're good like that :)

  13. I'm a purist - love my biscuits with butter and honey or fresh berry jam! If I want them for dinner I sometimes sprinkle on a bit of parmesan and Italian herbs :)

  14. Since i've retired I don't cook much anymore - but I'd love these biscuits for breakfast with bacon and eggs, or for dinner with gravy!

  15. I split the biscuit in half. Sprinkle with cheese, replace the top. I put on fresh chopped rosemary and cracked black pepper. Bake as normal.

  16. Mmmm that looks so good I just might have to try it!

  17. MMMMM I love a warm biscuit with butter and jam.

  19. When I saw the word biscuit----all of a sudden I had a craving for strawberry shortcake--so that's what I would say is my favourite dish made with biscuits! I'm going to have a giveaway on my blog up this week too ---- Blogspark must love us!

  20. that recipe looks yummy! My favorite way to eat biscuits is right by themselves, hot with melted butter and maybe a touch of jelly. Pure enjoyment and probably why my scale says what it does :)

  21. The grands would be perfect as the topping of a chicken pot pie or casserole.
