Here we are, another Hunk of Meat Monday recipe. This time, I’m featuring BACON! Yum!
Mini B-L-T Cups
- 16 oz. tube refrigerated biscuits
- 8 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
- 1 tomato, chopped
- 1/2 onion, chopped
- 1/2 c. shredded cheese
- 1/2 c. mayonnaise
- 1 t. dried basil
Halve biscuits horizontally by separating the layers. Pat biscuit halves into mini muffin tins that have been sprayed with non-stick vegetable spray. Combine remaining ingredients and spoon into biscuit cups. Bake at 375 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes. Makes 8 servings of 2 cups each.
Now, for my variations: My boys don’t like tomatoes, so I didn’t include them in the recipe. But I did dice some up for Boss Man to add to his cups. Also, I used Grands biscuits, so I used a normal sized muffin tin. It worked splendidly! And did I mention they were delicious!?!
Now for the frugal part:
- Biscuits – $1.50
- Bacon – $1
- Tomato – garden!
- Cheese – $2
- Total – $4.50 (the rest is all stuff I had on hand, as would most kitchens!) That’s a staggering 56 cents a serving! They’d make great appetizers, after-school snacks, or a quick, fast meal for a family on the go! Very portable!
