Stuffed Biscuits

These stuffed biscuits are easy to make and delicious. In this recipe, store-bought refrigerated biscuits are stuffed with a flavorful ground beef mixture that’s flavored with onions, carrots, garlic, olives and a combination of spices.

 

Then they’re brushed with an egg wash and baked until golden, flaky and fabulous!

If you have any stuffed biscuits leftover, they reheat really well and make a great lunch. Just wrap them in a paper-towel and heat in the microwave for 30 seconds or so.

To make these stuffed biscuits you will need

1 tablespoon Canola Oil

1 Small Onion, finely diced

1 Carrot, small dice

2-3 Garlic Cloves, minced or grated

1 pound Lean Ground Beef (we used sirloin)

½ teaspoon Salt

½ teaspoon Dried Oregano

¼ teaspoon Ground Cumin

¼ teaspoon Black Pepper, to taste

8 ounces Tomato Sauce

¼ cup Pitted Spanish Olives, chopped

1 Egg, lightly beaten

1 tablespoon Water

8 Large Refrigerated Biscuits

All Purpose Flour, for the work surface

 

You will also need:

Large baking sheet

Parchment paper, to prevent sticking and easy clean-up

Rolling pin

Pastry brush

 

Prep Work

Combine the salt, dried oregano, cumin and black pepper in a small bowl.

 

Dice the onions and the carrots. They will go in at the same time, so keep them in the same bowl.

 

I like using glass nesting bowls for my prep work. They help me keep everything organized, taking the stress out of cooking.

 

The only prep left is to mince the garlic and chop the olives. Slice the olives in half before chopping to keep them from rolling all over the place!

 

Finally, grab the rest of the ingredients, keep them handy and now you’re ready to cook.

 

All the ingredients for these stuffed biscuits portioned out in glass bowls and arranged on a wood cutting board.

 

Make the ground beef filling

This ground beef filling is really easy to make and it takes less than half an hour. It does need to cool before we stuff the biscuits but that doesn’t take too long either.

 

 

  • Then, add the onions and carrots to the skillet and cook for 3 minutes until the onions start to soften, stirring frequently.

 

  • Add the garlic and cook 1 minute, stirring frequently.

 

  • Raise the heat to medium-high and add the ground beef and the prepared seasoning mix. Stir to incorporate all of the ingredients, while breaking up any large pieces of beef with a wooden spoon or spatula.

 

  • Cook the beef for approximately 5-6 minutes to brown, stirring frequently.

 

  • Add the tomato sauce and chopped olives to the skillet and stir to combine. Lower the heat to medium-low, cover the skillet and cook the ground beef for 12-15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

 

  • Taste the beef and add salt, if needed. As a reference, we add a couple of pinches to ours.

 

Once the meat is done cooking, remove the skillet from the heat, uncover and allow the ground beef to cool. Give it a good stir every once in a while, it will help the steam escape and it will cool faster.

 

While the ground beef filling is cooling set up to stuff the biscuits

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper to avoid sticking and for easy clean-up.
  • Prepare the egg wash: Crack the egg into a small bowl and add 1 tablespoon of water. Beat the egg with a fork until scrambled.

 

Stuff the biscuits

Work with one biscuit at a time. Split the biscuit in half by gently separating it in the middle. You will end up with two flatter pieces. Sprinkle some flour on you work surface to help with sticking.

Flatten each biscuit half into approximately 4 inch rounds. Roll each piece out lightly with a rolling pin. Rub a little flour on your rolling pin too.

Bake the biscuits for approximately 15-18 minutes or until they are a nice golden color. Keep an eye on them. Turn on the oven light and look in after 10 minutes or so. Then you can gauge the remaining time from there.

Cook’s Notes:

You will probably have some ground beef leftover, enough for another 3-4 biscuits. The ground beef will keep for a couple days in the refrigerator. The leftovers are great added to some pasta sauce and served over spaghetti, or in a sandwich, Sloppy Joe style.
