Destiny's Biscuit Cups

I call them the name above because I stole the recipe off of the back of my turkey bacon package and can't remember now what they were called! This recipe is so easy and so delicious that my friends from work made me give them the recipe. They make for a great breakfast or appetizer for any party.

1 10oz can of biscuits
1 block of cream cheese
2 eggs
1 cup mozzarella/feta cheese (I used ½ feta & ½  mozzarella. You can use your fav. cheese but these are yummy!)

2 tbsp of milk
¼ cup of green onions (I used white onions because I didn't have green)

1 muffin pan
5 slices of turkey bacon

In a small bowl throughly beat your milk, cream cheese, and eggs.  Add your green onions and cheese into the bowl and stir lightly. 

Cook 5 pieces of turkey bacon until crisp. Chop up into small pieces.

Grease your muffin pan and place each biscuit of dough in the slots.  Press firmly in the middle bringing the dough up around the sides and about ¼ in over the tops. 

Sprinkle the bottom of each cup with a little bit of turkey bacon.  Spoon your cheese mixture (a little more than ¾ full) into each cup.

Cook in the oven at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Keep an eye on your biscuits because all ovens are different and they may cook faster.

Press a few pieces of chopped turkey into the tops of each biscuit and ENJOY!

Easy Aloha Salad

I spent about $7 for a salad like this at the mall the other night. A few simple ingredients and I made my own at home and I like it better than the one at the mall! I even like it without a drop of dressing! So if you're like me and are trying to eat a few more salads this year...this one is simple and yummy!

Just add as much or as little as you want of the following items:
chopped Romaine lettuce
chopped deli ham
shredded mozzarella cheese
pineapple tidbits
basil (I used maybe 1/4 tsp. dried basil for a personal sized salad)
