Bubble Up Pizza

This was one of my FAVORITE meals growing up. Mom used to make this for us all the time and it was just soo much fun to eat! I was looking for something "different" to make for dinner this week and it dawned on me that we haven't had pizza in a while...All of these ingredients are relevant to how much you are making.


Pillsbury Buttermilk Biscuits (I used 3 tubes)
Pizza sauce
Shredded Mozz. Cheese
Pepperoni (or whatever other toppings, if using onions or peppers, sautee them first, your pizza will be really soggy if you don't)

Preheat oven to 450 (or whatever the biscuit package reads.) Put a small amount of pizza sauce in the bottom of your glass 9x13 pan. Cut your biscuits in quarters and place them in your pan. Mix pizza sauce, some of your shredded cheese, and pizza toppings together in a bowl. Pour on top of biscuits. Top with extra cheese. And bake according to package directions!

Rotisserie Crockpot Chicken

This is a recipe I printed off over the weekend at work from( It sounded amazing and I really needed to use up the whole chicken I had in my freezer. We're supposed to be getting a terrible snow storm today, so I thought a nice chicken dinner with mashed potatoes and veggies would be nice!

Here's the recipe....

4-5lb chicken
2t kosher salt
1t paprika
1t onion powder (i used garlic powder)
1/2t thyme
1t italian seasoning
1/2t cayenne pepper (i used 1t)
/2t black pepper
a pinch of chili powder
4 cloves of garlic, cracked (for stuffing)
1 yellow onion quartered (for stuffing)

Mix all the dry ingredients together. Clean your bird and dry with a paper towel. Then stuff with the garlic and onions. Then rub your spice over the whole bird. Place in your crockpot on 4 balls of foil (so your chicken isn't sitting in fat and the skin gets nice and crispy). Cook on low for 8 hours.

Dorito Casserole

So this is a recipe I got from "NewlyAshworth" on the WC nest board! I was slightly hesistant on trying it, but anything with doritos, cheese, and gr. beef is worth eating, right? This makes a 9x13 pan and David ate 1/2 of it himself! He said it tastes just like the enchiladas he used to get in Texas.

1lb ground beef, browned
1 small onion, chopped and sauteed with the beef
1 small can of diced green chiles, sauteed with the beef and onion
2 cans of cream of mushroom (or chicken) soup
1 small can of red enchilada sauce
1 bag of nacho cheese doritos, crushed
1 bag of finely shredded mexican cheese blend

Brown the ground beef with the chopped onion and green chiles. Set aside. In a large mixing bowl, combine soup and sauce. Add the ground beef mixture. In a 9x13 glass pan, layer doritos, meat mixture, cheese, doritos until you've used all your sure to END with doritos on top. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. I covered mine for 20 minutes then took the foil off and baked the last 10 minutes. ENJOY!
