I thought I had . . .


. . . some frozen pastry, but it was unusable when I opened it.  The problem was I had already cooked the ground beef, mixed it with barbecue sauce and had cheese standing by for my next batch of Beef N Cheese Fold-Over.

I needed a quick crust, so the first thing I thought of was to make a biscuit dough.

I got out my  Betty Crocker Cookbook and followed the recipe for baking powder biscuits.  I made a double batch of biscuit dough since I had cooked two pounds of hamburger.

I wanted to make six individual "Fold-Overs", so I cut the dough into six portions.  (There are 5 portions in the photo because I had already used one).

I rolled each portion out into a rough circle.  I put 1/6th of the meat mixture in the middle and sprinkled with grated cheese.  I then folded the dough over the meat and cheese.

I had the oven preheated to 400 degrees.  I baked the fold-overs for 25 to 30 minutes, until they were brown and the biscuit dough was cooked.

Each one fit nicely in a one-quart baggie.  I put 5 in the freezer and had one for dinner.  This is one item I don't use a crock pot to reheat.  I defrost, then reheat in the microwave.

It turned out great and extra yummy with the homemade bread.  Sometimes a mishap makes cooking even better than you expected!

That looks great. I'd love to try that, making your own dough may take more time but I think this made it even better.
