Taco Puffs

I got this recipe from a friend years ago and still make these cheesy sandwiches regularly. I serve them for dinner along with a steaming bowl of soup or fresh green salad. Any leftovers taste even better the next day for lunch. A helpful hint: Plain refrigerated biscuits seal together better than buttermilk types. —Jan Schmid Hibbing Minnesota

    8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 envelope taco seasoning
  • 2 tubes (16.3 ounces each) large refrigerated flaky biscuits
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 400°. In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink, 5-7 minutes, breaking into crumbles; drain. Add taco seasoning and prepare according to package directions. Cool slightly.
  • Flatten half the biscuits into 4-in. circles; arrange on greased 15x10x1-in. baking pans. Spoon 1/4 cup meat mixture onto each circle; sprinkle each with 1/4 cup cheese. Flatten remaining biscuits; place over filling and pinch edges to seal tightly.
  • Bake until golden brown, 12-15 minutes.
  • Freeze option: Freeze cooled pastries in an airtight container. To use, microwave pastry on high on a microwave-safe plate until heated through.
