The best, most wonderful thing about these recipes is really twofold: 1.) If you can turn on a stove, you can make these, and 2) Both of them require only 3 ingredients!
This first one was a recipe Nathan's mom shared with me this past weekend in passing. She said the woman who made them for her used Hershey bars and Crescent rolls. Well, I didn't have either of these, but I did have biscuits and chocolate chips. I just couldn't wait to run home and try these out. Enter: Biscuit Roll-Ups w/ Chocolate Filling (aka: Tastes like a funnel cake to me!).
Biscuit Roll-Ups w/ Chocolate Filling (inspired by: Nathan's mom, who tried them from some lady in Canada)
- 1 can Pillsbury flaky layers biscuits (I had the 8-biscuit can, but you can adjust this based on how many you need to make)
- Chocolate chips
- Powdered sugar
- Flatten biscuits with your hand (until they are big enough to put chocolate chips in them and roll up, burrito style)
- Place chocolate chips in center of biscuit (use as many or as little as you like!)
- Roll up biscuit, burrito style. Pinch ends closed so that the chocolate doesn't ooze out.
- Place seam side down in a lightly greased baking dish.
- Bake according to biscuit package directions (until biscuits are brown and not doughy)
- Remove from oven, sprinkle with powdered sugar
This other recipe was one I threw together accidentally, not thinking it would be that good. I had some leftover frozen spinach from a recipe I made and some fresh tomatoes and shredded mozzarella. Enter: Warm Spinach Salad (aka: Would make a perfect side dish!)
Warm Spinach Salad
*As to not be a fibber, this recipe does contain more than 3 ingredients, but I'm sure you have garlic, onion and olive oil so I didn't really count those. :)
**This little recipe made enough to fill 1 small cereal bowl, so you might need to adjust the ingredients accordingly.
- 5 oz. frozen whole leaf spinach, thawed, drained and chopped coarsely.
- 1 tomato, sliced
- shredded mozzarella
- 1 tsp garlic, minced
- 1/2 white onion, diced
- extra virgin olive oil
- Pour some olive oil in a pan and let it get warm. Add the garlic and onions, and let them sweat.
- Add in spinach, and heat through. Your kitchen will start smelling awfully good about right now.
- Remove from heat, and place in a bowl. Top with fresh tomatoes and mozzarella cheese.
