Happy (early) Halloween!!
I made the annual pumpkin heads early this year since Q was home from school and didn't know if he would be back before Halloween. Looking through my posts I don't see that I posted about these in 2014...but I find that unlikely- maybe it's under a different blog title. Or I made them and kept them a secret from all of you! ;)
This is so easy- especially if you make the meat mixture in advance. Then all you are doing is rolling out the biscuits & baking. Great for a portable lunch or supper.
I always make too much meat mix- I just serve that on the side.
He said some of them looked like Michael Myers this year from the Halloween Movies.
Q's pumpkin head...
The original recipe comes from taste of home magazine: HERE
The real recipe:
Fry some meat, season to taste.
I used Salt, onion and garlic powder, powdered mustard and Worcestershire sauce.
Use whatever you like to season it. You could probably use ground Turkey or Chicken if that's your thang.
Once the meat cooks up a bit, add the carrots and minced garlic.
Once there is no more pink add your cheese and mustard.
I can't say I have measurements really...
I used 1.5 lbs beef, I shredded carrots on my box grater, maybe a tablespoon of minced garlic, sprinkled the seasoning then a handful of cheese- adjust to however you like to flavor your meat =)
You can probably even use a taco seasoning mix if the mood strikes.
Buy some jumbo refrigerated biscuits.
I rolled them out so they were 5-6 inches in diameter.
Spoon about 1/2 cup of meat then add the top rolled out biscuit.
I cut pumpkin faces out for mine.
Bake on a greased pan (I lined mine with parchment for easy cleanup)
@ 350* for 20 mins
Make some for Halloween this year!
