Friday’s Recipe

Posted on

Tonight my girls and I are going to the Colorado Rockies game tonight… and watch the fireworks afterwards 🙂 So I thought today’s recipe should be something that reminds me of baseball games. These would be great for watching the game at home or for your tailgating parties.  LET’S GO ROCKIES!!!!

Chicago-Style Hot Dog Bites
2 pkg (12 oz/340 g each) refrigerated flaky buttermilk biscuits
2 tbsp (10 mL) poppy seeds
3 hot dogs
2 small whole dill pickles (about 1/2 cup/125 mL coarsely chopped)
1 small onion
4 oz (125 g) sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup (50 mL) yellow mustard
1. Preheat oven to 400˚F (200˚C). Pull apart biscuit layers horizontally in half to form 40
biscuits. Arrange biscuits on cookie sheet or baking stone. Sprinkle with poppy seeds and
bake 13-15 minutes or until golden brown.
2. Meanwhile, cut hot dogs in half lenghtwise then crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick (6-mm)
half moons. Place hot dogs on microwave safe plate, cover and cook for 30-45 seconds or
until hot. Coarsely chop pickles and onion. Blot excess moisture from pickles using paper
towels. Seed and dice tomatoes. Combine pickles, onion and tomatoes in small bowl; mix
well and set aside. Grate cheese; set aside
3. Remove baking stone or cookie sheet from oven and set on cooling rack. Top bicuits
with hot dogs and cheese. Bake 3-4 minutes or until cheese is melted. Remove from oven;
top with vegetable mixture and drizzle with mustard. Recipe should yield 20 servings.

About tinazeien

A little about me….. I’ve worked in healthcare a little over 18 years, 5 ½ of those years working with midwives. I love being involved with families that are expecting an addition to their family! Currently I am in school working towards getting my nursing degree so I can work in labor and delivery. From there I might go into OB ultrasonography. The whole pregnancy and child birth experience is so amazing I’m finding it hard to decide exactly what I want to be when I grow up! ☺ When I’m not working or putting my nose into text books, I spend as much time as I can with my daughters who are 14 & 18 years old (teenagers are quite an adventure!) I also enjoy spending time with friends and family. As I’m sure you’ve noticed by my weekly recipes, one of my biggest passions is to cook! I love spending my weekends finding new recipes to experiment with and playing hostess at my home. Most of the recipes I am going to try to post here are on the healthier side or geared towards vegetarians but I’ll also be sneaking in a few deserts here and there…. We all need a little decadence once in a while right?! I look forward to hearing if you have enjoyed these recipes as much as my family has! Bon Appétit ☺
