Jazz up biscuit buns and fill them with the works including spiced-up burgers, cheesy sauce, bacon, avocado and tomatoes. This Pillsbury Bake-Off recipe is by Pam Wilkinson of Tracy.
1/2 cup crushed nacho- flavored tortilla chips (about 25 chips)
One 16.3-ounce can Pillsbury Grands! Homestyle refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
3/4 cup sliced mild banana pepper rings (from 16-ounce jar), drained
1 pound lean (at least 80 percent) ground beef
3/4 cup nacho cheese sauce or dip
1/4 teaspoon McCormick Chili Powder
1/4 teaspoon McCormick Ground Cumin
2 ounces (1/4 of 8-ounce package) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
1/3 cup diced seeded tomato
1/4 cup crumbled cooked bacon
1 medium ripe avocado, pitted, peeled and diced
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Place crushed nacho chips in shallow dish. Press both sides of each biscuit into crushed chips. Bake biscuits on ungreased cookie sheet 13 to 17 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack.
Meanwhile, finely chop enough banana pepper rings to equal 1/4 cup. In large bowl, mix ground beef, 1/4 cup of the nacho cheese sauce, 1/4 cup chopped banana peppers, chili powder, and cumin. Shape mixture into 8 patties, 3 1/2 inches in diameter.
In a nonstick skillet, cook patties over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, turning once, or until meat thermometer inserted in center of patties reads 160 degrees.
In small microwavable bowl, microwave remaining 1/2 cup nacho cheese sauce on high 30 to 45 seconds or until warm; stir. Split biscuits. Lightly spread cream cheese on cut sides of biscuit halves. Top bottom of each biscuit with burger, nacho cheese sauce, onion, tomato, bacon, avocado, remaining banana pepper rings and biscuit tops.
