Ham & Cheddar Scones

Yum! These are easy to make and a big hit with adults and kids alike. They are great for breakfast, a quick lunch, or as a fancy accompaniment to a dinner. I found the recipe in either Family Circle magazine or Better Homes and Gardens. Ooops! I can't remember. I've already made these twice and will be making them again soon. I may add about a 1/2 t. of salt next time.

Ham & Cheddar Scones
1 3/4 c. AP flour
1/4. c Whole wheat flour
2 t. baking powder
1 t. sugar
1/2 t. baking soda
1/8 t. salt
1/2 c. butter
1/2 c. cheddar
1/4 c. diced ham
1 t. dried dill
3/4 c. sour cream
1 egg
1 T. dijon

Combine dry ingredients and blend in butter with pastry blender. Stir in cheese, ham and dill. Combine egg, sour cream and dijon. Fold in until just combined. Roll dough onto floured surface and cut out. Or just form into biscuit shapes by hand :) Bake at 375 for 18-20 minutes.

Mexican Flat bread Pizza

Well, folks, we have a new family favorite. This meal is quick and easy and we LOVE it! If you are in a real hurry, you can prepare and refrigerate the beans and meat. I have made a few changes from the original recipe. These are great served with salsa and sour cream.

Mexican Flat bread Pizza

1 lb. ground turkey
1 pkg. taco seasoning (I use homemade)

1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
3/4 c. salsa

8 oz. Colby-jack cheese, shredded
1 pkg. Grands biscuits

Salsa and sour cream for serving

Preheat oven to 375. Brown turkey in skillet, and add taco seasoning as directed on package. Meanwhile combine beans and salsa in blender or food processor and blend. Roll biscuits on floured surface until they are about 1/4" in thickness. Bake for about 5 minutes until just turning golden. Remove from oven. Spread each with bean mixture, sprinkle with meat and cheese. Return to oven for about 3 minutes. Serve!
Greta and Miles rating: They both love this and usually eat an entire pizza each!
