Cheesy Florentine Biscuit Cups

March 22, 2011 1:37 pm · Posted by Lauren G

I looove refrigerated Pillsbury biscuits, mostly because I like popping open the can, but they're also delicious and easy to make. I wanted something different than just your everyday biscuit, so I looked up some recipes on the Pillsbury website. I had most of the ingredients on hand (with a few substitutions) so I chose this one.

2 tablespoons unsalted or salted butter

1 box (9 oz) frozen chopped spinach

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1 can (16.3 oz) Pillsbury® Grands!® Flaky Layers refrigerated original biscuits (8 biscuits)

4 oz thick-cut slices Canadian bacon, cut into 1/4-inch cubes (I used ham lunchmeat)

4 eggs

2 cups shredded mild Cheddar cheese (8 oz)

Heat oven to 350°F. Spray muffin cups non-stick cooking spray.

In 10-inch skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in spinach, salt and pepper. Cook 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally and breaking up spinach if necessary, until spinach is hot. Remove from heat; set aside.

Separate dough into 12 biscuits by peeling apart the layers. (This part is a little tricky…the original recipe uses 8 jumbo muffin cups, but I only have the regular 12 cup muffin tin). Use 2/3 of a biscuit for one muffin cup. Place biscuit in each muffin cup, pressing dough 3/4 of the way up sides of cups. Place heaping 1 tablespoon ham on dough in bottom of each cup. Top each with spinach mixture. Using finger or end of wooden spoon handle, make 1 1/2-inch-wide indentation in center of each cup.

Break eggs into bowl and beat with a fork to mix whites and yolks evenly. Divide evenly into muffin cups. Top each egg with 1/4 cup cheese (cups will be full). (If using custard cups, place on large cookie sheet with sides.)

Bake 15-20 minutes or centers feel firm when touched and biscuits are golden brown. Cool 5 minutes. Remove from pan to serving plates. Serve warm.

Pillsbury dough is so good and full of partially hydrogenated soybean oil, six different kinds of -ucrose and 10% lard out of a pig's ass.

I make something similar to this, but I use flattened wheat bread. Pretty damn yummy. :)

I made a modified version of these... I didn't have any spinach so I grilled a variety of different toppings such as onion, mushrooms, baked potato (cut up into little pieces), leftover boiled cauliflower, and then used olives both green stuffed and kalamata, ham, barbeque chicken, some fresh herbs like coriander and rosemary and they taste great!

We had fun combining the different ingredients into our own special little cup.

We don't have access to Pilsbury dough in Australia so i whipped up a simple dough recipe which could have been thinner but they still worked well.
