Back in the day (Ie: pre-kids) I read Bon Appetit religiously.
And actually made the dinners.
Three course dinners on Monday night.
Who knew then what a luxury that was?!
I am pretty sure my husband still hasn’t figured out how lucky he was.
Who I am kidding..How lucky  he is?! 😉

Anyways… Andy would always tease me by saying,”Good bread” in response to my dinner. It was a joke because I would have slaved away at all these courses and yet, he would praise the Pillsbury Crescent rolls I had to admit, they do make a damn good roll!

One thing is for sure…We always have fun!

I have become a fan of their Simply line now as I have learned more and more about ingredients and try to live ( a little) simpler.

I made this little Ham & Cheddar Biscuits on a night Andy was out of town (so I never heard “Good bread”), but it was a ridiculously easy thing I could make for both the boys and me to enjoy.

I hope on a busy weeknight they can save the day for you too!



Here’s What You Need: (Makes 5)
1 package Simply Pillsbury biscuits
Deli ham (about 1/2 of a thicker slice per sandwich)
Dijon mustard
4 pieces of good quality cheddar cheese
Baby spinach

Here’s What You Do:
Preheat the oven to 375. Layer a 1/4 of a piece of cheddar followed by  half of a piece of ham on one biscuit and then top with spinach and then a dollop of dijon and top with another biscuit. Follow this same pattern until you have five sandwiches. Bake for about 15 minutes, stopping midway to push the tops down so they don’t spill over. You may want to check on them at 12 minutes.

*These are about 10 grams of fat each so eat just one. This was hard for me 😉

Kid Tip:
This is a great little sandwich for kids small hands! Put the spinach in the middle so they can’t see it. Sneaky, I know!

  1. Love the addition of spinach. I just think spinach turns a dish into something even more magical!

  2. It’s strange how, before I got pregnant, I was so obsessed with what would happen to my body, and how much sleep I would lose, but now that I’m a mom I miss long slow dinners more than anything else from my pre-mom life. Funny how different it is than you think it will be!
    and These little sandwiches look delicious :)

      So true. I feel like even when my kids are not there I still eat super fast since I am in the habit of doing it at home!
