Stockpile Recipe

Southwest Bubble Bake

Casseroles are always a hit with my crew, so I am always on the lookout for something new to try. I always love them too because most casseroles can be made ahead of time and baked off as I get closer to dinner time. In fact many casseroles can be made into freezer meals which saves me even more time!

So what’s for dinner tonight?

I was looking through my stockpile yesterday and noticed that I have quite a bit of pudding that I need to use. So I was looking on Pinterest for some ideas to get some of this pudding mix used up and found this recipe that looked yummy and easy and of course, uses some common stockpile ingredients – pudding mix, Cool Whip, cream cheese, powered sugar, and shredded coconut (I think I have some coconut in my pantry somewhere…). Anyways simple easy dessert! YUM!

Strawberry 2 Ingredient Fudge Via Cookies & Cups

If you have a stockpile of canned frosting (Betty Crocker, Pillsbury, etc) then you may want to give this recipe idea a try. It uses just two ingredients – canned strawberry frosting and melted white chocolate chips. How easy is that? Perfect for Valentines day. And you can use other types of frosting and chips too – think chocolate frosting + chocolate chips, lemon frosting + white chocolate chips, or even Funfetti frosting + white chocolate chips….yum!

Monkey Bread

Pin It

I actually learned how to make monkey bread out of canned biscuit dough back in 8th grade home-economics class. My teacher Mrs. Emerson seemed to have a million and one recipes to use canned biscuit dough…pizza crusts, donuts, casseroles, you name it! And since I can get deals on Pillsbury biscuits quite frequently with sales and coupons I always seem to have some on hand.

And yes…you CAN freeze Pillsbury canned biscuit dough. I have been doing it for 8+ years and they come out just fine. The flaky layers type biscuits (and crescent rolls) tend not to be quite as flaky but they taste just fine. To thaw frozen biscuit dough I leave a can out on the counter for about 1-2 hours or overnight in the refrigerator and they are good to go!

This recipe comes straight from Pillsbury and just couldn’t be easier!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2cup granulated sugar
  • 1teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2cans (16.3 oz each) Pillsbury® Grands!® Homestyle refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
  • 1/2cup chopped walnuts, if desired
  • 1/2cup raisins, if desired
  • 1cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 3/4cup butter or margarine, melted

DIRECTIONS

  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease 12-cup fluted tube pan with shortening or cooking spray. In large -storage plastic food bag, mix granulated sugar and cinnamon.
  2. Separate dough into 16 biscuits; cut each into quarters. Shake in bag to coat. Arrange in pan, adding walnuts and raisins among the biscuit pieces.
  3. In small bowl, mix brown sugar and butter; pour over biscuit pieces.
  4. Bake 28 to 32 minutes or until golden brown and no longer doughy in center. Cool in pan 10 minutes. Turn upside down onto serving plate; pull apart to serve. Serve warm.
