BBQ Beef Puffs and Mandarin Orange Salad

Cute name we came up with, huh?  I like it.  Anyway, this was super easy and very good!  We'll be doing this again for dinner for sure! 2 recipes with this post... must be the luck of the Irish ; )  And a pic of Aiden in his St. Patty's Day gear!  He has the Irish Eyes - no question there!  We LOVE being Irish : )

BBQ Beef Puffs
1 can refrigerated flaky biscuits - we used butter flaky pillsbury
½ lb ground chuck - we use 92% lean
Barbeque sauce - we use Jack Daniels #7 (blue label), works for me with low sugar
1 c shredded cheddar - We used 2% sharp cheddar
Pam Original Spray

Spray muffin pan with Pam spray.  Pat biscuits into flat 5” circles (or a bit bigger than your palm). Press lightly in greased muffin pan. Brown beef in a large skillet; drain. Stir in desired amount of bbq sauce (I used a bit more than half a cup); spoon into muffin cups. Sprinkle muffins and beef with shredded cheese. Bake @ 375° for 20min. Cool in pan for 5 min. before serving.

Mandarin Orange Salad
1 bag of hearts of romaine lettuce leaves
1 14oz. can of No Sugar Added Mandarin Oranges (Del Monte brand has this - they are awesome!)
1 bag of honey roasted sliced almonds (found in the produce section, only 1 gram of sugar per serving)
8oz bottle of Ken's Lite Vidalia Onion Dressing

Drain oranges.  Mix all ingredients together and serve cold.  I used about 3/4's of the bottle of dressing and all of the almonds.  Very good!!!
