10 servings


  • ¾ pound ground beef

  • ¾ pound bulk pork sausage

  • 1 medium onion, chopped

  • cup chopped green onions

  • 1 garlic clove, minced

  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley

  • 1 tablespoon water

  • 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour

  • ½ teaspoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon pepper

  • 2 (12 ounce) cans buttermilk biscuits


  1. In a large skillet, brown beef and sausage over medium heat; drain. Add onions and garlic; cook until tender. Stir in parsley, water, flour, baking powder, salt and pepper. Heat through. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.

  2. On a floured surface, pat 10 biscuits into 4-in. circles. Top each with about 1/3 cup of the meat mixture. Pat remaining biscuits into 5-in. circles and place over filling; seal edges with water. Press edges together with a fork dipped in flour; pierce the top.

  3. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 375 degrees F for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown and filling is hot.
