Why a PINK chef's coat?

Simply put, I carry my Dad's legacy with me through my cookbook, cooking and everyday I am writing my food columns, he is always with me. I carry my Mom with me through a silent reminder of her struggle with breast cancer that took her life, as well as the lives of many other women who have dealt with, and are still dealing with, this horrible affliction. Besides, why not pink? It makes a man look good!

Beef Rarebit Biscuits

These great, cheesy tasting game day snacks are prepared easier if you do the cheese/meat mixture ahead of time so that when you make the biscuits, it will be cold and thick enough to scoop into each prepared biscuit. A great mixture of meat and cheese, all encased in a warm biscuit. What else could you ask for?

Ingredients

For 4 Serving(s)

Recipe

  • ounce(s) ground beef
  • 1/2 cup(s) beer, your preference
  • 1/2 cup(s) milk
  • 4 slices American cheese, diced
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 biscuit recipe
  • 1 tablespoon(s) Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon(s) dried, crushed thyme

Beef Rarebit Biscuits Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, over medium heat, cook ground beef with beer until completely cooked, stirring to break up. The beer should be evaporated. Drain excess fat and liquid from saucepan. While still on the heat. add the milk and cheese, stirring to combine. Cook and stir frequently until the cheese has melted and sauce has thickened. Use another slice or two of cheese if needed to thicken. Remove from heat, season to taste and transfer to a bowl to cool slightly before refrigerating to become completely cooled and thickened.
  2. Follow your favorite biscuit recipe(or find the perfect recipe at my blog, theyankeechef.blogspot.com), rolling out dough to about a half inch thickness. Cut out 8 circles of dough with a 3-inch cookie cutter or glass rim. You can even choose a larger cutter, but remember the larger the biscuit, the less of them you will have. Place dough circles on an ungreased baking pan, lightly moisten with water and dollop a tablespoon or more of the Rarebit mixture into the center of each biscuit. Place another dough disc on top, flatten slightly and press a very fine, but firm, edge to seal. Poke a fork into the top of each biscuit and brush either melted butter or milk over the tops of each filled biscuit. Mix the Parmesan cheese with thyme and lightly sprinkle over the top of each biscuit. Cook 8-10 minutes, or until nicely browned on top. Remove to cool slightly before serving.
