Today we had a bunch of neighborhood kids at our house just hanging out (because that’s what summers are for!). When lunch time came around, I could tell that they would either start filling up on random snacks from the pantry, or I could fix up something warm and irresistible. 

Since school just got out, they are TIRED of cold sandwiches. Something warm and made by mom or dad is exactly what my kids are craving these days.

Problem is… I’m still tired of prepping lunches! So, I didn’t want to make their usual lunch either! I know they would complain and I’m positive we’d have more wasted food.

When I make turkey and cheese biscuits, there are NEVER any  leftovers! No wasted food, no complaining, no tired and hungry kids. That’s how I like it in my house!

Back when I was a kid, I remember hearing my mom talk about how feeding kiddos made her happy. She LOVED making food that kids enjoyed and, while I did’t understand it then, I totally get it now. Fueling kids up so they can get through their day truly is a great feeling (especially when they crave what you make!).

To make turkey and cheese biscuits, you’ll need a can of flakey Pillsbury biscuits. Why? Because they’re so easy to pull apart! One half is the top of the sandwich and one half is the bottom. 

Watch how they are made!

Prefer ham over turkey? 

GO FOR IT!

Is Swiss cheese more your thing?

Trust me, they’re always delicious especially if you make them exactly how you like!

One thing I do recommend is eating them straight out of the oven. Ok, ok, ok, you can let them cool for a minute but they are best straight out of the oven. 

Your house will smell like biscuits, you’ll have melty cheese, warm turkey… oh man! These are the BEST! 

Did I mention that you could eat them for breakfast too? Oh yes! Who are we to judge? 

Can you imagine waking up to the smell of fresh biscuits in the morning? I certainly can!
