Philly cheesesteak biscuit bites

September 8, 2018

NFL Sunday football starts tomorrow! While I am not a die hard football fan, I have over the last 4 years really come to enjoy cozy Sunday afternoons watching football. I like putting out snacks in the afternoon, sometimes my husband might have a friend stop by for one of the games. It’s easy to just put out chips or order pizza but I generally have no self control with those things.. I created these Philly cheesesteak biscuit bites and they are so tasty, easy to make and just 2 smart points each. With something like this, I can enjoy a couple and then move on.. Here is to Sunday football, chilly days with fall candles burning, tasty snacks and roasts cooking in the oven! 🙂


Philly cheese steak biscuit bites
Author: 
Recipe type: Appetizer
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 10
 
2 freestyle SP, 2SP/2PP each
Ingredients
  • 1- 7.5oz pack of biscuits, there are 10 small biscuits in this pack
  • ½ cup diced green pepper
  • ½ cup diced onion, I used red onion
  • 3 oz deli style roast beef
  • 1.5 oz (about 6 Tbsp) reduced fat shredded mozzarella (I used Trader Joe's)
  • Egg whites for brushing tops
Instructions
  1. Dice your pepper and onion and heat in a large frying pan over medium heat, I used cooking spray in my pan. *Use oil if you wish but it will add a few points overall. Saute veggies for 5-10 minutes.
  2. Cut up your deli roast beef into small pieces and add to your veggies, cook for 5 minutes then set aside.
  3. Preheat oven to 375F and spray a round 8 inch dish or similar with some non stick spray.
  4. Cut your 10 biscuits open and flatten pieces out. Place a spoonful of your roast beef mix onto one of your dough pieces, top with a little cheese, only about ½ Tbsp then place other biscuit piece on top and pinch seems to close. *This will be your hardest part of the recipe, it requires a little patience getting all the biscuits filled and sealed.
  5. Place filled biscuits into your dish, brush with some egg whites (or a whole egg is fine too) and bake for 20-22 minutes until tops are golden brown. Serve warm.
  6. *You can use the bigger biscuits packs just know that your points will be higher and you will need more roast beef/veggies, also you can use any kind of cheese you wish, I used the reduced fat mozzarella to keep points low.

    Drizzle Me Skinny!!! I made your recipe for Philly Cheesesteak Biscuit Bites yesterday for our two rival NFL teams (Cleveland Browns against Pittsburgh Steelers) for my hubby’s guy friends and they were gone off the plate in seconds. Plus, the guys all asked for the recipe. Your biscuit bites were the hit of the game party. I definitely will be making these often. I also put out dipping sauce of Boathouse Ranch Dressing which accentuated the flavorful filling …yummy.
    I believe I got that idea from your “Philly Steak Bubble Up” recipe. Your the Best. Thanks for all your delicious recipes that keep me on track on my Weight loss journey

    I could only find the Pillsbury Country Biscuit dough (not sure if the Great Value is available in Cdn Walmarts), and I estimated 6 tbsp of light mozza at 1/3 cup for the recipe builder on the WW app and the recipe came to 4SP per biscuit. Am I doing something wrong, or is the difference from the Great Value brand to Pillsbury brand that different?

      Hi, yes the biscuits are different, the ones I buy in the U.S are a 7.5oz package and the whole tube is 17SP, I also used Trader Joe’s reduced fat mozzarella which is only 2SP for the 6Tbsp
