Easy dinners are my favorite. Finding a recipe like this is gold:
The Original Pin
BBQ Boat Gold. That's what Amanda thought as well. She says, "I saw these and figured they would be a yummy easy meal for my boyfriend and I. Little did I know, I was creating atomic BBQ bombs in the oven..."
Mushroom clouds of dough and BBQ. So what happened here?
Amanda got looking at the original recipe to check what had turned her BBQ boats into BBQ bombs and found what may have been the detonator. The recipe calls for "1 (12oz.) tube refrigerated biscuits" but taking a look at the picture in the recipe we find an additional secret to making this recipe work as shown...do you see it?
The biscuits aren't just your normal everyday size biscuits, their the jr. size, which is why Amanda's full size biscuits morphed into atomic proportions.
How to fix this?
- Looking at the original recipe, you don't want the dough to be too thick in the pan so that it will form the right sized boats. As all biscuit dough is not created equal, you may have to bring out the inner mad scientist for a minute or two. The dough in the recipe appears to be about 1/4" thick in the cups and they don't reach all the way to the top. If the biscuit size you're using gives you more dough than that, pull a glop off and reshape the dough in the cup. Later you can combine all the extra "glops" into biscuits so dough isn't wasted.
- If you don't want to be the mad scientist, buy the Jr. size or cut the regular biscuits down by about 1/2.
