Thanksgiving is a time to gather friends and family and say thank you for the things you're the most appreciative for ... and let's be honest, we're all pretty damn thankful for Stan Lee. Dress up your traditional Thanksgiving table and celebrate our favorite comic book genius by bringing out a basket of warm and cheesy Captain America bread!
In order to whip up these steaming hot, fluffy, cheesy treats, you will need:
- 2 cans of premade biscuits
- 1 8 oz bag of shredded mozzarella cheese
- Red food coloring
- Blue food coloring
- 1 Tablespoon butter, melted
- You will also need:
- Baking sheet
- Small star cookie cutter
- Rolling pin
Start by preheating your oven to 350F/175C.
Open your cans of biscuits and pull them out. The cans I was using had 8 biscuits per tube, for a total of 16. Divide your biscuit dough balls into three piles, with two piles of 6 biscuits each and one pile of four biscuits, and mush them together to create three dough balls.
As you're mushing your dough balls together, add in enough food coloring to one of your 6-biscuit balls to create one ball of red. Add enough blue dye to your dough ball of four biscuits to create a small ball of blue. Leave your second 6-biscuit dough ball white.
Pinch off roughly 1 tablespoon of red dough and roll it flat until it's about 1/4 of an inch thick and circular.
Place a tablespoon of mozzarella cheese in the center of your flat red dough.
Moisten the edges of your dough with your melted butter and fold the edges up and over your cheese, sealing it in.
Press your now cheese-filled dough ball into a circular patty shape.
Pinch out another ball of red dough as well as balls of white and blue dough and roll them out into 1/4-inch circles, getting progressively smaller.
Using your melted butter as glue, stack your colored dough circles on top of each other.
Press them down on top of your original red cheese-filled patty and pinch the dough edges to seal together tightly.
Take a small piece of white dough and roll it as thin as you can and cut out a small star. Use your butter to glue the star to the center of your shield.
Place your shield rolls onto your baking sheet, making sure to space them out with at least one inch between the rolls.
Brush your rolls with melted butter and bake for 12-15 minutes or until the star and white sections of your shields are golden. Your rolls will puff slightly during baking.
Serve your rolls immediately with butter and enjoy!
Mmmm ... super delicious!
Awwww yes ... so tasty!
