3 Food Hack Recipes for Beginners

Biscuit Bowls


1 can of biscuits


Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray underside a standard muffin pan with nonstick cooking spray.

Take one biscuit and spread it out with your hand. Widen and flatten it. Form that biscuit over the underside of the muffin pan and repeat with the remaining biscuits. Alternate each cup so that the biscuits have enough room to rise.

Bake for 13 to 17 minutes or until golden brown.

Spread your favorite jam or butter on the biscuit bowls. You can even add scramble eggs inside the bowl.

Walking Taco


1 pound lean ground beef or turkey

4 (2.5 ounce) packages your favorite corn chips

1 cup chopped fresh tomato

1 package taco seasoning mix

1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

2 cups shredded lettuce

1/2 cup sour cream

1/3 cup salsa


Brown ground beef in a skillet. Drain oil and mix in the taco seasoning according to directions.

While the bags of chips are unopened, gently crush the chips.

Cut the top of the bag opened. Spoon in beef mixture, tomato, salsa, cheddar cheese, lettuce and sour cream in equal amounts.

Serve in bag and chow down using a spoon or fork.

Baked Potato


1 Russet potato

Olive oil

Melted butter

Sea salt


Cheese, sour cream, chives (optional)
