Terrific Tip: Use kitchen scissors to make cutting biscuits easy.
Nutrition Nugget: This recipe calls for ground sirloin which is the leanest cut of meat. Always look for cuts of meat ending in a “loin” or “round” to insure you are eating healthier. Rinsing and draining beans reduces sodium by up to 40%.
