Junk Food Sunday

Every once and a while we have what we call Junk Food Dinner.  This is a variety of frozen baked treats.  Tonight that included pizza rolls, yes the kind out of the bag, and chips and party dip.  We always throw in something to make it not so bad, so carrot sticks and sliced watermelon also made appearances.  I did want to try my hand at the stuffed pork biscuits. These aren't really junk food, but they are finger foods so close enough.  I wouldn't call the last time I made these a blunder, more of a wrong use of a key ingredient. So this time I got the store bought biscuits in a can. Much easier to work with.
I folded them and crimped the edges with a fork.
They went in the oven on 350 for 13 minutes.  They came out golden brown and looked much better this time.  Served with a side of a mixture of BBQ sauces I had on hand.  I know the heart plate is pretty.
For dessert we made the caramel custard again.  This has become a house favorite due to the great taste and easiness of the recipe.  Much better this time, I used a real plate instead of paper, and no cracks.
The melted sugar turns into liquid gold.
The pork biscuits were much better this time, but I haven't perfected that one.  I will keep trying though.  The dessert was beyond good.  It was also good for breakfast this morning with a cup of coffee.  As for the rest of the junk food dinner it was great, but I will try home made pizza rolls that I saw on brent's blog next time.
