month. These recipes are so over the top, they are sure to wreck your week if you’re trying to mind what you’re eating. I have made it my mission to take every single horrifyingly over-the-top recipe I have pinned over the last year before I got back with Weight Watchers to make them figure friendly.

So. Today are these Stuffed Cheese Buns. Don’t they look tasty? Well, yes. Do they look like they’ll stop you up for a month? Oh, yeah. I have remade these buns into my own I Can Has Cheezebunz. They’re smaller, party friendly, and 2 PointsPlus per bun. (Just be careful because you might eat five before you know it. I did!)

I Can Has Cheezebunz?

Serves: 24 | 2 PointsPlus per bun

Ingredients:

1 can Pillsbury Grands Biscuits, Buttermilk flavor

6 Laughing Cow Babybel Light Cheese

24 sprays of Parkay Spray Butter

5 tbsp Reduced Fat Parmesan Cheese

1 tsp Garlic Powder

1 tsp Italian Seasoning (like McCormick with all the stuff you need in one bottle)

Here’s How It Works!

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Place your biscuit dough on a floured cutting board, do not flour the side facing up. Leaving yourself enough room to work (I could only fit two biscuits on my board) flatten the biscuits with the heel of your palm, trying to press them outward into a bigger circle. Cut into quarters.
  3. Give someone else the really tedious job of unwrapping the Babybels. Take your unwrapped Babybels, cut in quarters, and place each quarter on one quarter of your biscuit dough.
  4. Fold the dough over and pinch to seal. Roll the dough in your palms to make a bun roughly the size of a golfball. Place on baking sheet lined with parchment paper about two inches apart. (Protip: Parchment paper won’t stay flat? Spray the baking sheet with a light mist of Pam, fold your sheet of parchment paper in half, curly side towards each other, unfold, press curl side down on baking sheet. Voila. Pamglue.)
  5. Bake at 375 for 8 minutes. They won’t get terribly brown but any longer and you’ll have cheese exploding out of the buns. I did that. :/
  6. In a small dish, mix your parmesan, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning.
  7. Remove your buns from the oven and transfer to a plate immediately. Spray each bun once with the spray butter. Sprinkle with the parmesan mixture.
  8. Serve warm, but put a warning that the cheese will likely be thermonuclear hot. I did that too. :/ Ow.

Now You Try!

What did you think? Did you try a different kind of cheese? Were they a hit at your party? Did your buns explode? Did you sit there and eat the whole pan? Did you make your buns bigger? Remember to adjust for points! A Grands Buttermilk biscuit by itself is 5 Points! Take note!
