Ingredients (12)

  • reduced-fat, shredded mozzarella cheese ½ cup
  • bell pepper (red, green, yellow), finely diced ½ each
  • grated carrot ¼ cup
  • reduced-fat cream cheese (tub) ½ cup
  • beaten egg yolk with 2 tablespoons water 1
  • refrigerator buttermilk biscuits (10 per tube) 1 tube (7.5 ounce)
  • tomato 5 slices
  • flour for dusting surface, rolling pin
  • grape tomatoes, sliced in half
  • sliced black olives
  • multi-color bell peppers cut into shapes (such as stars, half moons, zig-zags)
For safe meat preparation, reference the USDA website. For dips, make and enjoy your dip creation. Then, refrigerate within 2 hours or discard.

Steps (7)

  1. 1
    Pre-heat oven to 400°F.
  2. 2
    In a large bowl mix the cream cheese, Hidden Valley® Ranch Light Buttermilk Salad Dressing, mozzarella cheese, diced bell peppers, and carrots until well combined; set aside.
  3. 3
    Open the biscuits and separate. Sprinkle flour over a clean dry surface. Take a rolling pin, and roll each biscuit into a 4” circle. Using a pastry brush, brush some of the egg yolk mixture around the edge of each circle.
  4. 4
    Spread a heaping tablespoon of the cheesy-ranch mixture onto five biscuit circles, then put a tomato slice on top. Place one of the remaining biscuit circles on top of each filled circle. Stretch the top circle to completely cover the bottom circle; press around the edges with the tines of a fork to seal.
  5. 5
    Use a spatula to place each of the flying saucers onto a greased baking sheet. Brush some more of the egg yolk mixture over the tops of each flying saucer and decorate with sliced veggies — use your imagination to create fun designs.
  6. 6
    Bake 15–16 minutes or until golden brown around the edges.
  7. 7
    Transfer the flying saucers to a wire rack and let stand about 5 minutes before serving.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from They sound delicious We here in Pennsylvainia have had some bad weather from hurricane Sandy, so the grandchildren have no school today and are here with us. I thought I would have them help me make these, and did we have fun. Plus they loved them. They made me promise to print the recipe so they could take it home with them for their Mom.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unique Sandwich As a lover of cream cheese, this was one I had to try. It was good but I'd add some herbs next time such as basil, thyme, and a tiny bit of tarragon.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decoration Time I prepared the basic recipe and let everyone decorate their own. Some of the kids didn't like the tomato inside, but generally enjoyed the whole process.
