Greek Biscuit Cups

 A while back I made Taco Cupcakes  and they were a big hit with the family.  I decided to take a Greek flavor twist on my next biscuit cups.  These were really fun an another winner with the family.  You can serve these as a great appetizer or snack.  I served it with a green salad and it made a fantastic dinner.

2 cans Pillsbury Grands Biscuits
1-2 cups of mozzarella cheese (as needed)
black olives sliced (optional)
1 lb lean ground meat (beef, chicken, lamb, turkey)
1 (10oz) box of frozen spinach defrosted
2 cloves grated fresh garlic
1 medium onion finely chopped
1tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 onion powder
salt or seasoning salt to taste
red chili flakes to taste
black pepper to taste
4oz of crumbled feta cheese

Brown ground meat and season with salt and black pepper. Remove from pan.  Heat 1 tsp of canola oil in pan.  Add onion and garlic and saute.  Then add cumin powder, oregano, onion powder, red chili flakes.

Next add the defrosted spinach. Make sure you squeeze all the water from the frozen spinach so it is very dry.  Finally add the browned meat back onto the pan and the crumbled feta cheese.  Mix well.  Divide grands biscuits in half and mold into muffin tins.
Fill muffins with meat and spinach mixture.  Top with black olives and mozzarella cheese.  Bake in oven according to biscuit directions for 15-17 minutes.  Serve hot or warm. Enjoy.
