"Calorie Free" Saturday!

Saturdays are the one day that we get to sleep in (at least until 7:00 am!).  Our typical Saturday consists of waking up without an alarm (unless you count the phone ringing), having our first cup of coffee on the porch and we eat what we want, so we call it "Calorie Free" Saturday!  Almost every week, I make a big batch of pancakes and I do have to admit, I make The Best pancakes!! Look for my Pancake Post coming soon!  But today, I wanted something a little different.  I didn't have much time but wanted something warm and sweet and Gregg absolutely loves Strawberries.  So, I looked in the fridge to see what I had on hand.  I found a can of Pillsbury Homestyle Butter Biscuits (why I have these, I do not know because we NEVer eat biscuits!) and started just playing around with a few ingredients and now have created what will for sure be one of our favorite "Calorie Free" Saturday breakfasts!  I've named it: 

 Strawberry Stuffed Biscuits

You will need one can of biscuits of choice (or homemade).  Place on pan and before putting in oven, dot each biscuit with butter and sprinkle cinnamon and sugar
 on top of each biscuit.  Bake according to directions.

While hot, split open each biscuit and place 1 tsp cream cheese (plain or Strawberry) 
and 1 tsp of Strawberry jam. 
This is my mother's homemade Strawberry Freezer Jam that is Fabulous!

Top with Strawberry Syrup and Whipped Cream.

Eat while still hot!  The filling gets all melted together and it's so YUMMY!
  and did I mention... 

it's "Calorie Free"!!

Have a Great Weekend!
