box (10 oz) frozen baby Brussels sprouts & butter sauce

1/4
cup finely chopped red onion

cup shredded pepper Jack cheese (2 oz)

Steps

  • 2 Meanwhile, in 8-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add red onion; cook 2 minutes or until soft, stirring occasionally. Set aside.
  • 3 Remove dough from package, but do not unroll. Using serrated knife, cut evenly into 16 rounds; carefully separate rounds. Roll each round into a ball; flatten to 2 1/2-inch round.
