  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. Spray 24 mini muffin cups with cooking spray. In 10-inch skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium; add bell pepper. Cook 5 to 7 minutes longer, stirring occasionally, until onion is softened and golden brown. Remove from heat.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, beat eggs. Stir in sour cream, salt and pepper sauce. Stir in cooked onion and 1/4 cup of the cheese. Spoon onion mixture evenly into mini muffin cups.
  • 3
    Unroll dough into 1 large rectangle; press perforations and edges to seal. Using a 1 1/2-inch biscuit or cookie cutter, cut dough into small rounds. Place dough round on top of onion mixture in each cup. Top with remaining cheese.
  • 4
    Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown and set in center. Cool 5 minutes; run knife around edge of each muffin cup. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Expert Tips

  • Try using Monterey Jack or mozzarella in place of the Cheddar cheese.
  • Be patient when caramelizing the onions. If you rush them, they won't taste as sweet.
