1
can (12 oz) Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Jr. Golden Layers™ refrigerated buttermilk biscuits (10 biscuits)

Expert Tips

For best results, make sure all the mozzarella is on top of the lasagna mixture instead of spilling off onto the muffin pan.

For a lighter version, you can substitute ground turkey for the sausage. Just add 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning and 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes to the mix.
