These tasty morsels probably have a proper name, but I always called them biscuit cups as a kid and that’s what I’ll always know them as. It doesn’t get much easier than this! My mom made these often when I was growing up which garnered much enthusiasm from Dad and me. Hubs is no different. It’s so ironic how he’ll rave about BBQ biscuits cups and Pepper Jack Mac but just kinda suffers through the butternut squash soup I slaved over. Whatever.
Ingredients: 1 can biscuits (jumbo or regular depending on the size of your muffin tins) 8oz BBQ sauce 1/2 cup Shredded cheese 1lb Ground beef
Brown and drain about a pound of ground beef (or turkey) then add 1/2 a bottle (8-9oz) or so of BBQ sauce.
Spray a muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray. Flatten the biscuits inside and up the sides of the tin as much as you can (they biscuits will resist because they are so springy. Just do the best you can). I had jumbo biscuits so I used a large muffin tin. You can also use regular sized biscuits with a regular tin. Spoon equal amounts of the meat mixture into the biscuits.
Bake according to the directions on the biscuit sleeve. Remove from oven, top with cheese and back a few minutes longer until cheese is melted and biscuits are browned. I popped one up on its side so you can get an idea of how done they need to be.
Your kids will be happy and your hubs too if he’s as low maintenance as mine!
