Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease 8 muffin cups.
  2. In a large skillet or frying pan, cook ground chuck with onion and garlic powder until evenly brown; drain off the grease. Stir in the barbeque sauce and simmer for another 3 minutes.
  3. Roll out each biscuit on a floured surface so that each biscuit is 6 inches across. Put the biscuit in the muffin tin and fold up sides to create a cup shape. Fill each biscuit fill almost to the top with the meat mixture; top with cheddar cheese.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until biscuits are baked, cheese is melted and tops are golden brown, about 15 minutes.

I've been making these for years and my recipe is called Barbecups. I don't roll the biscuits out in flour from the refrigerated roll package. I just spray Pam into a cupcake muffin pan, plop the biscuit in and make a well in each biscuit. Add the beef mixture that I also add a couple tbsp's of brown sugar to, and less onion. I put a small chuck of med. cheddar cheese and bake at 400 degrees for about 15 to 18 minutes.

I thought that it was fair. I think that if I make it next time I will try something other than BBQ sauce and use a lot less meat. And perhaps it is a generation thing, but it was stragely reminiscent of school cafeteria scents from years ago. But it was an okay recipe.

The concept was so neat I had to try them. The husband and kids liked. Had to come up with side dishes. Plan to use this idea for eggs with sausage and cheese. Thanks a lot!!

WOWWW!!! I Have a family 5... So we have to change up to keep every one happy... I doubled the recipe and used 2 pkgs of biscuits that had 10 in a pack.. All 3 children helped, even my son.. Very creative idea.. We all loved it..My husband only had a few to take to lunch the next day... Teach him to work late ( GIGGLE)I served with canned corn and mashed potatoes.. My youngest child put corn on top of these and said they were mini pot pies... If I could give this 6 stars I would.. Thanks so much for sharing... Next time I will try not rolling them, just dropping in, and dipping a space in them... That is definately a time saving technique.

We were craving tacos, but were out of shells. The kids and I loved these with taco filling in them, shredded Mexican cheese mixture on top and salsa & sour cream on the side. The only reason I didn't rate them a 5 was because of the fat factor. I'll try reduced fat biscuits next time. Thanks for the great idea - it really saved our day!

These were very "curious" little things, and the family loved them. They were easy to make and very tasty. The left over ones were easy to freeze and reheat. We will be making these again.

I added some balsamic vinegar and dry mustard to generic barbeque sauce. Also prefered using minced garlic rather than the powder. Great dish.....good comfort food.

Help! I cook a lot and I'm not sure what I did wrong. They're GREAT but I had a lot left over. I purchased the dinner sized biscuits (8/pkg) and had half the filling and cheese left over. Am I missing something? This recipe is a keeper.
