BBQ cups

This is a favorite of my little brother, Joe, who isn't little anymore...sniff sniff. This is an easy recipe that can be an appetizer or meal.  The biscuits in this recipe aren't the fluffy Grands, they're the super cheap 50 cent 'hockey puck' biscuits.  Look closely...they'll be less than a dollar in the refrigerated section.

BBQ Cups

3/4 lb. ground turkey or ground beef
1/2 bottle barbecue sauce, or more to taste
1 tube of cheapie biscuits
4 oz. shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Crumble and brown the meat in a skillet.  Add in the barbecue sauce.  You may want to add in a little extra; the mixture should taste very saucy.  Meanwhile, put one biscuit into each cup of a muffin tin.  Smash them down a little.  Divide the barbecue mixture evenly into each cup.  Top with shredded cheese.  Bake 20 minutes or until heated through and cheese is lightly browned.


  1. Hannah, I've been making these ever since you made them for us a few years ago. Jason really likes the Grands biscuit flavor, but they bake up too fluffy for this recipe. I buy the flaky layers Grands when they're on sale really cheap with a coupon (of course), then I split each biscuit in two before putting them into the muffin tin. Then instead of making 8, it makes 16 per can. Thanks for the recipe!

  2. That sounds like something we'd really enjoy! The BBQ sauce would melt into the biscuit and make it really yummy.
