These aren't pretty, but they are delicious. Serve with a salad for a great meal! You can freeze them for a quick dinner, but hide them or your family will eat them up!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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. Read More

I've been making these for years as other posters have stated. Proper name is Barbecups, a Pillsbury bake off prize winner from the 60's. The amount of barbeque sauce needed is only 1/2 cup, not 1 1/2 cups. 1 1/2 cups is way too much sauce for 1 pound of ground beef. If 1 1/2 cups BBQ sauce is used, it will overpower the taste of the completed recipe. Read More

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!! Read More

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. Read More

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! Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

Good stuff. The kids loved the name and the meal. Easy enough to make and we figured one could add other ingredients or change the BBQ sauce to any number of things. Read More
