Super Easy to make and always a hit

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Lane Realty Eatonton, GA Lake Sinclair, Milledgeville, 706-485-9668 GREC# 169695


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 3/4 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1 tbsp dry minced onion
  • 1 (12 oz) tube refrigerated biscuits
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


    1. Preheat oven to 400F degrees.
    2. Spray muffin tin with nonstick cooking spray.
    3. In a large pan, brown and crumble ground beef.
    4. Turn off heat and drain excess grease from ground beef.
    5. Put ground beef back in pan and add in BBQ sauce and dried minced onion.
    6. Stir well.
    7. Separate biscuits and place into greased muffin tins.
    8. Press dough up and along the sides.
    9. Divide meat mixture between muffins (you may have just a small amount leftover).
    10. Sprinkle each one with shredded cheddar cheese.
    11. Bake for 10-12 minutes until biscuits are golden brown and cheese is melted.


    This was the recipe I found.  It's an original Pillsbury recipe from 1968 so I've read. However, I'm the kind of cook who can "never" just cook a recipe the way I find it.  I don't use dry minced onions, I mince my own, add a bit of green onions for color and some red bell peppers mince pretty small. And I don't used regular canned biscuits because I prefer the Crescent Rolls.  

    You can also use ground chicken or turkey if you prefer and substitute another flavor profile for barbecue.... like pizza sauce ( throw in some black olives)  , ginger sauce for an Asian flare (throw in some water chestnuts) , taco cups (add in some chili peppers) or sloppy joe cups.  It's very vestal and you can make them in a mini muffin tin to just make them a bite.

    My family and friends love them and I've used them for a quick dinner and for parties in the mini muffin tin.  I've used ground turkey because I try to limit my red meat consumption.  And I've thrown in all kinds of extras.  I've added pepperoni minis and sun dried tomatoes with pizza sauce and I think that is my families favorite.  And you of course can use a variety of cheeses as well.  If you try this let me know how you make your own.

Those look delicious and I am thinking if I could do them with the cloud bread that Barbara Todaro taught me how to make, use lean ground beef and sugar-free bbq sauce, I might even get a thumbs up from her, haha.
