  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease the cups of a muffin pan.
  2. In a large heavy skillet over medium heat, cook beef until evenly brown. Drain excess fat. Stir in barbeque sauce and dried onion. Simmer for a few minutes over low heat.
  3. Flatten each biscuit, and press into cups of the prepared muffin pan. Make sure the dough comes to the top of the pan. Spoon a portion of the meat mixture into each dough cup.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 12 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese, and bake for 3 more minutes.

We really liked this recipe. I paid attention to the other reviews and added my own twist to it. After filling the muffin cups with dough, I baked the dough by itself for 2 minutes before adding the beef filling. This made sure the entire bottom was firm and cooked thru. I added chopped onion, green pepper, garlic, crushed red pepper, worstechire sauce, prepared mustard, honey, and hot sauce. I mixed the cheese in to the beef mix. This made it turn out kind of like a sloppy joe. It tasted great! Also, I used butter crescent rolls, and the cup was perfect! This is a winner!


My husband and I did not care for this. Maybe it was the type of biscuits we used (grands flakey buttermilk). BUT This works great with scrambled eggs, sausage pieces and bits of bacon inside them smothered with white gravy and topped with cheese. It's a great new way to biscuits and gravy! We call our creation "breakfast in a biscuit". :) I give that one 5 *'s!


We had these for dinner tonight and they were really good! They were similar to another recipe I had tried before but these were much better! I used Grands® reduced fat biscuits and they were the perfect size for my muffin pan. I think almost any type of filling can be used for some variety. I'm planning on making this again but with a tuna salad filling instead of the ground beef and bbq sauce.
