BBQ Ground Beef Biscuit Cups- refrigerated biscuits filled with a sweet and savory bbq ground beef mixture and topped with cheese. Such an easy family lunch or dinner recipe.
Serve with a side salad and you have a filling, tasty meal that kids will love. Leftovers can be refrigerated for 3 days. These biscuit cups are a great way to stretch a pound of ground beef into a filling meal. And it’s such an economical meal.
I like to spice these BBQ Ground Beef Biscuit Cups up some by adding chopped pickled jalapeno peppers.
This is a quick and easy recipe that only takes about 25 minutes to make. The ground beef filling can even be made in advance and refrigerated until you are ready to serve the biscuit cups.
- You can use ground chicken or ground turkey instead of ground beef.
- You can use anything from 80% lean ground beef to 93% lean. If using an 80%, be sure to drain off some of the grease after you brown it.
- Use your favorite BBQ Sauce for this recipe. If you use a sweet bbq sauce, omit the brown sugar. You won’t need it. If you use a vinegary and tangy bbq sauce, go ahead and add the brown sugar.
- Get the GRANDS biscuits (you will need 5) and peel each biscuit into 2 biscuits. If using regular-sized biscuits, do not peel them into 2 and use 10 biscuits.
- Can be frozen but withhold the cheese. Bake them, let them cool completely and freeze them in a freezer bag. Bake the frozen biscuits at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes, then add cheese and bake until cheese is fully melted.
These BBQ Beef Biscuit Cups are so fun to eat and they can even be eaten with your hands.
