We have a Jim N Nicks BBQ Restaurant near our house and I love to go there for a meal as often as possible. I love basically everything I’ve tried- the mammoth onion rings, the pulled pork and mac and cheese. But I especially love the complimentary mini muffins they bring to the table. We always get seconds, sometimes thirds.

This is a really simple recipe and they come really close to the real thing. You will need a mini muffin pan.

You could make them larger, but I love them bite-sized.

  1. Love this recipe! I have made it twice now and put the batter in my waffle make for chicken and waffles. A perfect recipe! Thank you!

  2. Went to Jim’n Nicks last night. Love these biscuits. So happy to find this recipe. Will make them for Thanksgiving dinner

  3. Made them last night for the Buckeye game to go along with smoked pork shoulder. They were thoroughly enjoyed by all.
    They were just how I remember them from Jim N Nicks, delicious. Thanks!

  4. It would be hard to leave any room for the meal because I’d be chowing down on these biscuits if they came first at the table. Looks amazing. Hope you had a great long weekend and summer!
