BBQ Meatcups

I got this recipe here. It was super easy to make and very flavorful! The buttery taste of the biscuits was a PERFECT compliment to the tangy meat mixture. I had to cook it a little bit longer than it said (about 3 minutes extra) and I PACKED each biscuit with the meat filling and still had some left over. But these were a HUGE HIT with my husband! He ate SIX of the EIGHT that I made and only stopped because he was too full to pack anymore in! I'll DEFINITELY be making them again!


1 lb ground beef (browned and drained)
1 tube Pilsbury Grands Biscuits
½ cup catsup
½ cup BBQ sauce
¼ cup brown sugar
3 TBS dried onion
1 tsp salt
½ tsp pepper
2 TBS relish (optional)
cheese for topping

Preheat oven to 375°. Grease muffin pan and flatten dough from biscuits into the pan. Put hamburger in bowl, mix in remaining ingredients except cheese. Fill dough with meat mixture. Bake 8 minutes. Top with cheese and bake another 5 min.
*NOTE: I was worried that cooking the meat mixture in the biscuits would make them gross and soggy but I was SO wrong! The biscuits turned out perfectly well and not the least bit soggy. If you are not a big onion fan I would recommend using onion powder instead of the dried onion. That way you still get the taste of the onion, minus the texture!

I don't mind at all!!! When I was a little girl I would always get upset when people would "copy me" so my VERY wise babysitter at that time said that people copying you is the biggest form of a compliment there is. Plus, I totally stole ideas from you too! :-D
I have only made the dish in the crockpot once, and I'm pretty sure I cooked it for 6 hours on low. The Orange Chicken Leg Quarters dish I have has you cook them for 6 hours, so I just went off of that. It is good in the crockpot, and easier if you don't have time to make it that night, but it tastes best baked.

BTW, I totally think this dish looks amazing and I want to try it! I just don't think my husband would go for it. :-( He has this thing about bread being soggy... was it soggy at all? If it wasn't I will try to sneak it past him and see if he will try it.

I edited the lasagna dish for better instructions! Thanks for asking questions because that one I just did off the top of my head and I haven't made it in quite awhile!

Hello! I'm a friend of Amy's and I wanted to "introduce" myself over blogger. I have a quick question about the meatcup recipe. Did you cook the hamburger before or do you mix all the ingredients together while the hamburger is still raw?

Hey Brooke! I couldn't access your blog so I will just have to reply here. The hamburger has to be browned and drained before you mix it with the other ingredients. It doesn't say that in the instructions but it is in the ingredient list. Hope you enjoy!
