Do you need a recipe that you can throw together in under 30 minutes? Bar-B-Cups is a recipe that fills the bill.
As I have said before, if you're reading my recipe posts looking for gourmet food, you will be disappointed. In Food Network terms, the meals at the County Line are more Sandra Lee's Semi-Homemade than Iron Chef America.
As cattle producers, we have a freezer full of beef. So beef in some form is the centerpiece for the majority of meals around here.
When I'm browning hamburger, I often brown more than I need for one recipe. It can really speed meal preparation to have browned hamburger in the refrigerator, ready for the next recipe.
Bar-B-Cups is one of those go-to meals when the clock is ticking toward noon and I need something fast. Enjoy!
3/4 lb. ground beef, browned
1/2 cup barbecue sauce (I use Curly's)
1 8-oz. can refrigerator biscuits (10 biscuits)
3/4 cup shredded cheese
Brown ground beef and onion; drain. Add barbecue sauce. Press each biscuit individually into greased muffin cups, trying to line the muffin cup as well as you can. (Note: Now that the kids aren't home, I usually use a small can of refrigerator biscuits. The small can has 5 biscuits. I take a little dough off each biscuit and use it to make a sixth Bar-B-Cup. I like symmetry. What can I say?)
Spoon meat mixture into the cups.
Sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.
This time, I served the Bar-B-Cups with oven baked french fries (for Randy) and a salad.
