Oh my gosh! These are so good! I wish my mom would have made them for us. Perhaps she didn’t have the recipe then, but it is written in her hand on a yellow index card. The yellow index card tells me that’ it’s pretty old. I remember them being at my grandparents’ house when I was about 6. And now I’m like 600 according to my kids, so yeah, they’re pretty old. I just made these for dinner tonight and I got into a bit of a rush because it was getting late by the time I got the groceries unloaded and then 3 people decided to text me all at once, and 3 more kept asking, “Is it ready yet? How long before dinner’s done?” Because I was in a rush, I forgot to put the cheese on top, but truthfully, I didn’t even miss it until I was looking at the recipe again. Well, she must have made it for someone. It has stains on it. Huh…my feelings might be hurt.
As I’ve mentioned before, I have to double all of my recipes to feed my family. Since my ground meat is all in 1 lb. packages, I used 2 lbs. of ground meat, 1lb. beef and 1lb. venison. I used 2 cups of bbq sauce, 3 tsp. minced onion, 2 green peppers, 3 Tbsp. of brown sugar and 2 cans of refrigerator biscuits (a total of 18). I already said that I forgot the cheese. I did have some meat mixture left over and I filled them really full.
The eight in the back were made with Pillsbury Grands biscuits and the four up front were made with Grands Juniors. I stretched them out before I put them into the muffin tin and stuffed them with the meat mixture. The Grands are obviously bigger and puffed up more. They were easy to make and only took about half an hour, start to finish. I absolutely recommend these and I will be making them again!
3/4 lb. ground beef
2/3 cup barbecue sauce
1 tsp. minced onion
1 green pepper, chopped
1 Tbsp. brown sugar
1/8 tsp. salt
1 can (8 oz.) refrigerator biscuits (12)
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Brown meat in a skillet, adding onion, green pepper and salt. Drain. Stir in barbeque sauce and brown sugar. Separate biscuit dough and place one in each of 12 ungreased muffin cups. Press dough up sides to top edges, forming a cup. Spoon meat mixture into cups. Sprinkle with two cheeses. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.
Chow Down Y’all!
For dessert tomorrow I’ll be offering Double Chocolate Treasures.
