BBQ Beef Cups

by Melissa on November 9, 2008


For my first Snack Food Sunday post, I am sharing these BBQ Beef Cups.

Barbecue sauce, meat and cheese, piled high in a biscuit cup. If that isn’t man food, I don’t know what is. Nate and his friends love these snacks and always request them during football season. They are so easy to make and sure to please, I would highly recommend them for your next football party!

BBQ Beef Cups

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 3/4 pound lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 1 (12 ounce) package refrigerated biscuit dough
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease the cups of a muffin pan.

In a large heavy skillet over medium heat, heat olive oil, add onion and cook until soft. Add ground beef and cook until evenly browned. Drain excess fat. Stir in barbecue sauce. Simmer for a few minutes over low heat.

Flatten each biscuit, and press into cups of the prepared muffin pan. Make sure the dough comes to the top of the pan. Spoon a portion of the meat mixture into each dough cup.

Bake in preheated oven for 12 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese, and bake for 3 more minutes.

Refrigerated biscuit dough is such a great thing to have on hand for appetizers.
