BBQ Beef Cups

Are you planning a Superbowl party?  Well, aren’t you glad you stopped by!  These little babies will be perfect for your party!

They definitely aren’t healthy or pretty, but we’re going to pretend that doesn’t matter.  Its a party after all!  What’s important is that they are delicious, party friendly, time friendly, and guy friendly! 







My husband went nuts for these the first time I made them.  I think I ate two and he ate the other six. 🙂  I do really enjoy them too though.  And, I’ll be the first to admit my tastes aren’t very sophisticated.  So, give me one or two of these and a beer and I’ll be happy. 🙂

But, back to Superbowl parties for a minute.  You can do these full size if you want them to be more of a main dish or in mini muffin tins for smaller bites.  You’ll need to cut the biscuits in half or maybe even thirds to fit into the smaller muffin tin holes.  The baking time will also be reduced, so watch them closely in the oven.  I would start checking on them after 5 minutes.

I’m not sure of the source of this recipe to be honest.  If you know, I will gladly give credit where its due.

BBQ Beef Cups


3/4 pound ground beef

1 can of refrigerated flaky buttermilk jumbo biscuits (8 in a can)

1/2 cup BBQ sauce

3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese

1/2 teaspoon instant minced onion, optional ( Sometimes I use 1/2 cup fresh chopped onion.)

salt and pepper, crushed red pepper flakes, or other seasonings of your choice depending on your tastes and spiciness of your BBQ sauce, optional


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Press raw biscuits into muffin tin holes to form cups, set aside.

Brown ground beef in skillet until cooked through (add chopped onion if you choose). Drain. Return to skillet with heat turned off. Stir in BBQ sauce and seasonings.  Put hamburger mixture into “cups” and top each with shredded cheese.

Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.  Enjoy!
