BBQ Beef Biscuits from Table for Seven

Tired of plain ole’ ground beef or turkey dishes? Jazz them up with a little BBQ sauce with these delicious and portable biscuits. These are a great option for lunch, dinner or an appetizer!

Ingredients Needed:

  • Ground beef ( or turkey)
  • Minced onion
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Refrigerator biscuits
  • BBQ Sauce
  • Chopped green peppers, optional

Can I Use Fresh Onions Instead? Yes. Chop up your desired amount of onions and cook them with the ground meat as it browns.

Refrigerator Biscuits: Use your favorite refrigerator biscuits. I like to use the standard buttermilk variety. You can use a “flaky” versions, but you may need to cut the biscuits in half, or they will be too large.

BBQ Sauce: A ketchup based BBQ sauce works best for these. Go with your favorite brand/variety or homemade. Not a fan of BBQ Sauce? Ketchup is a great alternative!

How to Make:

  • Remove the biscuits from the package and separate.
  • Preheat your oven and grease a 12 count muffin pan.
  • Next, in a skillet, brown the ground meat with the onion until no longer pink. Drain, if necessary.
  • Return it to the skillet and stir in the BBQ sauce and a portion of the cheese.
  • Press 1 piece of biscuit dough into a well of the prepared muffin pan.
  • Spoon the meat mixture on top. Bake for 10 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and top with the remaining cheese. Place them back in the oven and bake until the cheese is melted and biscuits are lightly brown.

Storage: Keep any leftovers in a covered container in the refrigerator.

Also Great for Lunch:

I bet if I leave out the bell pepper I could not only get Amara to help me make these she might actually eat one! She is a picky little girl and gets it from BOTH parents!
