Bar-Bo-Cups

This is another recipe from a cookbook at the museum I work at, this one from Sharing Recipes: A Book of Favorite Recipes Compiled by the Ladies Auxiliary of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, State of Wyoming. It’s decidedly not fancy, but it’s very tasty, easy, and kind of fun.

IMG_6403I used (and I think they may have intended?) canned/refrigerated biscuit dough. I made it a second time with biscuits from scratch, but definitely preferred the version with canned dough. Because the recipe makes enough filling for 12, but tubes of dough only come with 8 biscuits, you’ll want to either cut the filling down by 1/3, or (better) use 1 1/2 cans of dough, and use the other half for something else. If you make them with the canned dough, they come out of the pan much easier, and hold together well all the way through the last bite.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup bbq sauce
  • 1 1/2 tubes prepared biscuit dough
  • 1 1/2 – 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Grease a 12 cup muffin tin and set aside. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until it begins to soften.

IMG_6396Add the beef and cook until browned. Remove from the heat and stir in the brown sugar and bbq sauce.

IMG_6398One at a time, squash the biscuit dough flat and place in a muffin cup.

IMG_6397Fill each with the ground beef mixture, then top with cheese.

IMG_6400Bake 15-20 minutes, until what you can see of the biscuits is browned.

IMG_6401Pop out of the tin and enjoy.
