1/2 cup bottled barbecue sauce
1 tbsp minced onion
1 1/2 tbsp brown sugar
1 can refrigerated biscuits
3/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
In a 10-inch skillet, brown the ground beef; drain off any excess fat. Stir the barbecue sauce into the ground beef. Add the onion and brown sugar to the beef mixture and mix well. Press the biscuits into greased muffin cups, one biscuit per cup. Press onto the bottom and up the sides to form a cup. Spoon the ground beef mixture into the biscuit cups. Evenly divide the cheese over the tops of the beef mixture in the cups. Bake at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. These little cups make good appetizers or party food. They are also a good dinner or lunch item. With a salad and corn on the cob, this makes a meal the kiddos love to eat.
Note: Instead of the barbecue sauce, you can make these as taco cups by using a mild salsa.
