Yummy Uglies

I found this recipe today and tried it. We just finished eating it for dinner, and it was really fun and yummy--like simple sloppy joes in a cup. The kids sure liked it. I'm going to try out some of the variations below. Have fun!


ingredients:
1 lb. ground beef
garlic powder
onion (fresh or dried/minced)
1 1/4 cup barbecue sauce
1 can refrigerated biscuits (like "Pillsbury Grands")
1 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

directions:
1. Preheat oven to 400. Spray muffin pan with cooking spray.

2. Brown beef with onion (use the amount you desire) and several dashes of garlic powder. Drain fat off meat and stir in the barbecue sauce.

3. Press out the biscuit dough (roll out or use your palm) to stretch each biscuit to 6". Place in muffin cup. Take a large scoop of the meat mixture and place into the biscuit "cup." Sprinkle with cheese.
4. Cook for 13-15 minutes or until brown and flaky. Enjoy!
Variations:
*Instead of BBQ sauce, try Taco Seasoning for a taco-type ugly and garnish with sour cream and salsa.
*I thought of trying this with a sausage and egg mixture...for a breakfast-type of ugly.
*Use your imagination with these "cups"--several fun ideas come to mind!

Thanks Sara. I got a bunch of biscuits cheap the other day and have been wondering what to do with all of them. Perfect!
