As many of you know I’m from a small Texas farm and ranch family. One of the things this means is that I was pretty much raised on biscuits. In my family, biscuits were a staple to pretty much every meal regardless of the time of day. I can remember being little, spending summers with my grandparents. I’d get up early with my Papa and feed cattle, check fences among a variety of other “rancher” duties. When it got close to noon we’d head back in to town and you can guarantee as soon as we walked through that door my Nannie would be pulling steaming hot biscuits out of the oven!

  • In 10-inch nonstick skillet, mix cooked beef and barbecue sauce. Heat over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until hot.
  • 2 Pull each biscuit apart into 2 layers; press each into 4-inch round. Place 1 round in each of 8 greased regular-size muffin cups. Firmly press in bottom and up side, forming 1/4-inch rim. Fill with beef mixture; sprinkle with cheese.
  • 3 Bake at 375°F 13 to 15 minutes or until edges of biscuits are golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from pan.

I made the above recipe super fast! Toddler Luke even helped smash the biscuits before we placed them in the muffin tin. I had a extra can of biscuits so I went ahead and threw them in a cast iron skillet so now I have breakfast ready too!

    My boys can tear up biscuits, these sound delish! I am going to have to try these with them.


      I think that’s like a “boy requirement!” The can eat their weight in biscuits!
