As back-to-school is approaching I have had quick, simple, 30 minute dinners on my mind. I am trying to prepare several of them to post to the blog soon just in time for those busy back-to-school weeknights.

As I was making a list of our favorite dinners for busy weeknights, these cheeseburger biscuit cups were at the top of my list and I could not believe that I hadn’t shared them before now.

I found this recipe years ago, like probably a decade ago, in a Taste of Home magazine. I have made them more times than I can count since and they still remain one of my family’s favorite dinners.Β

These cheeseburger biscuit cups can be on the table in 30 minutes! And the best part is that they are made with very inexpensive ingredients and most of them you will already have on hand.Β 

Ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and brown sugar! I am pretty sure most of us have those items already in our kitchens. Just buy yourself a pound of lean ground beef, Velveeta cheese, and a can of buttermilk biscuit dough and you’re set.

The can of refrigerated biscuits will come with 8 biscuits inside. Take one and flatten it out and then press into a muffin tin. Repeat with the remaining biscuits. Brown a simple mixture of ground beef, ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and brown sugar and fill those biscuit cups up. Top with a few squares of Velveeta cheese and pop them in the oven.

They come out lightly golden brown with toasty, flaky edges and filled with a warm and cheesy beef mixture. These are beyond delicious and you really must try them.

I know some don’t care for the strong flavor of Worcestershire sauce but I promise that it is not too overwhelming in this recipe. It provides such a rich and deep flavor that you really do need it. It’s only 1 teaspoon and mixed in with the mustard, ketchup, and brown sugar it blends really well together.Β 

If you are super anti-Velveeta then go ahead and use “real cheese” cubes instead. They won’t melt as nicely as the Velveeta but you will still get that cheese, just not the ooey gooey cheese of the Velveeta πŸ™‚ Moderation in all things is what I say, so eating Velveeta one time is ok. At least I think so anyways.Β 

I have tried making these with “real cheese” cubes and we did not care for it as much.

Please try these out! I promise they are crazy yum and it’s one of those “kid meals” that even adults can’t say no too πŸ™‚Β

Ingredients

  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tube (12 ounces) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
  • 4 oz Velveeta cheese, cubed small

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 400 degrees. Prepare a 12-cup muffin tin by spraying 8 of the muffin cups with cooking spray.
  • In a large skillet, cook beef over medium-high heat until no longer pink; drain.
  • Stir in the ketchup, brown sugar, mustard and Worcestershire sauce. Let cook for a couple of minutes and then remove from the heat; set aside.
  • Flatten out one biscuit and press onto the bottom and up the sides of a muffin cup. Repeat with remaining biscuits.
  • Spoon beef mixture into cups. Top each with some cheese cubes.
  • Bake for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown on edges and puffed up. Let cool for about 5-10 minutes in the pan and then serve.

Notes

For an extra cheesy cheeseburger place a couple additional squares of Velveeta in the middle of the beef mixture. Fill the cup halfway, place a couple cheese blocks, and then fill the remaining with beef and top with cheese blocks.

You will have just a tiny bit of the beef mixture leftover. I usually just stuff a little bit more into each cup or just save the leftovers for a taco salad the next day. It's not worth buying 2 cans of the biscuit dough to only use an additional 1 biscuit from the second can. But, you can if you want to.

    September 8, 2017 at 5:30 pm Made this the other day and I am planning on making it again soon. One of our favorites! I didn't add the brown sugar and used cheddar cheese instead of velveeta and they were still delicious!!
