I love swapping recipes with my friends.
This is one of our favorites from my good friend, Leslie.
We were both stationed in Okinawa, Japan and spent a lot of time together trying each others recipes.
Sometimes I altar them a bit to fit my family's tastes.
(which I do with a lot of my recipes!)
We haven't seen each other in too many years, but I can't help but think about her when I prepare one of the recipes that she shared with me.
One thing we both enjoyed were simple but delicious meals for our family. We were both homeschooling our children and after a long day of school and/or field trips we needed something hearty, but tasty, to put on the table.
Farmhouse Bar-B-Que Muffins were just the ticket!
Farmhouse BBQ Muffins
16 oz can Jumbo Buttermilk Biscuits
1 lb ground beef
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1 cup of your favorite BBQ sauce
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 375*
Brown ground beef and onion.
I also rinse mine. It helps to cut down on some of the fat.
You can leave the meat chunkier like this, but we like it in smaller pieces.
Years ago, I bought this contraption from an infomercial.
I received two of them in the mail and for about 13 yrs now, I've been using the same one.
I place the ground beef in this chopper and give it a few spins to cut the meat in to smaller pieces.
There...see the difference?
Add your BBQ sauce and stir until combined.
Pat each biscuit until approx. 4 - 5 inches round.
Place each biscuit in an ungreased muffin tin.
There are two in another tin.
Add BBQ beef and sprinkle cheese over the top of each.
Place in the oven and bake for about 15 minutes
or until biscuits are done and cheese is melted.
Add a veggie and/or french fries
And Wa-La....supper is ready!!
