Barbecue Beef Cups

Chicken with Blue Cheese Sauce
Ranch Beef and Noodles Skillet

Barbecue is a summer favorite. It’s flavorful and messy and great for outdoor dinners on the picnic table or patio furniture. One of my kids’ favorite meals are these barbecue beef cups. They are so yummy and so easy to make, and the kids love helping me make them.

I let the kids roll out the biscuit dough and place them inside the muffin tins. They love the feeling of the dough in their hands, but they love the taste of these baked mini cups even more! The smell alone can make your mouth water, and the kids get so hungry when it’s time to add cheese to the top.
