Barbie Cups aka "Beefkins"

I got the recipe for Barbie Cups from one of my roommates at UNCW.  It's simple and delicious!!  I took it to small group one night and they renamed it "Beefkins", which is a combination of beef and muffins...?  Too funny!  Anyway, no matter what they're called, they're usually a hit!

1 lb lean ground beef
1 can biscuits
1/2 c BBQ sauce
1/2 c brown sugar, packed
shredded cheddar cheese for topping

1. Brown the ground beef, drain.
2. Stir in BBQ sauce and brown sugar, mix.
3. Meanwhile, roll out the biscuits flat.
4. Using a greased muffin pan, press the biscuits into the bottom of each cup, allowing the extra to come up over the sides of the cup.
An idea of what this should look like...

5. Put a scoop of the BBQ beef mixture into each biscuit cup.  Top with cheddar cheese.
6. Follow baking time and temperature on the biscuits.


  1. Oh my gosh! I remember Barbie Cups! So delish!! Do you know if you can use ground turkey instead?

  2. Sure! I use ground turkey in a lot things!
