Barbecue Cup-cuits

This is an extremely versatile recipe. In other words you can pretty much change the ingredients to suit your needs and it will still turn out!

Barbecue Cup-cuits

2 1/4 Bisquick Mix
1 cup Milk
1 lb Ground Turkey
1 tbsp Dried Minced Onions
1/2 cup BBQ Sauce
Cheddar Cheese

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Grease a 12 cup muffin pan.

Mix the Bisquick Mix and 3/4 cup Milk then add milk slowly until you get a good biscuit texture. I mixed in just less than 1 cup of milk total. Mix it all together and kneed about 7 times. Divide into 12 balls. Flatten and spread across the bottom and sides of each cup in the muffin pan, forming biscuit cups. Bake for 2 min.

Put the Onions in a small bowl and fill with water. In a skillet brown the Ground Turkey. Drain the fat, then drain the Onions and add them to the Turkey. Cook for another minute or so. (You can just throw in the onions dry, or use a fresh onion, I prefer to rehydrate them so the dry ones aren't too strong.) Remove from heat.

Mix BBQ Sauce in with Turkey and Onions.

Fill the biscuit cups with the Turkey mix, cover all with grated cheddar cheese.

Bake for 6 minutes. Remove from oven, cool, and enjoy!

Like I said before these can be made with any variation you can think of: bacon or sausage and eggs, taco meat, use canned Sloppy Joe or Chili mixes (Manwich), use refrigerated biscuit dough or your own biscuit recipe, make your own BBQ Sauce, add your own special toppings (just like a taco if you use that, or gravy for breakfast ones), canned chicken with vegetables in a creamy sauce, or come up with your own family variation. Just comment and let me know what variations you try so I can know what works.
