"I made this for some friends and added a layer of pepperoni in the cups before topping with the meat/sauce mixture. This really made them like little pizzas! I too, had sauce and meat leftover which made for an easy night of spaghetti later in the week. Next time I might top with black olives or some other pizza like topping to change it up, but easy and a crowd pleaser for sure!"

"I made this twice using a different BBQ sauce each time. The first time I made it I was at my daughter's house and they thought it was good. I made it a second time for my husband and mother and they did not care for it. If it was saucier, I'm sure my husband would have liked them better."

"We just finished the first batch of Beefy Biscuit Cups I've ever made. They were tasty, a lot like a mini deep dish pizza. I had the spaghetti/meat sauce left over from another night, which made this recipe a whole lot simpler."

"I'm always looking for fast easy recipes for dinners that my kids will enjoy. I told them these were "pizza muffins" and they raved about them! And they were very filling.

Note: I used two tubes of "large" biscuits but I didn't notice the 8 oz part until I was home already cooking - my tubes were 16 oz each so the biscuit cups themselves were fairly large!"
