Farmhouse Barbecue Muffins Recipe

Tangy barbecue sauce, fluffy biscuits and cheddar cheese combine to make these hearty muffins. Try them with ground turkey or other shredded cheeses to vary the flavor. —Karen Kenney, Harvard, Illinois
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:10 servings


  • 1 tube (12 ounces) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese


  • 1. Separate dough into 10 biscuits; flatten into 5-in. circles. Press each onto the bottom and up the sides of a greased muffin cup; set aside.
  • 2. In a skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. In a small bowl, combine the ketchup, brown sugar, vinegar and chili powder; add to beef and mix well.
  • 3. Divide the meat mixture among biscuit-lined muffin cups, using about 1/4 cup for each. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake at 375° for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 5 minutes before serving. Yield: 10 servings.

"A great and fun recipe to make. I added some diced green pepper to give it a little color. And i'll have to remember to really thin out the dough so it doesn't become too thick when it rises. I'll be making this again."

"We thought these were wonderful. We had enough to reheat and they were just as good reheated. I did add chopped onion and green pepper to the meat mixture while cooking.. The recipe is in my file....A 5 star recipe."

"My family loves this recipe. However, I decrease the amount of brown sugar to 1- 1 1/2 TBS, add a little bit of onions and a couple of drops of liquid smoke."

"I've made these since the recipe appeared in TOH back in the early 90s. They were a favorite for my children's birthday parties. Yummy for a quick after-basketball can even freeze and reheat. I used to heap a ton of cheese on top. Great recipe, and great memories!"
