I gave this 4 stars. My niece, future hubby and I really loved these. My 4 yrs old newphew did not like them. I had them as a kid and enjoyed them then so I thought I'd make them for everyone. My future hubby did comment that these would make a great appetizer. My copy of the recipe is slightly different it is from better budgeting. My copy calls for the 1Ib ground beef browned and drained, 1 Tbl. minced onion (opt), 1/2 cup barbecue sauce, 1 Tbl. brown sugar, 1 can refrigerator biscuits and 3/4 cup grated cheddar cheese the rest is the same as yours. I used 2 cans of biscuits and had 4 biscuits left over. I did not have a muffin tin that was useable unless lined with muffin liners. So I just worked my biscuits out flat like a pizza dough and topped them with the barbecued meat mixture and baked for 13 minutes. They baked up like little puffed pizzas. Thanks for posting a yummy recipe. Christine (internetnut)
