BBQ Dinner or Snack Cups for Hungry Teens-Oamc

I've seen how much teen boys can eat. I don't know where they put it all, empty limbs maybe? If you're on a budget and you're trying to cook OAMC... this recipe can help a lot. It's affordable to make, easy and I think they're tasty. The recipe calls for those refrigerated biscuit doughs but I've made bread/biscuit dough myself before and it worked just as well. That was a time the refrigerated dough was a bit more than my budget would allow. This makes 60-80 cups depending on what dough you use and the size of the muffin tins you use. It's written to be baked but most of the time they just nuke it, nuked bread.. ew. Anyhow, if you have more than one teen it's a great recipe. If your kids don't like onions just put some onion powder in the mix, they won't know it's there then.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 6 lbs ground beef
  • 3 cups frozen corn, thawed
  • 3 cups prepared barbecue sauce (I used 4 sometimes)
  • 2 cups sliced green onions (or onion flakes or powder, to taste)
  • 2 teaspoons salt (optional)
  • 8 (24 ounce) cans large refrigerated biscuits (8 count or 4 cans of 10 ct flaky kind, pulled apart flaky layers in halves)
  • 24 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
  • pepperoni (optional, makes it more like a pizza) (optional)


  1. Heat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Brown ground beef, drain.
  3. Remove from heat.
  4. Add BBQ sauce and corn.
  5. Spray your muffin tins with non-stick spray, press a biscuit dough in each, forming a "cup" (some ppl fill and bake them, I don't because the dough seems more cooked if you don't).
  6. Bake for 10 minutes.
  7. Fill with some meat, top with cheese and pepperoni if you're using it.
  8. Cool, freeze on a baking sheet, then put them in baggies with zippy tops. I use quart sized not gallons. Make them easier to handle and they get closed more often by the kids.
  9. **To cook**.
  10. Take out of freezer, place on cookie sheet, bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes.
  11. Or if you're a teen in a hurry (normal!) Just microwave them, but they're not as good of course.
