Barbe Cups

"Basically this is a sloppy joe in a biscuit cup, topped with cheese. This is the latest favorite recipe floating around our hospital unit. Mostly because it is a favorite of our little picky eaters and it is easy & quick."

  1. Good recipe. Great kid pleaser. Easyto make, compact and neat to eat. I will make it again, but I will tweak it more to my family's taste. I also used more cheese than the recipe called for. Overall a good recipe.
  2. Quick and easy! The kids couldn't get enough. Thanks.
  3. This was a great, fun recipe! Next time I'll let my son help me put the biscuits in the muffin pan. I used an 8 pack of jumbo flaky biscuits I bought on a whim, and the barbecue sauce was Sticky Fingers original. I also used one medium onion because I had nothing dried. The biscuits were easy to form into the muffin cups, and the biscuits baked perfectly in 15 minutes. This was served with corn on the cob, and it was a perfect summer treat. Thanks!
  4. What a unique way to have sloppy joes. My husband normally hates them. But he requested them over and over again. Thanks for posting.
  5. I took this to a potluck supper one night for the kids to eat, and the adults really liked them, too. I only gave it 3 stars because it isn't one of my own favorite recipes.


I?m ?originally from Texas, but now live in Florida. Still gotta have that spice chipotle peppers, habaneros, and jalapenos. This is a picture of myself & my 2 daughters taken in Dec'06. I am working on my graduate degree, & still work as a nurse prn. When I'm not cooking and eating what I cook... I head for the gym to work out. As far as cookbooks, I love the church/ community cookbooks, where someone has dug out old handwritten recipes by granny and shared them with others-those are the best kind. If I had a month off, I'd for sure go hiking, would love to visit Australia and New Zealand.?
