Barbecue Flavored Beef Squares

"This makes a pizza-like dish, only with barbecue sauce. A quick, simple, tasty dish for a family supper--a definite kid-pleaser. A 9 1/2-oz package of biscuits gives a relatively thin crust. Use a 16 oz package of biscuits if you want a thicker crust. Update: It may be tempting to substitute ground turkey for ground beef in this recipe to make it more "heart-healthy," but because the beef flavor is an important part of this dish's appeal, I recommend against it. Of course, it's only as good as the barbecue sauce you use, so make sure you use a barbecue sauce--and a hot pepper sauce--you know you like."

    We loved this...we paired it with a corn casserole for dinner the other night, and had enough of both for leftovers the next night. I didn't add the extra biscuits on top like some did, and it was still very tasty. Great meal idea that is cheap, fast, and easy.

    This was very good! We loved the unique flavor. I added some dijon mustard in with the barbeque sauce for a little tang, and I used 20 biscuits instead of 10 because mine were small. Other than that I made it as written and it was great, thanks for posting we will be having this again!

    We enjoyed this but the flavor was a little awkward for us. We have tried a different spin on it with sloppy joes instead of the BBQ and we liked that much better. But we did like the BBQ ok and it is a great idea, Thanks!

    We really enjoyed this, and it reminded me of a recipe my mom used to make with biscuits and other ingredients similar to these baked in muffin cups. Following Karen's lead, I used a 12 oz. can of biscuits, and lined the dish with a second can, the biscuits cut in half. I will add though, that even though I used ground beef as stated, there was a bit of a strange taste to the meat...I wonder if it might be the hot sauce, so I think I'll leave that out next time.

    I love this! It's FAST , it's easy, it's comfort food, it's just plain GOOD!!!!! I followed the recipe to the letter and was very happy with the results! I did have to cook mine a bit longer than stated, the crust was still a bit raw , but that was no big deal to me. I'll just make a note to leave it in an extra 10 min. or so. (and that could just be my oven!) Anyway, thumbs up from my house, this is really good! Thanks for posting!!
