Wow, Beef Barbecups are so good! I love appetizers and this one simulates miniature pizza cups with barbecue filling and cheese. They’re amazing. Everyone who tries these spectacular Beef Barbecups raves about the combination of flavors and tastiness of this delicious appetizer.
The nice thing about this great tailgating recipe is that it’s really quick and easy. After browning ground beef, you add Sweet Baby Ray’s barbecue sauce and brown sugar. Then you put refrigerated biscuits in muffin tins, add the barbecued meat, top with cheddar cheese and bake. Voila! You are in for one sensational appetizer!
Oh, my Beef Barbecups are heavenly and a great option to take along to soccer games, potlucks, tailgate parties, or for superbowl parties. Guys really love this hearty appetizer. They’re hearty, filling and a very satisfying comfort food on Saturdays when you want to watch sports or movies on television.
I got this recipe from Bonnie Rodriguez when she served it at a potluck one time back when we lived in Florida early in our marriage. She was always trying neat recipes and this one was exceptional. She got this recipe from Pillsbury although when she gave it to me she omitted the onion. I like the idea of having onion in it, so I make it with onion added to the recipe now.
When I original posted this recipe in July 2012, I was very new to the blogging world. I knew next to nothing about food photography and presentation. I put too much cheese on top so all you could see was cheese! Along with that I was using the only camera I had at the time, a cheap iPhone 3 which caused the pictures to come out rather grainy and blurry.
I recently remade these delicious appetizers for our 2015 Super Bowl party (February 2015), and decided to snap a few pictures to get rid of the old ones from 2 1/2 years ago. I think you will get a better appreciation for these delicious appetizers after seeing the new pictures. Maybe you’ll even consider trying these goodies for your next Super Bowl party – or any party for that matter! If you love barbecued pizza, you’ll love Beef Barbecups.
Beef Barbecups are wonderful appetizers and snacks for any tailgating party.

Spoon the beef mixture into dough shells.
