What started as a little stomach pain last week became a full blown emergency resulting in me having to have an emergency appendectomy.  But no worries, I’m recovering well and slowly getting back into the swing of things.  I greatly appreciate all the love and prayers that have been sent my way!  In the meantime, I’ve invited a few of my best blogging buddies to come over and share with y’all.  I’m SO grateful for their help while I get back on my feet AND work on finishing up the manuscript in the next two weeks.

First up is Brandie from The Country Cook.  She’s been gracious enough to share with y’all before and I know you’ll just love what she’s brought you today.  Y’all be sure to jump over to her blog and visit her Facebook page to tell her thanks!  Here’s Brandie…

BBQ Cups (with graphics)

I am so excited to be over on Southern Bite today.

I feel bad that it’s because my good friend Stacey is recovering from emergency surgery but I’m happy that he is recovering so well! I was honored that he would invite me over again to share another fun recipe.

The recipe I’m sharing today is an easy weeknight meal. Now that the weather is getting nicer and kid’s activities are picking up, it’s good to have a few go-to easy weeknight meals that maybe even your kids can help you make.

And what is great about this one is you can make it lots of different ways. Instead of ground beef you can use some shredded pulled pork. Or you can use ground turkey or chicken, whatever suits your fancy.  Serve with some fresh veggies or a crisp, green salad and you have a filling and family-friendly meal.

I hope y’all will love it as much as we do.

Recipe Notes

Please make sure you are getting the regular-sized biscuits. There should be 10 biscuits per tub. Don’t use the larger “Grands” biscuits (unless you plan to cut them in half before you use them).

Thank you again to Stacey for always being such a gracious host. I hope y’all will stop on over to my place sometime and say hello. I sure would love to have you visit.

    Looks good….and easy

  2. What a great, easy weeknight meal especially for a busy family. – they are kinda like a grab and go! I’ve got this recipe on my to-do list. Thanks Brandie & Stacey.

  3. I started making these in the early 70s after seeing something similar in an Atlanta Jr League cookbook. This recipe is exactly like my “quickie” one where I use barbeque sauce from a bottle. I prefer to make my own but if short on time use others. I make them anytime there is a need to feed large groups easily and for funerals.

    I loved home economics and took that class every year from 9th- 12th grade. (back in the day in our school system it counted as a science credit). The first thing we learned to cook was hot chocolate (from scratch — not a mix). One of the next things we learned was BBQ cups – main dish size. I’d forgotten that little goodie. Until I saw this post. I’ll have to make them soon.

    I used to make these 45 years ago! Got the “recipe” from my 7th grade home economics class. Have never seen it since – what a retro dish! How fun!

    Give our best to your family!
