Cheeseburger, Cheeseburger, Cheeseburger Cups

So yesterday was Sunday and the day Jamie left for orientation.  I was feeling a little lazy which, I’m sure had nothing to do with the crawfish boil and accompanying beverages from the day before, and I really didn’t feel terribly inspired in the kitchen.  I’m sure that everyone has seen some variation of this recipe on social media, but this is one we’ve been using for a long time.  I think it came from Simple and Delicious magazine, authored by Jeri Millhouse and my kids go crazy over these.  I admit to being a big fan myself.

I’m also thinking I better work on some building and homesteading posts or I’m going to weigh 700 pounds by year’s end.  Anyway, it’s a really easy and tasty recipe.  Enjoy!

Cheeseburger Cups

Yield: 5 servings for people possessing self control, 2 or 3 servings for the rest of us

1 lb ground beef

1/2 cup ketchup

2 TBSP brown sugar

1 TBSP prepared mustard

1 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce

1 tube refrigerated buttermilk biscuits (not the giant ones)

American cheese, 10 cubes


Brown your ground beef in a skillet and then drain grease.  Stir in the ketchup, brown sugar, mustard and Worcestershire sauce, combining well.  Remove from heat and set aside.

Grease a muffin tin and press each biscuit into the bottom and up the sides of each cup.  Spoon the beef mixture into the cups and top with a cheese cube.

Bake at 400 degrees for 14-16 minutes, until golden brown.  Remove from muffin cups with a fork and cool slightly before serving (a lack of self control when contacting the delicious flavor will result in a loss of taste buds if you do not allow the lava hot centers to cool a bit.  True story).
