Cheeseburger Cups

 Want a warm gooey Cheeseburger tucked inside a fluffy homemade biscuit? Well here you go! Perfect for supper or as an appetizer or GAME NIGHT food!

Biscuit Dough: Or use canned biscuit dough, but they won't be as good!
2 Cups Flour
1/2 TSP Salt
2 TSP Sugar
1 TBS + 1 TSP Baking Powder
1/2 TSP Cream of tartar
1/2 Cup Shortening
2/3 up to 1 Cup Yogurt

Stir all the dry together. Cut in shortening to make fine crumbs. Now add 2/3 Cup yogurt & work into a dough. If to dry keep adding yogurt until you get moist but not wet dough! This will depend on your yogurt & how thick or thin it is. Now flour your hands & take about 2 TBS of the dough & pat into a circle on the palm of your hand. Push dough down into a muffin tin. You want a deep well with high sides.
This should make 9 biscuit cups. Now make your filling. Preheat oven to 450 degrees while the meat cooks.

1 & 1/2 LBS Ground Beef sauteed & drained
1 Small Onion peeled & chopped
1 Small Can Sliced Mushrooms (optional)
1 TSP Dry Mustard
1 TSP Garlic Powder
1 TSP Onion Powder
1 TSP Parsley Flakes
1 Can Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
Add all of the above ingredients, EXCEPT THE CHEESE, into the drained beef & cook until onion is tender. Now spoon the meat mixture into each cup using about 2 heaping TBS.

                  . Top each one with a heaping tablespoon of the shredded cheddar cheese.
        Bake 12 to 15 minutes until cheese is melted & biscuits are nice & brown! Let cool about 5 minutes & then gently loosen the edges of the biscuits. Lift out of the pan using a spatula knife like you use for frosting a cake. They lift right out! Plate up & DIG IN! Serve with a nice veggie or salad!
      HOW CUTE ARE THESE? But hearty & filling too!                                                                                                  



  1. I just tried making these cheeseburger cups tonight. They are awesome. The only thing I did different, because I'm a single mom with 2 little boys and didnt have the extra time to make biscuits from scratch, I used the Pillsbury ones. It worked great for not having a lot of time and my boys lived them.

  2. No problem Malissa sounds like a great idea ! I've not a problem with quick & easy !
