BBQ Beef Biscuit Cups

I found this recipe quite a while ago on and it's become a family favorite.  I typically try to not cook with a lot of processed foods, but these are super easy, really tasty and a huge hit with the kids!  They come together really quickly and are made with stuff you most likely have on hand.  Sometimes we have it for lunch with apple slices or for a quick dinner with a side salad.  Sometimes when I make it I have some leftover filling, so I usually buy an extra tube of biscuits just in case.   You could also use any leftovers as sloppy joe filling, or throw it on some tortilla chips (bbq nachos?) I think they'd also freeze/reheat well but I haven't actually tried it.  We never have any left! :)

1 pound ground beef chuck
1/2 c. chopped onion
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 1/2 c. bbq sauce
1 (10 ounce) package refrigerated biscuit dough
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Lightly grease 8 muffin cups. In a large frying pan, brown the meat, onions and garlic powder till browned.  Drain off the grease. Stir in the bbq sauce and simmer for another 3 mins.  Roll out each biscuit on a floured surface till they are about 6 inches across. Put the biscuit in the muffin tin and fold up sides to create a cup shape. Fill each biscuit almost to the top with the meat mixture; top with cheddar cheese. Bake in preheated oven until biscuits are baked, cheese is melted and tops are golden brown, about 15 mins.
