Kids in the kitchen: Stuffed Biscuit Cups

Stuffed Biscuits Cups? I couldn't come up with a better name for this dish. I'm open to suggestions. This is a really easy recipe. And my budding chef (soon to be 4yo daughter) wants to help me cook every night. So I gave her the tasks of making the dough cups.

What you need:
  • a muffin tin
  • non-stick cooking spray
  • a canister of biscuit dough (or home made biscuit dough if you prefer)
  • ground turkey (optional) 
  • blend of veggies fresh or frozen, I used a microwaveable pouch of corn and black blean blend from Target
  • BBQ sauce (Hunt's Honey BBQ)
  • shredded cheddar cheese (feel free to substitute for any cheese that melts)
*** the inside of the cups can be filled with your preferred ingredients for "stuffing" the cups. Try different combos like pepperoni, marinara sauce and veggies for a "pizza" inspired version for example.

  1. Preheat oven to temperature per your biscuit container instructions (350 degrees)
  2. cook your ingredients (brown the meat if you're using a protein, saute your veggies, then add about 1/3 cup of sauce) not too soupy
  3. simmer for about 3 min
  4. let mixture cool for a few min and absorb some sauce
  5. spray your muffin tin with non-stick spray
  6. KID JOB: mold each biscuit circle into the muffin cup, pressing the middle out to fill up the sides (see photo)
  7. spoon mixture into biscuit "cups"
  8. KID JOB: top with shredded cheese
  9. bake for 8-10 min or until the biscuit edges puff and turn golden brown and cheese is melted
  10. let cool for a few minutes before serving.
These were so good that I forgot to photograph the finished version before we devoured them :-)
