These BBQ Sloppy Joe Muffins can be whipped up in no time and will for sure be a family favorite!
Weeknight dinners at my house test my patience in a major way.
Forget the fact that getting us all home at the same time and sitting down at the table is a minor miracle…
But finding a meal that isn’t met with complaints or “constructive criticism” is basically like spotting a Yeti.
So when I come across dinner ideas that are easy (yay me) and tasty (yay them) I keep them in the rotation.
And when I first started sharing dinner ideas here and there on my site I promised to only share meals that we actually eat on the regular.
With that said, I know I’m not reinventing the wheel here with these BBQ Sloppy Joe Muffins, but we do eat these, and we love them. So there’s that.
They’re uber simple. Just chop up a little onion and cook it with some chopped meat and garlic.
Meanwhile flatten some canned biscuits.
I have tried this recipe with homemade biscuit dough and it’s not really worth all the trouble. But please, if you prefer homemade dough, feel free.
Place the flattened biscuits in a sprayed muffin pan like this…
Mix your cooked meat with a little BBQ sauce…
And scoop it into the muffins…
Then top with cheese.
Pop them in the oven for just a few minutes and bam! Dunzo!
We also like these mixed with Marinara sauce instead of BBQ and topped with mozzarella for an Italian muffin cup. Simple and totally adaptable!
Hope you like them too!
