And now for something a little different…
Ok, I admit it. I do love a good cheeseburger. A cheeseburger cupcake sounds just a bit too good to be true. I see these as a great football snack food. Or something the kids would love to make and eat. There is no real set recipe, so you can doctor it up to suit different tastes. It takes a true lover of cheeseburgers like Cheese-Burger Net to make these sound so incredibly awesome.
It starts with a sauce. I won’t go into the exact amounts and proportions because, honestly, I don’t think it matters much with this dish. But more on that later. This was heavy on the ketchup, with a bit of mustard, some Worcestershire sauce, and a couple spoonfuls of brown sugar.
This sauce is then added to a pound of browned ground beef to produce a very sloppy joes like mixture.
Next came a tube of refrigerated biscuits. (Clearly, part of the allure of this dish is the use of inexpensive pantry items one might easily already have on hand, making this a quick meal choice for a busy weeknight.)
The biscuits get pressed into the cups of a greased muffin tin and worked so the dough comes up the sides of the muffin cups. Ten biscuits to a tube; twelve cups to a muffin tin. Leave the middle two ungreased and empty.
Now spoon your beef mixture into the cups and top with small cubes of Velveeta cheese (or any other cheese of your choice).
Bake these babies for about 15 minutes at 400 degrees and you’ll be rewarded with this:
