Sloppy Joe Biscuit Cups

1 pound lean ground beef

1/4 cup finely chopped celery

1/4 cup finely chopped onion

1/4 cup finely chopped green bell pepper

1/2 cup prepared barbecue sauce

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 (2-ounce) can refrigerated flaky buttermilk biscuits

5 slices (1 ounce each) Cheddar cheese, quartered

Heat oven to 400 degrees.

In a large, nonstick skillet over medium heat, brown ground beef, celery, onion and bell pepper 6 minutes or until outside surface of beef is no longer pink, breaking beef up into 1/2-inch crumbles. Pour off drippings. Stir in barbecue sauce and salt. Simmer, uncovered, 2 to 3 minutes; stir occasionally.

Meanwhile, place 1 biscuit into each of 10 ungreased standard-size muffin cups; press dough firmly onto bottoms and up sides of cups. Spoon about 1/4 cup of beef mixture into each biscuit cup.

Bake in 400-degree oven 10 to 12 minutes or until edges of biscuits are golden brown. Arrange 2 pieces of cheese on top of each biscuit cup. Continue baking 1 to 2 minutes or until cheese is melted. Let stand 1 minute. Loosen edges of biscuit cups before removing from pan.

Makes 10 servings (serving size 1 biscuit cup).

Cook’s tips: Five slices ( 3/4 ounce each) American cheese may be substituted for Cheddar cheese.

To reheat 1 biscuit cup, place on microwave dish. Microwave on high 30 to 40 seconds.
