Pizza Cups

Pardon my incredibly long absence but I was knocked flat with a crazy virus that made me unable to walk for quite some time. Mom down = lots of easy, non-nutritious meals =). But, I'm back! And planning on blogging up a storm in the near future....

Pizza cups were a favorite when I was a kid. When my mom said they were for dinner, I don't think one person in the entire house groaned. We loved them! It was fun to re-make memories with this meal. My kids had such a blast trashing my table with biscuits, beef, and cheese. It was worth the cleanup, though, to see them so happy. I'm thinking I have a few budding chefs on my hands! 

This is a large recipe (40) because they freeze and reheat in the oven VERY well.

Pizza Cups

4 rolls (10 biscuits each) biscuits
2 lbs  ground beef  (I like 90/10 sirloin..)
3-4 cups pizza sauce
1 onion, chopped
2-3 cups shredded cheese

Brown beef with chopped onion. Drain excess fat. Stir in pizza sauce. Flatten biscuits. Lay into greased muffin tins. Fill with 2 spoonfuls beef. Top with a sprinkle of cheese. Bake on 450 for aprox 10 minutes or until sufficiently browned. Super quick!!

Flattening the dough~!

Pressed into pan and filled

What they lack in looks...they make up for in taste!!

The kids diving in! 

It's what's for dinner!!
