BBQ Blue Cheese Burger Cups

Ever since I made these tasty delights, I've had tons of new traffic to the blog. Thanks to all the wonderful people who commented on that recipe, I have a new - and easy! - recipe for you. All I can say is that it was a relatively effortless meal, which is great for me during the week. John was a happy, happy camper, too. He shouted "awesome!" after his first bite, and he hasn't stopped talking about them since.

Normally I would say more, but honestly I'm too tired and I know these will speak for themselves. So make them!

BBQ Blue Cheese Burger Cups
Recipe adapted from my Honey BBQ Blue Cheese Burgers and Cheesy Chicken Pot Pie Cups
Servings vary based on use of biscuits  

*1 lb lean ground turkey (or ground beef, if you prefer)
*1 can biscuits (I used Trader Joe's brand)
*1 cup BBQ sauce (I used Sweet Baby Ray's)
*1/2 cup blue cheese crumbles
*grape tomatoes (optional side)
*romaine lettuce (optional side) 

*Preheat oven to recommended temperature for biscuits (mine was 350).

*Cook ground turkey (or ground beef) on a skillet. You may need to drain, depending on how lean your meat is. While cooking, push biscuits into a muffin pan. Note, you may pull biscuits in half for smaller cups. I show both sizes in pictures below.

*Mix ground turkey with BBQ sauce and blue cheese crumbles in a bowl. Scoop mixture into biscuit cups.

*Bake according to biscuit directions. Note: If you pull biscuits in half you will want to adjust your baking time by about 2-4 minutes (less than recommended time).

*Serve burger cups with lettuce, tomato and extra BBQ sauce on the side. Enjoy!
