Thursday Night's Dinner

Okay, so remember back on Thursday when I made a quick stop post and said I was working on a new recipe? Of course you do, because you all love me so much and remember every word I write. Right?

It was okay. It wasn't fabulous. It was definitely edible and good. Lord Hill had seconds which is always a good sign. It's great for a quick meal when you didn't really have anything planned and it's really good for kids. I'm sure my nieces and nephews would love it. So without further ado here is the recipe with some photos.

Lady Hill's Cheater Meat Pies

  • 1 Package of Pilsbury Biscuits. (I used Grands but would probably use original in the future)
  • 1 lb of ground beef (you can of course substitute this with any kind of ground meat)
  • Your favorite BBQ Sauce
  • Salt (optional)
  • You will also need a cupcake pan and a skillet.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees (or whatever your package of biscuits tells you to do)
  2. Lightly grease the cupcake pan (I always use my misto sprayer thingy)
  3. Brown the ground meat in the skillet.
  4. Press each biscuit into one of cupcake spots. Form a little basket.
  5. When meat starts to brown add about 2 table spoons of BBQ sauce and mix well
  6. When meat is completely browned, DRAIN the meat.
  7. Add a "good amount" of BBQ to the meat and stir. (This will depend on how much you like BBQ sauce and how saucy you want your meat to be in general.)
  8. Add a dash of salt to taste. (This step is optional)
  9. Spoon meat into the little biscuit baskets you made earlier. (See first photo)
  10. Bake for the amount of time on the biscuit package. I found that 15 minutes was perfect.
  11. Remove from oven, let stand for about 3 minutes. Serve!

What is your quick and easy go to recipe when you haven't planned anything for dinner and your family is "starving" ?


  1. Ooo, like little meat and biscuit cupcakes!! :D YUM!

    My go to recipe is ... baked potatoes!! Hahaha! Certainly not glamorous but it's cheap, easy, and always yummy... our favorite part is seeing what we can do with toppings.. :) ♡

  2. Exactly! And I use a sweet BBQ sauce so it's even more cupcake friendly.

    I LOOOVE baked potatoes but I'm a picky eater so I just do butter and salt on mine. I'm craving one now though.
    Do you do them in the oven the whole time or do you microwave them first?

  3. You make me wish I could eat again. Ha ha. Medifast sucks!

  4. Ally you make me wish I wasn't so picky so I could try something like Medifast. I'm so proud of you! You're doing great!

  5. Girl, you sure know how to make us drool! I just printed off the receipe, hope you don't mind ;-)

  6. that looks delicious! it almost makes me turn meat-eater again:) but what is a biscuit in america? it's obviously not the same as in europe - we call biscuits what you call cookies, i suppose...

  7. Jen, I don't mind at all. Let me know how it turns out!

    Alexandra I kept trying to think of a way to describe them and I failed. Here is a link to the product I used. I usually eat them with gravy but they are super versatile.

    I'll be posting meatless recipes with them too. Stay tuned :-)

  8. I love the idea of using the biscuits! These look delicious. I bet I could do something with just veggies! Thanks LH!

  9. That looks soooooo yummy! Look at this, it's the middle of the night (4 am) and now I'm super hungry again.... lol
