Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease the cups of a muffin pan.
In a large heavy skillet over medium heat, cook beef until evenly brown. Drain excess fat. Stir in barbeque sauce and dried onion. Simmer for a few minutes over low heat.
Flatten each biscuit, and press into cups of the prepared muffin pan. Make sure the dough comes to the top of the pan. Spoon a portion of the meat mixture into each dough cup.
Bake in preheated oven for 12 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese, and bake for 3 more minutes.
Well, with a few minor changes...I chopped a bell pepper and onion (enough onion to match the amount of bell pepper) and cooked those through before adding 1lb of beef. Then I added the BBQ sauce and seasoned with salt, pepper, garlic, and cayenne to taste. I also used crescent dough because it's dairy free! AND I mixed the cheese right in instead of sprinkling it on top...
So I guess it's not really the same as the original recipe after all!
I only made 8 of them (one roll of dough) and wish I'd made more!! They were REALLY good!! This recipe goes on our "do again" list.
