    Sloppy Joe Biscuit Cups

    Servings: Serves 4-5

    1lb. 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 tsp. salt
    1 can (12 ounces) refrigerated flaky buttermilk biscuits
    5 slices Cheddar cheese, quartered.

    Heat oven to 400F. In large nonstick skillet, brown ground beef, celery, onion and bell pepper over medium heat 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, 2-3 minutes stir occasionally.

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

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