Jumbo Burger Cup

After a long hiatus of not cooking, I imagine my muffin pan is feeling a bit lonely. 
But have no fear, little pan, I have lots of special recipes in store for you in the coming weeks!

But in the meantime, just to keep you all occupied (and not with Instagram photos) here is one of the more clever recipes I have found recently for the muffin pan. And just in time for those summer BBQs!

 Jumbo Burger Cups
 Recipe from Pillsbury Bake Off

1 1/2 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
1/2 cup ketchup
1/3 cup dill pickle relish
2 tablespoons yellow mustard
4 oz cream cheese (half of 8-oz package)
1 teaspoon McCormick® Onion Powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon McCormick® Black Pepper
1 can (16.3 oz) Pillsbury® Grands!® Flaky Layers Butter Tastin’® refrigerated biscuits (8 biscuits)
1 teaspoon water
2 tablespoons sesame seed
1. Heat oven to 350°F. In 12-inch skillet, cook beef over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in ketchup, relish, mustard, cream cheese, onion powder, salt and pepper. Cook about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until cheese is melted and mixture is creamy. Reduce heat to low. 
2. Separate dough into 8 biscuits. Using serrated knife, split each biscuit in half horizontally. Press 1 biscuit half into about 4-inch round. In ungreased non-stick jumbo muffin pan, press round in bottom and 1/2 to 3/4 of the way up side of muffin cup. Repeat with remaining biscuit halves
3. Divide beef mixture evenly among biscuits in cups. Top with remaining biscuit halves, stretching slightly to cover beef mixture and slightly pressing edges to bottom biscuits to seal. 
4. In small bowl, beat egg and water until well blended; brush on top biscuits. Sprinkle with sesame seed. 
5. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until tops are golden brown. Cool in pan 5 minutes before serving. 
6. Bon Appetit! Here is someone who has actually tried it and had good results, just in case you needed some proof!

P.S. I miss you guys! Keep those comments coming :0)


  1. Whoa. This is some kind of recipe. Probably not the best thing for me to be looking at before dinner when my hubs and I have SWORN we're really starting that diet.

  2. Hey, thanks for the shout-out! I'm Brenda from Brenda's Canadian Kitchen,the blog you linked to. They were delicious, I could use one right now and it's only 9:30 a.m., lol. Have a great day!

  3. I made this when we hosted football Sunday and it was the biggest hit of the night! Now, a year later, everyone is asking--- are you going to make those burger cups?! I made a few additions - I used worcestershire sauce in the ground beef and sprinkled shredded sharp cheddar inside the cups. DELICIOUS!

  4. I would like to try this with ground turkey, chicken, or pork.


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I LOVE to read what you have to say. Love love love!
