BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger Biscuit Cups and Zesty Italian Bacon Foil Potatoes

...soooo, there I was the other night, staring into the seemingly black abyss that is our pantry, mentally combining ingredients, ransacking a plethora of combo nothingness (or so I briefly negated) and brainstorming ideas of things we could possibly have.  Quite literally, I am sick of the same ol', same ol' I had an idea to shake things up a little and get a bit crafty.  And well, it turned out petty danged amazing, if I do say so myself (yup, toot, toooooooot goes my horn).   It got the Brad Thomas stamp of approval so that's vindication in and of itself.

What did I put together?  BBQ Bacon Cheeseburger Biscuit Cups and boy were they YUMMMMM-O!

What you need:
muffin tin
1 lb lean ground beef browned
1 can Pillsbury Southern Style Biscuits
6-8 slices bacon (I chopped it and put it with the ground beef while it browned)
3 cloves minced garlic
2 T Worchestershire sauce
2 T prepared mustard
2 T ketchup
1 T apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup BBQ sauce

To make:
Preheat oven to 350, according to biscuit instructions
Brown ground beef in skillet with chopped bacon and minced garlic over medium heat
Drain and return to skillet
add next 5 ingredients and bring to light boil
reduce heat and allow to simmer for 10 minutes
in the meantime, roll out each biscuit individually
spray muffin tins with Pam
use rolled dough and lightly line cup
use a Tablespoon to add meat mixture until almost full
fold up sides of biscuit dough and use fingers to form a seal
Repeat with all biscuits and meat mixture
Heat for 15-17 minutes

We served them with these:

Zesty Italian Bacon Foil Packet Potatoes

You'll need:

3 sheets of heavy-duty foil
6-8 medium sized Yukon Gold potatoes, thinly sliced
8 slices of cooked and crumbled bacon
1 packet Zesty Italian dressing mix
Seasoned Salt and pepper to taste
3 tablespoons butter
Sour cream for serving, if desired

To make:
1. Spray each sheet of foil with cooking spray. Top each piece with equal portions of potatoes, bacon, and ranch dressing mix. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add 1 tablespoon of butter to each serving. Wrap securely.

2. Grill for 20 to 30 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving. Serve in foil, topped with sour cream if desired.
