Cheeseburger in Paradise

After months of serving my twins deconstructed burgers nightly (browned turkey, beef, or chicken mixed with ketchup, shredded cheese, and avocado), I discovered Cheeseburger Cups and they've changed my life in terms of clean up.  My kids gobble them down like a Thanksgiving turkey and I feel satisfied knowing that they're reaping the nutritional benefits of eating meat.  

*Feel free to substitute ground turkey or chicken.  And go for the fattier cuts (like the thigh). Your kids need the fat for brain development.

Cheeseburger Cups:

Ingredients: 1 lb ground beef (I use grass-fed 85% lean, when possible)
1/2 cup ketchup
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp prepared mustard
1 1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tube (12 oz) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
1/2 cup shredded american cheese

In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain.  Stir in the ketchup, brown sugar, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce.  Remove from the heat; set aside.

Press each biscuit onto the bottom and up the sides of a greased muffin cup.  Spoon beef mixture into cups; top with shredded cheese.  Bake at 400 for 14-16 minutes or until brown.  Yield: 5 servings
