Obviously, no beef is involved in the following recipe, but a recipe entitled 'Vegetarian soy crumbles cups' sounded pretty weird.
This recipe is quite simple and quite delicious - the faux beef cups reheat easily and you can grab them and go for a snack on the run. Use whatever faux beef crumbles you like.
Vegetarian barbecue 'beef' cups
- 1 package faux beef crumbles
- 1/2 - 3/4 cup Bad Mother bbq sauce
- 1/4 cup minced onion (optional)
- 1 12-oz package of refrigerated biscuit dough
- 1/3 cup shredded cheese (also optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and grease a muffin pan. Mix the beef crumbles (no need to thaw) with the barbecue sauce and the onion (if using).
Flatten each biscuit with the heel of your hand, and press them onto the bottom and sides of each cup in the muffin tin. Try to stretch the dough towards the top of each muffin tin cup. Spoon a generous spoonful of the faux beef mixture into each dough cup, and bake for 12 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese (if using) and bake for 3 minutes more.
