Cheeseburger Biscuit Cups

Ever wondered what the cutest cheeseburger in the world tasted like? Look no further than these delicious Cheeseburger Biscuit Cups!

Cheeseburger biscuit cups

The cheeseburger is an American favorite. Its origins go back to the 1920s and it became incredibly popular with the implementation of fast food across America. There are endless toppings and variations of the classic cheeseburger, but this cheeseburger biscuit cup recipe stands true with the most original toppings - ketchup, mustard, and pickles.

What makes this cheeseburger biscuit cup recipe unique is the petite size of each cheeseburger. Imagine all the flavor and cheeseburger toppings you love condensed to the size of a muffin! Adorable, totally perfect for meal prep, and a guaranteed hit for the whole family.

Cheeseburger biscuit cups ingredients

Here is what you'll need for this cheeseburger biscuit cup recipe:

  • flaky biscuits
  • ground beef
  • onion 
  • shredded cheddar cheese
  • ketchup
  • mustard
  • Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt & pepper

Cheeseburger Cups Substitution Ideas

  • Cheese: As is common with a traditional cheeseburger, you can choose any cheese that you like to adorn the top of your cups. You can make this recipe dairy-free by using dairy-free cheese.
  • Meat: If you aren't a fan of ground hamburger, you could use ground turkey or ground chicken.
  • Toppings: I use ketchup, mustard, pickles, Worcestershire sauce, and sesame seeds. You could add mayo to the mixture or add whatever toppings you like on your cheeseburgers. Some ideas are avocado, bacon, or sliced, sauteed mushrooms.

How to make cheeseburger biscuit cups

Here are the steps you'll need to follow to create the cutest cheeseburger cups:

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Spray a muffin tin with cooking grease.
  • Split biscuits in half. Press half a biscuit into each muffin space. Set muffin tin aside.
  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  • Once the skillet is hot, add the ground beef and diced onion. Cook until meat is brown, about 8 minutes.
  • Drain the skillet of excess grease.
  • Season meat with salt and pepper.
  • Transfer meat into a mixing bowl for the next step (or leave in skillet, depending on how many dishes you want to do).
  • Add in ketchup, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce. Mix until evenly coated.
  • Scoop the meat mixture so it's evenly distributed into the cups.
  • Sprinkle with cheese.
  • Bake at 400 for 10 minutes.
  • Top with a pickle and sesame seeds.
  • Enjoy!

How to store cheeseburger cups

These cheeseburger biscuit cups are fantastic for meal prep. They keep well, are evenly portioned, and store easily. They are so delicious, you'll want to keep them to enjoy for several days!

You can store them in a sealed, airtight container in the fridge. Enjoy for up to 5 days.

How to reheat cheeseburger cups

I know I'm always happiest with a recipe that still tastes great after being reheated. Again, these cheeseburger cups are a great option for meal prep since they reheat so quickly and easily.

Simply pop them in the microwave for 1 minute. If you have an air fryer, that would be a great way to warm these up as well.
