    Started laughing when I saw these. I made something very similar for dinner tonight and wondered if anybody else ate them growing up. I add rice to my hamburger along with green peppers, onions, and cream of mushroom soup. No bbq sauce just some garlic powder, and cayenne for a little spice topped with cheese. I will have to try these!
    • Hi Amie, We have never frozen them before. We eat them all too fast! I think they would freeze well. My only question would be the biscuit. Not sure if it would soften up and be a little soggy. Let us know if you give it a try. Thanks so much for stopping by our blog! Have a great day!
  2. Hilarious! I thought this was a tacky recipe that my husband made up :) (he swears his mom made them growing up...) His recipe is very basic ... YOURS... I wouldn't mind serving company :) Ours: 1.5# ground beef. 1 bottle BBQ sauce 1 pkg grands biscuits & some shredded cheese. it is a family favorite but it is on my list beside "stuffed hot dogs" for cozy meals without company :) hahahhaha again.... YOURS is a delightful and more adult idea :)
