Here are the details… Keep in mind this is done in a jumbo muffin pan!


1 1/2 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
1/2 cup ketchup
1/3 cup dill pickle relish
2 tablespoons yellow mustard
4 oz cream cheese (half of 8-oz package)
1 teaspoon McCormick® Onion Powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon McCormick® Black Pepper
1 can (16.3 oz) Pillsbury┬« Grands!┬« Flaky Layers Butter TastinÔÇÖ┬« refrigerated biscuits (8 biscuits)
1 teaspoon water
2 tablespoons sesame seed


1. Heat oven to 350┬░F. In 12-inch skillet, cook beef over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in ketchup, relish, mustard, cream cheese, onion powder, salt and pepper. Cook about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until cheese is melted and mixture is creamy. Reduce heat to low.
2. Separate dough into 8 biscuits. Using serrated knife, split each biscuit in half horizontally. Press 1 biscuit half into about 4-inch round. In ungreased non-stick jumbo muffin pan, press round in bottom and 1/2 to 3/4 of the way up side of muffin cup. Repeat with remaining biscuit halves.
3. Divide beef mixture evenly among biscuits in cups. Top with remaining biscuit halves, stretching slightly to cover beef mixture and slightly pressing edges to bottom biscuits to seal.
4. In small bowl, beat egg and water until well blended; brush on top biscuits. Sprinkle with sesame seed.
5. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until tops are golden brown. Cool in pan 5 minutes before serving.
