BBQ Turnovers

Brenda Jucknies


These are sooooo... good and they are really simple!! Hope you enjoy as much as we did!! :)

Blue Ribbon Recipe

These BBQ turnovers look as good as they taste! They are a simple idea and take just a little time to put together. They reminded us of a cheese sloppy joe in a buttery biscuit turnover. Saucy and cheesy, they're going to be a big hit in your kitchen. It's a fun recipe to prepare with kids, too. Just make sure to pinch these together well to seal and then seal with the fork.

Note: We used regular Grands biscuits (8 per package) and made 24 turnovers with a little meat leftover. If you want to use all the meat for turnovers, we'd suggest buying an additional package of biscuits. The Test Kitchen

  • 1 1/4 c
    bbq sauce (little less or more to your taste)
  • 2 lb
    hamburger meat
  • ·
    chopped onion (I used half of one)
  • 3 can(s)
  • 1 pkg
    sandwich Velveeta cheese slices cut in fours for each slice
  • 4-5 Tbsp
    brown sugar, to your taste
  • ·
    flour to roll biscuits out on

How to Make BBQ Turnovers


  1. Brown ground beef and onions together and drain.
  2. Add bbq sauce and brown sugar to beef mixture.
  3. Stir really well.
  4. While meat is cooking take biscuits and a little flour and roll out biscuits to form circles (not too thin).
  5. Then put a tablespoon of beef on them and then a little square of Velveeta slice.
  6. Fold biscuit over to make a turnover. Then take fork dipped in water and go along the edges to close. Lay on cookie sheet that has been sprayed with Pam or lined with parchment paper.
  7. Cook in 325 oven that has been preheated for 12-15 minutes until a light golden brown!! This made 30 turnovers, with some left to make a sandwich for my son. They are even better the next day heated in the microwave.
