BBQ Uglies Recipe Review


Uglies Recipe Review

I give this recipe FIVE STARS ★★★★★

The other day I was making stuffed tomatoes and realized I had double the amount of beef that would fit into the tomatoes.  Luckily, I had just seen this recipe and the first few steps for each are exactly the same.  Turns out, we liked the Uglies so much better than the stuffed tomatoes.

This recipe can be found at


  • 1 pound ground beef chuck
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 cups barbeque sauce
  • 1 (10 ounce) package refrigerated biscuit dough
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

Here’s are the brands that I specifically used for this recipe:

  • KC Masterpiece BBQ Sauce
  • Pillsbury Butter Grands
  • Kraft marbled cheddar

5 Things I Loved Most About This Recipe:

  1. Uglies are cheap.
  2. Uglies are delicious, even though they look like a mess.
  3. Uglies are easy to make.
  4. Uglies are freezable, although they do taste so much better fresh
  5. Uglies are something everyone in the family loves.

Easy Chicken Curry

Easy Chicken Curry

This is one of my favorite easy five ingredient meals!

Coconut Milk – Canned
Five Spice Powder
Curry Powder

*Base your quantities of chicken, rice, and coconut milk on how many people you have for the meal. If you have over three large chicken breasts, I’d suggest using two cans of coconut milk, otherwise, using one would be plenty.

Quick Steps

1. Slice the chicken into your desired shape and size.  I prefer skinny strips for this meal,

2. Cook the chicken in a skillet without any spices.

3. Prepare the rice.

4. Heat the coconut milk in a shallow pot/pan until boiling.

5. Add the spices to taste.  The original recipe I used years ago called for 2 tablespoons of each which I found was not enough.  Remember, you can always add spice but you can never take it out.

6. Let the sauce mixture simmer until it cooks down a bit then add the chicken.  You can add the sauce to the chicken but I find it’s easier to add the chicken to the sauce that way the I don’t spill.

Bringing it all Together

7. Add rice to a plate or bowl and top with the chicken and sauce mixture.  Enjoy!

Do you have any suggestions for this meal?  I leave out ginger because it’s not something I typically have in my house.
