Cowboy Casserole

Had some Bisquick to use up, so went straight to the source for a recipe that would kill the box for me. The recipe calls for ground beef, but I used ground turkey because…I pretend that I’m healthy? When covered with beans and extra sauce, I’m not sure I even noticed the difference! The biscuits in this got very crisp on the outside, and weren’t even gross soggy on the 3rd night of leftovers/4th serving.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound lean ground beef/turkey
  • 1 16 ounce can baked beans
  • 1/2 cup bbq sauce
  • 2 cups Bisquick mix
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted (the original said softened, but that was still difficult to smoosh in to the dough)
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat your oven to 425. Cook your ground meat in a skillet over medium-high heat until browned through, stirring occasionally, 5-7 minutes, then drain any excess grease.

Stir the beans and bbq sauce into the cooked meat and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture reaches a boil.

Transfer to a 2 quart casserole.

Meanwhile, combine the Bisquick, milk, and butter in a medium bowl, and stir until evenly combined.

Once the meat mixture is in the casserole dish, drop the Bisquick dough onto the top in 12 spoonfuls.

Bake 18-22 minutes, until the biscuits are golden brown.

Sprinkle the cheese over the top and bake an additional 3 minutes, or until the cheese is melted, then serve.
