This is my husband's favorite casserole. It has ground beef, spaghetti sauce, and cream cheese. Feel free to substitute BBQ sauce or ketchup for the spaghetti sauce and ground turkey for ground beef. Any cream soup will do in place of the mushroom soup in a pinch.
- 1 lb ground beef or 1 lb ground turkey
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 4 ounces cream cheese
- 2⁄3 cup milk
- 16 ounces cream of mushroom soup
- 1⁄2 cup spaghetti sauce or 1⁄2 cup barbecue sauce or 1⁄2 cup ketchup
- 10 biscuits (1 can refrigerated biscuits or enough biscuit dough for 10 biscuits)
- Cook the ground beef and the onion together. Drain.
- Mix everything except the biscuits together.
- Pour into a greased 2 quart casserole dish and top with the biscuits.
- Bake at 375 for 30-40 minutes or until biscuits are done and mixture is bubbly.
My casserole-hating family gobbled this up. I used spaghetti sauce and it had a good comfort-food flavor. The biscuits were still raw on the bottom after 40 minutes so it took a bit longer to get them to finish baking, but that didn't hurt the flavor of the casserole at all.
I have to laugh about this dish. When I first tasted it I thought it was very bland, but by the time I finished eating it-far too much later-I had decided it was totally outstanding, ultimate comfort food! :) I had enough ground beef to almost double it, but not quite, so my doubling it left it a little liquidy-my fault for putting too much milk in. I used 1/2 Mama Iulucci's pasta sauce that I had made last weekend. I baked it in a 13 x 9 pan, and I divided my biscuits by layers in half and put them on top of the casserole at half height, because we have trouble getting biscuits to get done on the bottom when we put them on casseroles. They got done and also cut the carbs somewhat since I only used half the biscuits I otherwise would. Then I sprinkled a little cheddar on top the last 10 minutes or so of baking. I will definately make this again and hopefully do a better job of doubling it-my family is big. Thanks for the recipe!
