Hungry Boy Casserole

Recipe by The Finicky Chef

I found this in my mother-in-law's "Pillsbury Best of the Bake-Off Cookbook" and can't wait to try it out!

Good hearty, stick to your ribs kind of dish. Very delicious! The only problem I had was that my biscuits on top got way too dark before they were fully cooked. Next time I would lower the oven temp to the degrees called for on the biscuit can. Other than that this is a very tasty all in one meal!
