Beefed up Biscuit Casserole
- Ready In:
- 1 1⁄2 lbs lean ground beef
- 1⁄2 cup chopped onion
- 1⁄2 cup chopped green pepper
- 1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
- 1 can chile (mild to hot, whatever you like)
- 2 teaspoons chili powder
- 3⁄4 teaspoon garlic salt
- 1 can country biscuits (10 count)
- 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1 1⁄2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
- 1⁄2 cup sour cream
- 1 large egg, beaten
- Brown beef, onions and peppers and drain.
- Add in tomato sauce, chilies, chili powder and garlic salt.
- Simmer while preparing biscuits.
- Seperate the biscuits and halve them.
- Place i/2 of the biscuits on the bottom of an ungreased 8-10 inch pan.
- Slightly brown these in a 375 degree oven.
- Combine 1/2 of the cheese, sour cream and egg.
- Mix well.
- Remove meat mixture from the heat and stir in the sour cream mixture.
- Spoon over the browned biscuits.
- This part is up to you, I like it both ways.
- You can now add remaining cheese then biscuits or place the biscuits on top of the meat and then the cheese.
- Either way bake at 375 for 30-35 minutes.

I also noticed that the biscuits became too done with the amount of time directed, (but that's the way baking goes sometimes!). I baked the first layer of biscuits for a few minutes before adding the other ingredients, which worked well. Due to some dietary issues, I omitted the tomato, the chiles, and most of the sour cream, and the casserole was still yummy. (I bet it is divine with all of that, though!) I may try the recipe again, adding a creamy sauce of some kind for moisture (my version was a little dry). Thanks!
EDITED REVIEW: This has a nice flavor. I must have misunderstood the "slightly brown" the biscuits part and when the casserole was finished completely, the biscuits were way too done. What I did was take the total stated 55 minute cooking time listed and subtract the 35 minute cooking time (as listed after you put the topping on) for a total of 20 minutes to "slightly brown" the biscuits. Next time, I will just set the biscuits before spooning the mixture on (maybe 5 minutes)and use the cooking time of 35 minutes for the ENTIRE cooking time. This recipe is worth making again to figure out the correct cooking time/temp for the biscuits to be done, yet still tender.
