This barbecue casserole falls into the same category as my Chili Dog recipe…in other words, it is, um, not the healthiest recipe in the world. But as with the Chili Dogs, it is guiltily delicious, and as long as you only make it once in a blue moon, you are probably safe.
The key to this one is using your very favorite barbecue sauce. In our house we like Stubbs, which comes in all sorts of flavors.
And now that I look at the picture, I see that the correct spelling is Bar-B-Q sauce.
Anyway, here’s the deal. Cook up some ground beef and onion and drench it in the Bar-B-Q sauce. Throw in a little Tabasco too, since we are going for broke here. Then take a can of refrigerated biscuits — you know the ones I mean? The ones in the exploding can that we all secretly could eat 10 of if nobody was looking? Peel them apart and lay them in a casserole dish. Pour the beef mixture over it, then top the whole thing with shredded cheddar cheese. Bake until the biscuits are cooked through, the cheese is melted and the kitchen smells like Bar-B-Q Paradise.
Happy Bar-B-Q, everyone…you only go around once, after all.
