Barbecue Casserole

This one 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.

    I love barbecues, so this is definitely a good idea for me. It's quite like a break from the grill but still having my favorite barbecue flavor in my meal! Now, that sounds delicious enough for me!

  2. Kacey says

    Oh. Man. This is awesome and will need to be recreated. I don't think this meal will be eaten, it will be destroyed!!!

    Love it!

  3. Memória says

    Oh, this dish looks amazing. I was surprised to see Stubbs Bar-B-Q sauce! Do you live in central Texas?

  4. Roxanna says

    Awesome! I'm going to cook this barbecue recipe tomorrow. We'll be having a backyard barbecue party at home, that's why and I want a variety of barbecue recipes to prepare. It's time to use the Weber portable barbecue accessory that my Mom gave me yesterday. Certainly, we're going to enjoy using the gas barbeque accessories that we had accumulated this month. Thanks for sharing the awesome recipe, Kate! The photo is so enticing.

    Very nice recipe, this kind of dishes seems very easy to prepare alone. I just want to know, how many sauce can I put on? I hope you can answer soon, because I really gonna cook it.

    I'm totally agree with Kacey because that meal is something great, I think the same because when I prepare this recipe at home I'll destroy it completely, and you know what it has the ingredient I love the most I mean beef.

    Just found your site today and I have some cola ribs in the oven as we speak. I saw this recipe and I was intrigued…and I could not help thinking, there must be some way to integrate bacon into this dish…bacon makes everything better. MMMMMmmmmmmm, bacon!

      I’m like you Johnny. Not a fan of lots of cheese. But when I come across recipes that sound absolutely delicious, like this one, and it calls for cheese, I either cut back on the cheese or lots of times leave it out all together. Since it’s just a topping, it doesn’t affect any other ingredients in the recipe.

    Made this tonight for dinner. What more can I say than: AWESOME! I used 1 1/2 lbs of ground beef and increased all other ingredients, except refrigerated biscuits, accordingly. Combined 3 bottles of leftover BBQ sauce and got rid of those little dribs & drabs and the bottles. This recipe is a keeper for me and will make again. Thanks for sharing.

      Hi Chel! I think coleslaw would be a perfect side dish – it’s cool taste goes really well with any kind of barbecue. :)

  9. Joann says

    Hi Kate, I just saw the recipe for this BB-Q Casserole and it looks delicious. I do have a question though, I was wandering if the biscuits get mushy or should I bake a little bit then add the beef mixture? Just curious, cause I do want to try this very soon :) Thanks so much.

    • Kate says

      Hi Joann! The biscuits actually cook nicely in this recipe – obviously they are crispier on the top than they are on the bottom, but the inside will be nicely cooked through. Have fun – this is one of our favorite recipes!

  10. Haley says

    Have you tried this with crescent rolls instead of biscuits? Just wondering how that would turn out! May try it tonight!

    • Kate says

      Hi Haley! I haven’t…I think you might need to roll them up the way you would if you were baking them on their own just to get the right thickness…but it could work! If you try it this way, can you let me know how it turns out? Thanks!!

      • Haley Green says

        The crescent rolls turned out good! It’s definitely less doughy but still delicious. I’m going to try it with biscuits as well to see which one we like better!

  11. BARDUDE says

    Gonna gie this a try. I’ll increase the ingrediance and use a can of cressant rolls rolled out in the pan. (less dough). This reciepe looks really good.

    • Kate says

      No worries – you should see some of my text messages. Yikes. Let me know how the crescent rolls work for you!

    • Kate says

      Hi Patty! I don’t usually drain it, but I use lean ground beef. If there are LOTS of drippings, yes I would give it a little drain. :)
