Cheeseburger Biscuit Bake

From Taste of Home, December 2010 Issue

While cleaning out a cabinet this week, I came across a Taste of Home cookbook from last December and flipped through it. Dog-eared a half dozen pages with recipes to try. The first was this casserole. 

Cheeseburger Biscuit Bake

1 pound ground beef
1/4 cup chopped onion (I use the canned flakes)
1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce
1/4 c. ketchup
Dash of pepper
1 can pork and beans
2 cups (8 oz.) shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1 tube (12 oz.) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits

In large skillet, cook the beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in tomato sauce, ketchup and pepper, beans. Spoon half into a greased 8-in. square baking dish; sprinkle with half of the cheese. Repeat the layers.

Place the biscuits around edges of dish. Bake, uncovered, at 400 F for 18-22 minutes, or until the meat mixture is bubbly and biscuits are golden brown.
