We had this casserole for dinner tonight. It is easy to make and really good. It is one of Brendan's favorites, and I got this recipe from his mom, Patti, shortly after we got married. It makes a lot, which is great if you have a lot to feed, or enjoy leftovers.
Hungry Jack Casserole
2 lbs. ground beef
2 cans pork and beans (15.75 oz size)
1 1/2 cups BBQ sauce
4 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons instant minced onion
2 cans Golden Layers Flaky biscuits (9.5 oz. size) or any rolled biscuit
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Brown ground beef and drain. Stir in the next four ingredients and bring to a boil. Pour into a 9 x 13 pan. Separate biscuits in half horizontally. Place evenly on top of beef mixture. Sprinkle cheese on top. Bake 25-30 minutes or until golden brown on top.
This recipe is called Hungry Jack Casserole because the Pillsbury biscuits it used had been called Hungry Jack Biscuits. The biscuits made by Pillsbury are still the same, but have been renamed. This recipe is very easy to cut in half. That is how I usually make it and instead of the 9 x 13 pan, I use an 11 x 7 pan. I usually have two biscuits leftover that I just bake on a cookie sheet while the casserole is cooking.
