I make this kid friendly casserole every so often, but don't think I have ever posted it before. When my 30 yr. old "baby" invited a bunch of his Army Ranger buddies over for dinner, this is what he wanted me to make. He was so cute. He said, "My Mom can make anything, but this is what I like."

BBQ Bean Casserole (serves 4-6)

1 1/2# ground beef
1 small onion, minced
28 oz and 16 oz can baked beans of your choice (you can adjust the amount of beans according to how much you want to make.
1 cup barbeque sauce
3 T brown sugar
1 pkg. 8 biscuits from the dairy case
1 cup grated cheddar cheese

Pre heat oven according to biscuit directions. Brown ground beef, stir in onion, BBQ sauce, brown sugar. Heat til bubbly. Pour mixture into a casserole dish (13x9 or other). Arrange biscuits evenly over bean mixture. Bake till biscuits are done. Turn off oven, and top with cheese. Let cheese melt and serve. Put a couple of biscuits on the plate and top with bean mixture.

This sounds very similar to a recipe I have had (and adapted) called Chuckwagon Beef. Same amount of ground beef, onion, can of baked beans. My "sauce" uses 1/2 c. water, 1/3 c. BBQ sauce, 2-3 T. mustard. Once everything is incorporated, cut the biscuits into halves or quarters and lay them on top of the beefy mixture (I use my big electric skillet), cover with lid and wait for the biscuits to puff up and turn into almost a dumpling. My recipe does not call for cheese.

Now that we have gone gluten free, the biscuits are no longer bought. I have tried this with potatoes -- either mashed potatoes or a baked potato. Still delicious no matter what.

This recipe is what I call Cowboy Beans and my whole family loves it. If it stays chilly this week I'll make it son.

That brings back a memory of something my friend's mother called "Cowboy Campfire Beans." I went with them to their lake cabin quite often and we had these beans at least once every trip. Initially, I really liked them, but it got to the point that my friend and I dreaded "Cowboy Campfire Beans."

Well, one evening he told his mother that I absolutely loved those beans and she replies "That's good, we're having them tomorrow." The next evening she gave me a plate absolutely full of "Cowboy Campfire Beans" and my friend had the usual portion. I choked down that plate of beans and I have never wanted to make that type of bean recipe in my life.

I'm sure this recipe tastes good, but please don't serve me any .

Another case of too much of a good thing.
