Biscuit Taco Bake

Most Monday nights, C & I eat supper with his parents.  I usually fix food that night and am always looking for a great new one dish supper that is easy to transport.  This is another one of my Pinterest finds.  In fact, a lot of the new recipes coming up are from there.  Check it out and if you want to follow me, my username is picperfcooking.

This is a great fix it and go meal.  I left mine pretty plain, but you can top it with any taco fixings you like such as shredded lettuce, sour cream, or salsa.  Give it a try!

1 pound hamburger
2/3 cup water
1 packet taco seasoning
2 tubes (12 oz. each) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
1 (15 oz.) can chili (or 1 1/2 cups leftover chili which is what I used)
1 cup + shredded cheddar cheese


Note: I fixed the taco meat the day before so that is why all of the different ingredients are not pictured.

Brown the ground beef then add the water and taco seasoning. Cook, uncovered, on medium-low until the liquid evaporates.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prepare a 13×9” baking dish.  Quarter the biscuits and place in the prepared dish.


Layer the taco meat mixture next, then add the chili and cheese.  Bake for 25 to 30 minutes until the biscuits are golden brown.  Enjoy with your favorite taco toppings.

I found this recipe and a great new blog on Pinterest.  I had never heard of this blog before but now I am hooked!  The name is Plain Chicken and there is a funny story behind the name so go check it out as soon as you can!.  She is a fellow Southerner and the food on her site looks so good.

Bubble Up Pizza is easy, good, and the recipe makes a huge pan.  In fact, there was enough for two suppers for C and I and 2 lunches for me.  That is a lot of food from one pan.  The original recipe says to use the pizza toppings of your choice so I chose ground beef, Italian sausage, onions and green peppers, but the there are many, many combinations you can try.  Have fun with it and see what you can come up with.

2 cans (12oz. each) golden layer buttermilk biscuits

1 jar (15 oz.) pizza sauce

2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

1/2 lb. lean ground beef

1/2 lb. Italian sausage

1 bell pepper, diced

1/2 medium onion, diced


Cook the ground beef, sausage, pepper and onion until the meat in thoroughly cooked and the veggies are soft. 

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and spray a 9×13 inch baking pan with non-stick spray.  Cut the biscuits into quarters and place in a large bowl.  Toss the biscuits with the sauce.  Add the pizza toppings and half of the cheese.  Toss until well blended.

Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish and top with remaining cheese.  Bake for 25-30 minutes or until biscuits are done.  This is enough for a whole meal so I just served mine with some fresh chopped veggies on the side.

For this month’s version of the Southern Plates-Picture Perfect Cooking project, I have changed sources just a little. This recipe is from her website instead of her book, but I had to show you all this one.  It is so so good!  I made it one Monday night and took it to my in-laws and they said that I could make it again any time I wanted to! 

To save a little time that night, I cooked the meat, onion & pepper mixture the day before and stored it in the fridge until I needed it.  This is a great weeknight meal with a salad on the side.  Enjoy!!

1 lb. ground beef

1 lb. Italian sausage

1 tbsp. vegetable oil

1 medium onion, chopped

1 bell pepper, diced

15 oz. jar pizza sauce of your choice

2 tbsp. Italian seasoning

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 tsp. salt

1/8 tsp. black pepper

1 cup milk

2 eggs

1 tbsp. olive oil

8 oz. shredded mozzarella (Italian cheese blend is good, too)


In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook the peppers and onions in the vegetable oil until they just start to soften.  Add the ground beef and sausage; cook until there is no pink left in the meat.  Drain off the fat if necessary and then pour in the pizza sauce and Italian seasoning.  Stir to make sure the sauce and seasoning are completely combined and set aside.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a 13×9” baking dish with non-stick spray.  Spread the shredded cheese over the bottom of the pan.  Then layer the meat/pepper mixture over the cheese.



In a separate bowl (one with a pour spout if you have it), combine the flour, salt, pepper, milk, eggs, and olive oil.  Stir until just combined.  Pour over the meat and cheese as evenly as possible



Bake for 30-35 minutes and enjoy!
