Biscuits and Beans Recipe

Biscuits and beans are common ingredients in traditional country cooking. This recipe earned an honorable mention when I entered it in a local cooking contest.—Dolores Grossenbacher, Beloit, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:5 servings


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 can (15-3/4 ounces) pork and beans
  • 3/4 cup barbecue sauce
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon dried minced onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tube (12 ounces) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
  • 1/2 to 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese


  • 1. In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Add the beans, barbecue sauce, brown sugar, onion and salt; mix well. Bring to a boil.
  • 2. Transfer to a greased 2-qt. baking dish. Separate biscuits and arrange over the hot beef mixture. Sprinkle with cheese.
  • 3. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 18-20 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown. Yield: 5 servings.

Recipe Note

Corn on the cob would go great with Biscuits and Beans. REmove husk and silk from ears of corn. Bring water to a boil, cook for 3-5 minutes or until tender. Remove from the water with tongs.

"For an easy supper, this is a good choice. I also used a larger amount of baked beans. Also, next time I will butter the biscuits before baking them, and wait to sprinkle the cheese on them until done and let it melt. The cheese got a little too brown, even burnt, putting it on before baking."
