Cheeseburger Biscuit Bake Recipe

Cheeseburger Biscuit Bake Recipe

Popular cheeseburger ingredients create the tasty layers in this family-pleasing casserole. For the "bun," I use refrigerated biscuits to make a golden topping. —Joy Frasure, Longmont, Colorado
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min. YIELD:5 servings


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • Dash pepper
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 tube (12 ounces) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits, separated into 10 biscuits


  • 1. In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the tomato sauce, ketchup and pepper. Spoon half into a greased 8-in. square baking dish; sprinkle with half of the cheese. Repeat layers.
  • 2. Place biscuits around edges of dish. Bake, uncovered, at 400° for 18-22 minutes or until the meat mixture is bubbly and biscuits are golden brown. Yield: 5 servings.

"I like the way this tastes, but I must agree with most of the other reviews about the unbaked biscuits. The first time I made it, I used store bought biscuits. Took almost an hour to cook thoroughly and biscuits were way overdone on top. I just made it again with my own drop biscuits since I figured a smaller biscuit would work. Nope! Over 45 min in the oven and the bottoms are raw. I'm really peeved at this recipe."

"At 400 the busicuts get burned and the buttons are raw, meat is cool at best and all you taste is the tomato. I will not make this again!"

"Great receipe. I see posts below on the bisquit situation. put them in a pan in the oven and cook them for a bit. then take them out and then place them on top of the casserole and you will not have the problem of them being burned or not done."

"At 400 degrees the tops of the biscuits started to burn, but the middle and the bottoms were still raw, so if you don't mind wasting your money and not being able to eat the biscuits then I guess this recipe is for you. This is the 1st time in many years that I went to taste of home for a recipe because the last time I did, it was a waste of money also. Taste of home should actually test the recipes before they publish them. Very disappointed as usual."

"I agree with some of the other people. It tastes more like BBQ then a cheeseburger. My biscuits didn't all fit, but maybe I just had bigger biscuits. I had to cut some of them in half."

"I make something very similar to this recipe. We brown the ground beef, add a can of Bush's original baked beans (15 oz), 1 tablespoon of brown sugar, and 1 cup of BBQ sauce (I use Kraft original), heat and stir until it's bubbly. Place mixture in casserole dish. One difference to my recipe is before you put the biscuits on top you cut them in half so you have two half moon shapes and place them cut side down on top of the mixture then follow the oven settings for the biscuits. There is never a problem with the biscuits not being done."

"I was just reading the previous reviews. I cannot imagine 2 people eating an entire pan of this between them. When I serve this I thought 4 servings were about right.One pound of meat for 2 people and they want to add more? I am hoping that was a mistype."

"i made this the other night. It was tasty but had more of a sloppy joe taste than cheeseburgers. Also I had to put tinfoil on top after the 20 minutes and backe for another 20 minutes so that the biscuits cooked through. Next time I will add the biscuits on top after the mix gets baked though."

"My husband has been making somthing similar since he was a kid. Brown a lb. of hamburger, drain, add whatever veggies (like onions, peppers), that you like (or have left over) and pour a can of pork & beans over the top. We cook everything to boilding in a cast iron skillet and then layer the biscuits over the top of the hot mixture and pop it in the oven until the biscuits brown. Every time we take this somewhere it disappears fast and we get lots of requests for the recipe."
