Crowned Beef Bake

"Because this comforting casserole looks so special, I enjoy serving it to company and bringing it to church suppers," notes Linda Parker of Covington, Georgia. "It's simple to put together but looks like I spent a lot of time preparing it."

    Easy, but does not reheat for leftovers very well as the biscuits become soggy. Probably won't make again, but it was a nice variation to quick week night meals.

    This was very good, but next time I will thaw the verges before cooking as it was still not warm enough after cooking for the required amount of time.

    This casserole comes out looking beautiful. It tastes pretty good. My kids and husband liked it, but weren't blown away. I would make it again.

    Im not a big fan of frozen vegetables but it worked well in this recipe. Making it Super fast to prepare. I love the flavors from the cream of celery soup and french fried onions. MMMMMMMmmmm it was fabulous. Thank you for the great idea. I will use this when I don't have much time to cook something.

    My family loved this recipe. Next time I will add more ground beef, however, there were no complaints as is. It looked and tasted great!
