Hearty Bean Bake

I got the original of this recipe from a dear friend at church, Mary, in a little recipe swap. I modified it for our tastes and it quickly became a family favorite. It's quick, economical, and yummy. Not too bad for you either, although I can't exactly claim canned biscuits as a health food.


1 lb ground turkey (or beef) - Grant likes it even better if I use 1.5 lbs
1 t. salt
28 oz can baked beans (I use Bush's Vegetarian)
3/4- 1 cup barbeque sauce
2 T. brown sugar
1 T. minced onion (or if you prefer, dice an onion and brown with the meat)
1 can flaky biscuits
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

Preheat oven to 375. Brown meat (with onion if desired); drain. Stir in next five ingredients. Heat until bubbly. Pour into a casserole dish. Cut biscuits into 20 half circles. Arrange on top of casserole. Sprinkle cheese on top. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until biscuits are browned on top.
