I am always leery of feeding my family one pot dishes. “Mom! My food is touching this other food!” or “I can’t eat this, it has this in it!” So when I bring dishes like this one, “Cowboy Biscuit Bake”, to the table, my defenses are already on high alert and my emotions might be a little on edge.
I think most people feel this way. I mean, you spend your hard earned money at the grocery store and prepare a meal you spent some time finding, only to have it shot down before you even sit down. I want to feed my family a variety of tastes and textures at each meal and sometimes that means lumping every ingredient into one pan. Sometimes that means the family isn’t going to like it and sometimes they surprise you…..
Tada!!!!!! Cowboy Biscuit Bake was a winner! Quick, easy and delicious! I found this recipe in my Pillsbury “Casseroles” cookbook. When I was a kid I remember doing the same thing to my mother. Whenever she would pull a casserole cookbook out of her collection, to make the grocery list, I would stand over her to make sure green peppers were not on the list. So I understand a little bit of what my kids and husband go through.
Smokey, hardy, meaty and bacony are the words I would use to describe this dish. I would have preferred a little spicier mix, but you can add cayenne pepper or crushed red pepper flakes if you like. I also cut up the biscuits into smaller bits so they spread out more. Alex (the 14 year old) gave this a ranking of 4 out of 5 stars. If Alex has it for breakfast, that usually means the recipe is pretty good. Please put this dish in your must have casseroles. It will be a hit!
