Cowboy Casserole

Cowboy casserole is a simple and delicious ground beef dish. It is a combination of hamburg, baked beans, chopped garlic, onion, corn, bbq sauce, salt, pepper, Bisquick, and cheese. Garnished with parsley flakes, it is simply to die for . Believe me, your family and friends will love it.

The great thing is, it is another dish that can be made up in about half an hour which makes it a great midweek meal. If you have leftovers, it is great for lunches. Of course, you can vary the ingredients to meet your tastes. For example, I add canned baked beans with molasses, but you can use your favourite beans. The same applies to the bbq sauce. Some canned tomatoes certainly would not go amiss either. Just make sure they are drained as you do not want the casserole too sloppy. In my opinion, the corn is great but use any type of veggie can be used.

Try our cowboy casserole and, as always, let us know what you think.

  1. My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe! I’m in the states, and I think you are in Canada, so I had to Google your la grille bbq sauce. I used sweet baby ray’s and a teaspoon of montreal steak seasoning to sub. I will definitely be making this again. I thought the biscuits were too much, husband would have liked more. Next time, I’ll cook the biscuits separately so we can add how much we want. Also, he thought it was too sweet. I liked it sweet, but I’ll try using ranch style beans instead of the extra sweet baked beans I used this time. What a great recipe, and really different! Thank you!

    1. Hi Meg. So glad you enjoyed the recipe. Yes, I’m in the great white north.Sure you can use any sauce you like. Sure make any adaptations you like. It is one of my favourite dishes though. You’re so welcome and keep cooking.
