Girl Scout Casserole from Your Little Birdie

A couple of weeks ago, Kelly's Korner hosted a blog where other bloggers posted their favorite Main Course recipe. Of course, I LOVE recipes & blogs so I was all over stalking me out some new recipes! I found this recipe for Girl Scout Casserole from yourlittlebirdie and was not disappointed! I have also fallen in love with this blog so I added it to my favorites!

Of course, I was a little late getting the picture & it's not the best one ever but....it's a picture - right?!!!Girl Scout Casserole

2 lbs ground beef
1 small chopped onion
2 small cans tomato sauce (I added the 20 oz size can)
1 can corn, drained
6-8 slices, American cheese (I used shredded Cheddar)
2 cans (whop 'em) biscuits

Brown beef & onion. (I added salt, pepper & garlic to taste) Drain & return to pan. Place on low heat. Stir in tomato sauce & corn. Top with American cheese & biscuits with sides touching. Place lid on top & cook for 15 minutes. The steam will cook the biscuits like dumplings.

I'm actually laughing at myself right now as I type this recipe! Want to know why? Well, I pre-heated my oven to 350 and once I stirred in the tomato sauce & corn, I transferred everything to my baking dish AND THEN covered with shredded cheese & biscuits. (Obviously I do not follow "recipes" very well because no where does it say do that!!) Oh well!!

I only used 1 can of large size biscuits & stretched them thinly across the top.

AND THEN....I covered with aluminum foil and placed in the oven for 20 minutes. I removed aluminum foil and stuck back in the oven until biscuits were brown. (Again, no where does it say do this but it did turn out pretty darn good!)

I served this with macaroni & cheese because that's what I made for Presley. I also added some hot pepper jelly (courtesy of my uncle Herbert) to the top. It was really easy and really good!

Hope you enjoy as much as we did!
