BBQ Beef and Biscuit casserole- so easy and delicious! Your whole family will love this

While my parents were out recently, I made my dad one of the first meals I ever learned to make- and one of his favorites- our Cheesy BBQ Beef & Biscuit Casserole.

Besides being incredibly delicious, it is SO easy to make- less than 30 minutes total and only 5 ingredients!


Update March 2016– Check out this delicious Cheesy Little Smokies BBQ Biscuit Bake – a tasty, quick spinoff from this delicious recipe that your family is going to love!!!

This is the tastiest one pot dinner- super simple and packed with bbq little smokies!



My mom has been making a version of this for a long time, and I never really wrote down the recipe- it’s something we just kind of simplified and adjusted on the fly over time.

I really, really like this mix though now that I have taken the time to write it all down. You can add your own twist on it, but this super simple recipe is our tried and true hit.

This is an awesome recipe for a Superbowl Party- except you’ll need to make double because trust me – it will go FAST!

No worries though, it is so easy and quick to make you’ll have no problem making more.

One note- I am suggesting KC Masterpiece BBQ sauce. This is fairly important because you want a sweet and thick sauce- so if you use another similar brand that is fine- but if you use something a little more vinegar-y or mustard-y you may want to add a tablespoon of brown sugar at a time until it tastes right.


Also, I don’t always drain the fat off ground beef (lazy, I know)- but you HAVE to in this recipe or it will get soggy and look like an oil slick.

bbq beef and biscuit casserole- this is so easy to make, and its a HUGE hit with our family!Pro Tips:

-Give the biscuit layer a little pre-bake time for the best results. I pop them in the oven for about 10 minutes before adding the meat and cheese- this prevents your biscuit base from being gooey.

-You can also cook the beef and bbq sauce in a slow cooker for about 2 hours and then spoon into a partially pre-baked biscuit base to save space, or make this a one pot dinner by topping the meat with grands in the slow cooker.

-Reduce pans and mess- add the biscuits on top and pop in the oven for an upside-down one pot recipe!

  1. Success! I made these in a cupcake pan. Which were super simple when it came to serving. These would be great appetizers for any occasion or even a main course of dinner. The only complain I got was that I didn’t make enough , even though my husband ate 7 of them! I used the left over mix for sliders for dinner the next day! This is a keeper

  2. I have to tell you…WOW lady!! This is great! I added bacon when I was browning the beef and I put the biscuits in the oven beforehand. NO complaints from me!! Thank you so much for sharing!!!

  3. I made your Cheesy BBQ Beef and Biscuit casarole the only thing I did different was added some crispy boacon pieces to it before I put the cheese on it and baked it and my family are it up also I did half regular mustard and half spicy Dijon mustard.

  4. I made this and press baked the biscuits for 12 minutes then added the other stuff then continued to bake for 20 minites and it is still doughy

  5. Made this tonight with homemade biscuit dough, ground venison, and no mustard (due to an allergy). My husband said it was great and requested it again. My toddler also loved it. Thank you!!

  6. Made this for dinner tonight. Followed the recipe exactly. Cooked at 350 for 30 minutes and the biscuits at the bottom were still doughy and not done. Sorry, but I won’t be making this one again!

    1. Next time, press the biscuit dough to line a muffin tin (12 count) then top with cheese & bake. Real gourmet!

  7. This was super easy and really tasty. I used the BBQ sauce I had on hand, which was hickory, and it tasted great. I would love to try it in the muffin tins next time. Thanks for the recipe!

    1. I’d make 2-3 dishes then, depending on your serving size. For about 1 cups worth you can get 6 servings per dish- but this is something I’ve always had people ask for seconds and thirds!

  8. can this recipe be frozen? Would you bake it, let it cool, then freezer or put it all together then freeze and bake when you want to use it?

  9. BBQ is my favorite and it is held in my office at the last weekend of the every month. Me and all my colleagues are enjoy the BBQ. Now we will try to this recipe at next. I shared a link here for shopping online been.

  10. My mom used to make a variation of this for us growing up. Instead of casserole form, she made individual “BBQ Cups” by using a muffin tin. It was one of mine (and my siblings) favorite meals as a child – and I still love it. It’s cheap, easy, and yummy!

    1. My mom used to make this as muffin cups, too! And there was never any leftovers. Now I make it for my kids and it continues to be a crowd pleaser!
