Frankenbeaniecheesyburger Casserole

I had a whole bunch of leftover ingredients in the fridge.  Half of an onion, a quarter of another, some ground beef, a couple hot dogs, biscuits, a few slices of American cheese, a pat of butter.  So, that became dinner.  I dubbed it A whole big pile of awesomeness OMG this doesn't suck.   For the purposes of a recipe I'll call it Frankenbeaniecheesyburger Casserole.

It was awesome!  And there were no leftovers.  Yummly in my tummly.

Frankenbeaniecheesyburger Casserole

1 Tube Buttermilk Biscuits
2 Tsp. Vegetable Oil
1/2 Large Onion, Chopped
1/2 Lb. Ground Beef
1 Tbsp Butter
2 Hot Dogs, Sliced
8 Slices American Cheese
2 11-oz Cans Pork and Beans

Preheat oven to 400°F.  

Press biscuits into a pie pan or small cast iron skillet to form a crust.  Bake for 5 minutes and remove from the oven.

In a separate skillet, heat oil over medium high heat.  Cook onions in oil until they start to brown.  Add ground beef and season with salt and pepper (I use Tony Chachere Creole Seasoning).  Cook until meat is brown and crumbly.

When meat is cooked, drain off the fat and pile on top of partially cooked biscuits.   Top with four slices of American cheese.

In the same pan the ground beef was cooked in, melt the butter.  Add the cut up hot dogs and cook until browned.  Pour contents of the skillet over the American cheese slices.

Top with one can of baked beans.  Then lay the last four slices of cheese on top of the beans.

Pour the last can of beans over the cheese and make sure the cheese is covered so it doesn't brown.

Turn oven down to 350°F and bake casserole for 15 minutes.

Remove from oven and allow to cool for a few minutes and serve.
