Begin with raw biscuit dough in casserole. The topping makes it the best dinner ever

Print this recipe
I started my cooking career in college when I nominated myself as the house cook for my roommates. Casseroles were the first thing I learned to cook, mastering baked ziti and green bean casseroles before moving on to layered dishes. The recipe below was one of the first layered casseroles that I mastered. It opened my eyes to the possibilities of using biscuit and croissant packages in new and interesting ways.
This recipe is not only delicious, but it's so easy to make too. In less than 30 minutes, with barely any prep time, this casserole will be ready to hit the dinner table. Make it your own by changing up the ingredients, subbing in shredded chicken instead of beef or adding vegetables like diced zucchini, blanched spinach or sweet corn.
