The other night, I was scrambling to fix something quick for supper. The family was about to arrive home and I knew they would be hungry! From the deep recesses of my memory came this recipe my mom created when I was little. It was a favorite of mine ~ and turns out, is a favorite of my family as well! It’s sorta “comfort food” for a cool, rainy day.
Here’s how to make Upside-down Cheeseburgers with Easy Biscuit Recipe:
Brown 1 1/2 pounds hamburger, seasoning with salt and pepper. Once cooked through, drain off fat and spoon into the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch pan. Squirt on a liberal amount of ketchup.
Add a layer of grated cheese. (I’m sure any kind would do. We just happened to have cheddar.)
Mix up a batch of your favorite biscuit dough and roll out to approximately the same size as the 9 x 13 inch pan. (I’ll include my favorite biscuit recipe below.)
Place the rolled out biscuit dough on top of the cheese layer.
Bake at 375 degrees until the biscuits are golden brown and cooked through (about 30 minutes).
Cut into serving sizes. If you want, you can flip them upside-down so the biscuit is on the bottom ~ I guess that’s where their name comes from!;)
Happy Dinner Making!
Don’t forget to pin it to your favorite recipe Pinterest board!:)
PS. If you’d rather have soup with your biscuits, I’d highly recommend this White Chicken Chili. It’s yummy!
- 3 cups flour
- 1½ tablespoons baking powder
- 3 teaspoons sugar
- ¾ teaspoons baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- ¾ cup butter
- 1 cup milk
- In a bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, sugar, baking soda, and salt. Cut in butter till mixture resembles course crumbs. Make a well in the center; add milk all at once. Stir just till dough clings together.
- On a lightly floured surface, knead dough gently for 10-12 strokes. Roll to ½ inch thickness. When making upside down cheeseburgers, place rolled sheet of biscuit dough on top of the cheese layer of the casserole.
- To make actual biscuits:
- Cut with a biscuit cutter and transfer biscuits to a baking sheet. Bake in a 450 degree oven for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Makes 15 biscuits cut with a 2½ inch biscuit cutter.
