  1. Cook bacon in a large skillet or Dutch oven over medium heat until evenly browned. Drain, and cut into bite size pieces. Set aside. Add hamburger and onion to the skillet, and cook until no longer pink, and the onion is tender. Drain.
  2. Stir bacon, baked beans and barbeque sauce into the ground beef, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low, and place biscuits in a single layer over the top of the mixture. Cover, and simmer for about 10 minutes, or until the biscuits are done. Place two biscuits on each plate, and spoon beans over.

good, easy, and fast. As per other reviews, i mixed everything and simmered for a few minutes stovetop, then popped in the oven in a 13x9 pan after topping with biscuits (my biscuit can was act...

This was amazing!! I used kc materpiece original bbq sauce and added more than the recipe called for to, which made it more saucy and "gravy like" instead of just ground beef and bean mixture. I...

This recipe is really good. I added more BBQ sauce to make it more flavorful. I also would recomend cooking the biscuits seperately to make them brown. I live in AK. and the biscuits just don't ...
