Directions

Last week, I made this yummy, yummy, yummy casserole. It was very tasty. Kind of like a pot pie, but way better! What follows are the recipes, pretty much as written, followed by loads of notes because I just could not make this as written, ugh. Silly me, I did not take any pictures, so, you're on your own for this, kiddies. :) Did I mention I'd made a roast pork yesterday so I had an absolute ton of leftover pork. A search of what to do with the leftovers is the real reason you are reading this. :)

Leftover Pork & Biscuit Casserole

From: http://www.thriftyfun.com/tf449576.tip.html

Instructions:
  1. Put the tomatoes and vegetables in a casserole dish.
  2. Sprinkle on pork.
  3. Top with grated cheese.
  4. Add enough water to biscuits until they are runny and pourable.
  5. Pour biscuit mix on casserole mixture.

Bake at 350ºF for about 30-40 minutes, until the biscuits are cooked and the top turns light brown.


Notes

My notes:

Really, the recipe had no measurements, and looking at it, I thought geez, that's a lot of vegetables and water, so, it must make a huge casserole.  I only wanted to make this for two, or we'd be eating for a week or more and then where'd we be? Probably sick of it, that's for sure. What I used is as follows:

  • Casserole: (dish) 2 qt. (yes, this is rather large for two, but not large enough that we will be eating it for a week).
  • Vegetables: Way too many vegetables and way too much liquid! If I were using canned, I'd say dump all the liquid. I used frozen vegetables, maybe a cup or two? Enough to coat the bottom of the casserole, about an inch to and inch and a half high. I used a little mixed vegetables and a little corn. I imagine you can use what ever vegetables you like. Oh, and I had a leftover sweet potato and a half, I mashed them up and put on a layer of that; this was a very thin layer.
  • Tomatoes: I used 1 can, 14.5 oz. Again, way too much and liquid! Next time, I'll drain the liquid.
  • Grated cheese: If you did not already figure it out, you can tell by now this person really has an aversion to measuring. I layered it on top, again, a very thin layer, maybe about ½ C. It melted all over when I cut into it. Next time, I'll consider adding it to the biscuits when I make them.
  • Leftover pork: Another layer, one to 1½ inches thick, about a cup or two?
  • Water: I added about a cup and half of it. I did not make it nearly as runny as they might like. It was good, but in the future, I'll likely skip this and just put biscuits on top.
  • Cooking time: Sheesh, I forgot to set the timer originally, but I think it's closer to an hour to done.
