Wednesdays Win {John Wayne Casserole}

I found this amazing picture on Pinterest and I've had it pinned for sometime now. I've found that I have a ton of recipes pinned on there and I've decided that each week we're going to try one! This week was this John Wayne Casserole. You can find and print the recipe over at The Kitchen Life of a Navy Wife.  The only change that I made was to use my own biscuit recipe rather than a pre-made one for the crust. It's super simple and take just a few minuets.

Crust: Baking Powder Biscuits
  • 2 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 3/4 cup milk
Mix ingredients together with a fork until moistened. Place dough in a 9x13 baking dish and form it to the bottom and sides.
