Hungry Jack Casserole-4 for $5 Dinner Challenge

My family liked this dish so I will be making it again and next time I will leave out the brown sugar, since it tends to be on the sweet side. I seasoned my ground meat with salt, pepper, garlic & onion powder. I also halved my biscuits and put half on the bottom spreading them out and pushing them up the sides of the pan. Baked for 5 minutes. then added filling, cheese and remaining biscuits.

Cost breakdown:
$2.99 ground meat
$.59 Pork & Beans
$.05 Brown Sugar
$.10 BBQ Sauce
$.22 Biscuits
$.00 Corn
$.02 garlic powder
$.02 onion powder
$.25 cheese
