Beefy Cheesy Biscuits

Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

1 pound dried beef, thinly sliced
3 tablespoons unsalted butter or margarine
3 tablespoons flour
3 cups milk (whole, 2 percent and skim all work well)
2 tubes buttermilk biscuits
1-1/2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded, low-fat works well

Instructions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Saute dried beef in unsalted butter. Add flour and stir well, until all beef is coated with flour. Add milk slowly, stirring constantly until thickened. Add 1 cup shredded cheese; stir mixture until cheese is melted thoroughly. Grease (spray) a 9x13-inch pan and place biscuits in it. Pour mixture of beef and cheese over the biscuits. Bake until biscuits are golden brown in color, approximately 14 minutes. Watch the biscuits carefully. Remove when golden brown. Let sit a few minutes to let cheese settle. Serve warm with a hearty soup or salad. It goes well with corn chowder.
